Celene electric supercar announced among other "visionary products"

There was little news from Saleen, and in the meantime I was amazed by the announcement made this week. Clearly, "great things are happening", including the promise of an "explosive development cycle". The company uses a few big words to describe its agenda, saying it has "new and exciting visionary products" currently in the works.  Electric supercars are the order of the day, but that's all for now. Some of you may remember the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show Selene S1 (pictured here). Judging by the new official video below, it looks like a mid-engined two-seater sports car is still happening.  The S1 is powered by four turbocharged 2.5-liter in-line engines delivering 450 horsepower (336 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 ​​Nm) of torque. It had enough power to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 1/4 mile in 11.3 seconds before hitting 180 mph (290 km / h).  Salen has promised that a 6-speed manual transmission will be offered along with a dual-clutch automatic transmission with shift levers. The original plan was to produce 2,000 cars per year in the US and Europe, as well as a "significant" number of cars in China. Price? $ 100,000.  You may know that Saleen Automotive is a member of the Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technology Group (JSAT), a Chinese company. According to a new announcement made this week, it will soon begin accepting investments from third parties. The minimum amount is $ 500, but anyone interested in financing a car company can spend $ 5,000 or more.  As a review, Saleen introduced an SUV in China in July 2019 as the "Mac", with a petrol engine producing 400hp and 450Nm. Also on display was an electric microcar called "My Mai" with a mileage of 190 miles and a power of 107 horsepower. The two shared the platform with the latest S7 supercar, which produces 1,500 horsepower from a 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
