Saleen S5S Raptor

Saleen has unveiled a new supercar concept at today’s New York Auto Show that boasts a 650-horsepower V8 engine running on ethanol. The sprint to 60mph takes just 3.2 seconds and top speed is an estimated 200mph. Other features include a lightweight aluminum chassis and composite body and a six-speed manual transmission sending drive to the rear wheels. Already being touted as the successor to the current S7 flagship, the new car is still in the design phase and will only go into production if it receives enough interest from show goers.
