    There is proof that theer are a few saleen s7's ordered to canada. Some people have told me that they arent legal or none were bought. well now you can take a look and c. lol in this article it says Panoz hopes to sell 100 2 canada each year. lol joke of the year. But those Panoz are dam nice...I also didnt kno that visconti ordered 1 for himself.

    Canada is a hard to crack with that and many exotics. Too conservative.

    Only one Panoz (Thank God) was sold out of the Toronto store and it went to the Prairies.

    The Calgary Herlad wrote there is at least one S7 in Calgary, perhaps it was even two to one owner? It's been a year or so.... don't have the best memory.

    That guy in Calgary who used to own that Modded Murcielago Roadster sold it and got a Saleen S7TT. Thats the only one i can think of... Auto Bugatti in Montreal had one in the showroom in 2004 before the autoshow aswell.

    Hey bro, you should ask our friend Glenn out west because I do believe that guy still owns that "modded" Murcie and also has the S7. The S7 is in Beverly Hills and Murcie in the prairies.

    That one at Gentry is the only "in stock" one available. It is in the process of being sold to the lottery as per the owner of Gentry. The only one ever sold was to a very wealthy dude in the prairires.

    Cheers,

    Vasco.

    P.S James, how's biz bro?

    He still owns the murcilago and it listed for sale but I bet the price is firm. The Saleen is in Canada, but if you check closely it is registered in Colorado. It is only visiting. To the best of my knowledge, gained from talking to people at AutoBugatti when I had my car there this summer... S7's still are not legal to be registered in Canada.

    LOL, There may be a couple around in Canada but they are gray market Im sure. Years ago I saw an Esperante in Oakville. These cars are ugly.

    The hardest task I ever had was trying to sell this $130+PLUS piece of **** at the auto show a couple of years ago for John the owner of Gentry. 11 days worth :( John we are friends but sorry to say it was hard.

    $130K g's PLUS for an Esperante??? Can you say Porsche 911? Or a used 2000 Modena? The Panoz is almost all Ford. Heck even the key fob is a ford key fob. Looked like I was getting into a Windstar.

    It was a tuff sell.

    Im with Vasco on this one, The Esperante is just ugly. And it doesn't even perform good! Got a flimsy V8 producting 320BHP, the base 997 911 Carrera has more. For the Price i would get a 997 Carrera S and with the money i saved i would have some fun learning the car on the track.

    Yes, I know. I have been saying there is one in Winnipeg for about a year now. Went from Toronto to Winnipeg. Ever hear of Canwest Global ;)

    That pic appears to be it. I saw it in person. Its a special order GTLM. I still hate it. But still cool nonetheless ;)
