As fun as a Pokemon encrusted Neon might be, we might have to take a pass and bid on this lot instead. Not one, but two Saleen S7R racecars are up on eBay right now. The ACEMCO team cars from 2004 through 2006 are available right now as a ready-to-race complete set-up. Car #63 is chassis #029. It competed in the ALMS series in '04 earning 7 podiums in 9 starts. It also ran a partial season in '05, finishing on the steps in half of its four races that season. The second car took over for the rest of the '05 ALMS season and raced in 2006 as well. This is car #66 (chassis #031), which racked up 2 poles and 3 podiums in 6 starts. Then it headed to Europe where it finished 6th in class and 11th overall in the 24 Hour of Le Mans in 2006. Along with these two turn-key racers, the winning bidder will get a huge inventory of spares.
As delivered, the Saleen S7R was a 600-hp, normally aspirated monster. The street version produced a still respectable 550 hp, but had additional street requirements that added a couple hundred pounds. You could go for a street twin turbo, or even the Competition package and get a full 1,000 hp, but these are racecars and competitive ones at that. The seller of this racing pair is asking for at least $1.2 million, but a quick $1.3 million will meet the Buy It Now price and allow you to be king of the paddock at the next track day. That's two full on racecars for less than the price of a new Veyron. Seriously though, the cars can compete in FIA GT or presumably ALMS races, as well. We figured these were appropriate finds considering that the 12 Hours of Sebring, which kicks off the 2007 ALMS season, is a little over a week away.
Thanks for the tip, TJ!
