2018 Saleen 1
Power comes from a Saleen-built 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 450 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard; however, an automatic transmission with paddle shifters is available. The Saleen 1’s potent engine and lightweight yet rigid construction create impressive performance figures. Saleen claims this new sports car can hit 60 mph from a standstill in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 180 mph. More importantly, with the latest in electronics and purpose-built suspension, handling should be equally impressive — the company claims the Saleen 1 can achieve 1.2g on a skid pad. Pricing starts at $100,000 (which seems like a bargain), and deliveries are expected to start by the middle of 2018.
