Saleen S5S Raptor Coming to New York Show

Follow Marty



Kia, Scion and Acura aren't the only automakers planning world debuts at the New York auto show. Saleen, tuner of musclecars, is plotting the first showing of it S5S Raptor concept for the New York show, too.

So far, Saleen Inc.'s only released this sketch, along with a minimal press release that says the concept is "designed for the premium performance market with segment leading horsepower and performance." How will it get there? With an ethanol E85-powered 5.0-liter supercharged engine, the tuner company says.

The Raptor's aluminum structure and composite body panels give it a rigid, lightweight body, Saleen said in a release. The bigger promise is a top speed of 200 mph.

How real is this concept? We'll tell you more from the New York auto show floor, as TheCarConnection.com reports from the Javits Center starting on March 19.

  3. Well I don't know about brian, but I'd love another 200 mph phallus.....I mean either way, it's a hell of a lot cooler to drive something like this than to drive oh, say a Prius.....

  5. Brian, sounds like you have a problem with your phallus. Personally, I am fine and I love this car. Bring it on the Raptor. America is back to challenge the best from Italy and Germany.

  6. Brian, Some americans love fast muscle cars, this is no different than your parents wanting/driving a classic mustang or camaro.Why are you so hurt about a 200 mile an hour car?? and why does it have to be a phallus?? I take it you are an eco freak, save the bugs and whales etc etc, typical "green" guy who piddles around in a prius and lives in a stick built house but hates loggers.........DUMBASS!!!!

  7. OK guys lets leave the tree hugger alone and lets get to the the real issue. If its produced I dout that the typical middle class hard working american will be able to afford to buy one. I will just have to stick with my saleen I have now and be content.I like the design but Im not going to hold my breath on this on hitting the road anytime soon.
