    Hi all, I've owned a tuned Saleen S7 for some time now and ... well its very quick but its not exactly pretty in my opinion. PabloTeK who i cruise with a lot hates nearly every aspect of the car but i think its just a bit unfortunate looking ;)
    So, what do you think about the:
    • Looks?
    • Speed?
    • Acceleration?
    • Pricing?
    • Handling?

    - Looks: Suck
    - Speed: Good
    - Acceleration: Good
    - Price: Overpriced rubbish
    - Handling: Sucks, only good for drifting and going in a straight line, not able to take a normal turn with a decent speed.

    I would rather be hit by a truck than drive an S7

    Looks - 4/10 (Looks good from some angles)
    Speed - 8/10 (Almost as fast as F1 and CC8S)
    Acceleration - 10/10 (Liek, wroom)
    Price - 5/10 (High price for okay-ish car)
    Handling - 1/10 (It goes good in a straight line)

    Ford GT? I know it's got Lotus steering and all, but it's still american.
    On to the S7:

    • Looks: Good on some angles, but a bit too "extreme" for me, if you know what I mean? For example, the length..
    • Speed: What needs to be said here? It's going, it's going, and it's GONE!
    • Acceleration: Definitely one of THE fastest.. But on top speed, it can't match the swedes.
    • Pricing: Too much, for what you get..
    • Handling: Well.. Some say it goes in a straight line and that's it.. I disagree... No it doesn't corner, but it doesn't go in a straight line either! No in HC mode atleast.

    Yeah I went in the Saleen last night in HC and I spent a long time going around in little circles, while trying to go in a straight line!

    Yeah in HC mode, it is terrible to get in a straight line. Much more easier in regular mode.

    Yeah, for a real man get a pink Chevrolet SSR! Or, get a pushbike, both go quicker in HC. :D

    • Looks - like a 'generic' sportscar (as in racing classification) ... boring
    • Speed - yes it's very quick in a straight line
    • Acceleration - yes it gets there very quickly
    • Pricing - Well race cars are supposed to be expensive I guess
    • Handling - I didn't realise it had any?
    Oh mine is nail varnish pink by the way ... and yes I hate it ... a poor imitation of the McLaren F1

    I had one and people used to call me a noob because i could drive it and not crash and i don't race in this game so i don't know what there problem was. I sold it so I could buy some DLC cars.
