Have You Ever Wondered What Owning A Saleen S7 Would Be Like?


The answer is...not fun.

We all have an idea in our minds about owning our dream supercar. Some of us dream about owning something from one of the "established" supercar manufacturers like Ferrari or Lamborghini. Others may think these brands are a bit too "common" and seek put something a little more exotic, like Pagani or Koenigsegg. Back in the early 2000s, Saleen was one of these latter manufacturers building insane supercars that could take on the best Italy had to offer. However, could you reliably own a Saleen S7 without any major issues?

YouTuber SuperspeedersRob finds out what it is like owning a boutique supercar like the S7. As it turns out, the car had problems almost immediately. For starters, it had an immobilizer and refused to start. When you have a car from a small car company, you can't just call the dealer to ask for help.

After that issue was fixed, he learned that you need to pin the throttle on the startup to make it fire up. We guess it is just par for the course with a boutique car like this. Apparently the car had other problems like leaking fluids, and overheating in traffic. If you are the kind of person who loves constantly fixing your car, maybe this wouldn't be so bad. But for most people pending six figures on a car, they want it to actually work.
