    I thought saleen was out of atlanta. I know that there offical driving school is out in cali (everyone who buys an S7 must go to there driving school) but not there headquaters

    Edit, just found out that they are in cali.

    I love what they say about detroit. "the most dangerous place in the world" I wouldn't say in the world but I would in the US.

    I've heard US retail to be about $160,000. Not bad at all for the performance per dollar ratio! :)

    I want one...

    whenI was like 10 I got those car sheets with stats and info on them in the mail and I decided that I wanted a gt40 for my first car not nowing how expensive they are. eventually I switched my mind to a 300zx to a civic to a supra or alltrac to a 3000gt vr4 to a mk3 supra again

    it is the first supercar, the concept was designed like 30+ years ago, whereas the S7 (which I also like :homer drool:) was only recently designed.
