American Supercars?

Does anyoen have any views or experience with either the Saleen S7 or Mosler MT900? The Mosler in particular seems to have gotten good reviews (at least from Leno).

Two good videos on the Mosler. Talked to a former owner today. He could not say enough good things about the car.

Both these cars have a very good reputation (and results) as racers featuring American V8s and pure racing car components. They should be very interesting cars to drive.

Pure sports prototype chassis combined with the reliability/maintenance cost of American V8s.

Certainly not practical cars to haul around, with those big diffusers and what not.

But then you have an F50 to compare...

No appeal. While the latest GT40 was produced by Saleen for Ford, I believe it is much more of a road than race car. The Mosler and Saleens are much more focussed.

Did you watch the videos?

The Salleen S7 is a monster to behold, it is sleek, mean, aggressive looking and I have seen it beat the almighty Enzo a few times. That being said it only beats it when it is running properly and that is few and far between, they are plagued with problems constantly.

I think it's a turboed Ford V8.
