Saleen S5S Raptor revealed

Though the car won't be officially unveiled, Auto Blog has the details and pictures of Saleens new super car. Though slated to slot below the hardcore S7 in Saleen's lineup, the S5S Raptor looks no less the part of a high-powered high-performance sports car. It's powered by a supercharged 5.0L engine mounted amidships producing around 650 horsepower and 630 lb-ft. of churn on a steady diet of E85 ethanol. The aluminum chassis 2-seater can get from 0-60 in a supercar-standard 3.2 seconds. The retro bit: a six-speed manual gearbox. A paddle-shifting sequential is also in the works and may be ready when the car goes into production in 2010. Compared to the S7, the S5S is another relative domestic bargain at only $185,000. We'll bring you more info of the S5S when it officially launches tomorrow,as well as pictures.[Source Auto Blog]
