    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone knew what the car on the gilette 3 turbo challenge advertisements is?

    I can't place it. It looks kinda like a gt40/enzo/f50/zonda cross. :)

    This comercial and the Bridgestone comercial with the Enzo and the F2003(or is the F2002) Are the only comercials I dont mind seeing.

    I gotta say - the s7 looks a lot nicer in red and on the tv than it does in any net pics I've seen of it so far. :)

    Agreed, it looks nicer in red. But in general, I think its a horrible car for the $$$

    I think it's a pretty sweet car. It's one of the only cars that comes to my head if someone mentions a American "supercar" Performance and styling wise. It is a little pricey though. But not compared to a car that is somewhere close to it's league like a Enzo or something. Although I guess a Enzo is to big of a comparison for a S7.

    It looks good, but really. It is a ripoff of the XJ220.

    I never thought about it that way, but now that I do, I think you are right.

    Anybody know how these have been selling? And what used ones are changing hands at right now? Haven't seen a lot of these on the market?!

    not a ripoff of a jag at all After all you could say that it is more like the racing porsches or the lemans toyotas but the jag no

    I'm suprised that people are impressed with it. I thought it was good value at 375000 but I guess not as compared to the mosler supercar. Anyway I read that the Saleen could travel upside down in a tunnel at speeds beyond 160mph.

    In theory yes. It creates enough downforce.

    EDIT: I'm surprised that people aren't impressed with it. I wouldn't mind one myself

    Vik, I wld hazard a guess that fewer than 10-20 cars have been delivered so far, so I doubt they're "changing hands" just yet.

    I see one at Lambo Dallas, that is maroon, everytime I go there. It is always breaking down.
