2008 NY Show – Saleen S5S Raptor Concept
This bright yellow exotic captured everyone’s attention at the 2008 New York show, and signaled that Saleen might be coming to market with a successor to the vaunted S7 Twin Turbo. The S5S Raptor got its power from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine teamed with a 6-speed manual transmission. According to Saleen, with 650 horsepower on tap the S55 Raptor could reach 60 mph in a mere 3.2 seconds, with a top speed exceeding 200 mph. The expected price was to be around $185,000, but unfortunately we never saw this car again.
