Saleen S7

went to my grandparents place for thanksgiving (Columbus/Dublin Ohio area) and my family went to all these different car dealers to look around...we went to this exotic car dealer (the biggest exotic car dealer in the nation) and saw a brand new Saleen S7...it was the sexiest car i've ever seen...i have pictures, and will post as soon as i know how to work my new scanner...it was silver with chrome 20's in back and 19's in front...they were selling it for $441,000....there were also 3 ferrari's (350 spyder, 612, 545), 2 Aston Martin's (V12 Vanquish, and i dont know the other), a Masserati (dont know the model), and alot of other's...then the sales person i was talking to said to wait outside..he drove around a brand new Bently Continnental GT..it was the best time i ever had at their house

Yeah the S7 is one badass machine. I read somewhere that they are soo aerodynamically cool that at top speed in a round tunnel it could theoreitcally drive upside down.

while the S7 is undoubtedly a fine piece of automobile engineering, i dont think that it could drive upside down even at top speed. To do that would require more downforce then the car weighs. I think the S7 is in the low 3000 lbs area, so i think you were mislead by what you read.
only F1 and indy cars have to capability to do that sort of "flying".

now i think that i read a C&D article where they said that the front lip on the S7 is so strong that if you balanced the car on its front lip, that it could support all of the S7's weight. IMO thats a bumper that every dropped car desires.
