Using every last drop of supercar know-how gained from the development of the S7 and S7 TT Saleen designed the S5S Raptor with the Ferrari F430 and its European ilk well-and-truly in its sights. Slated to hit showrooms at less than half the price of its hardcore big brother, it made its first appearance at the 2008 New York International Auto Show. And it certainly looked the part, thanks to the input of renowned auto stylists, ASC. From its curvaceous carbon-fiber, sun flair-yellow-clad exterior, to its full-length, solar-tinted sunroof, everything about the S5S Raptor screamed "supercar".
