A 2005 Saleen S7 Twin Turbo will be sold as part of ‘The Pinnacle Portfolio’ from RM Sotheby’s on August 13. It will be offered without a reserve and is expected to sell for between $350,000 and $500,000.
This particular S7 was the first press vehicle presented by the American marque. Additionally, it was the first fitted with the Competition Package and thanks to increased turbocharger boost and revised engine mapping, is one of just two examples producing around 1000 hp compared to the 850 hp provided by most other S7 Twin Turbo models. Thanks to all this power, the car can hit 96 km/h in less than 3 seconds as well as a top speed nearing the 400 km/h mark.
The car was soon featured in the Iron Man film of 2008 and was one of numerous vehicles in Tony Stark’s impressive fleet. Soon after it silver screen debut, this S7 Twin Turbo found its way onto the set of Redline alongside the likes of a Ferrari Enzo and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
The current owner acquired the vehicle in 2011 and it has under 4650 miles on the clock.
