2018 Saleen 1 Review 

The 2018 Saleen S1, also known as the 2018 Saleen 1, was an American car manufacturer’s Saleen automotive sports car designed and constructed in two places. It is the first fully developed car since the Saleen S7 finished its production in 2009, and it was unveiled at the 2017 LA Auto Show. S1, with a starting price of US$100,000 each, is expected to be 1,500 units each year. Saleen was quickly established in 1983 and was one of the most popular Ford Mustang tuning firms in the US. In the 90s, Saleen was already a highly acclaimed company before launching the S7 in 2000.

One of America’s first handmade supercars, the S7, has become a legend and has been on the market for no less than nine years. Once the S7 has been discontinued, Saleen has re-designed muscle cars and not just the Mustang but Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger (and the Tesla Model S) have been updated. However, Saleen seems to be able to start the second original design now. It is known as the S1, which was launched at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2017.

A surprising appearance is the small sports car. It came not only from the outside but also at a time when Saleen barely came out of years of financial difficulties. And the company based in California has big plans for the S1 in the hope of selling over 1,500 units in the United States alone a year. The two Doors are both made by the American company, a major feat after Saleen almost failed a few years back. Saleen was almost bankrupt. However, it is worth noting that in this project, Saleen is not alone. Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technology Group is currently manufacturing the S1, a China company that builds a manufacturing facility for billions of dollars in the country.

2018 Saleen 1 Interior

In the S1, leather, suede, and Alcantara are mostly finished. Sirius, Apple CarPlay, and a six-speaker sound system also provide apps. The Saleen 1 utilizes a double-wishbone suspension on the front and rear axles of the car, making the suspension kinematics and functions like the slope or a toe easier to change.

Even if the car is months away from release, we managed to look at its cabin very well. The concept has the inside of Alcantara and leather upholstery in black and white. The production model can be expected to be a little more subtle. However, there should be a touch panel infotainment system in the middle of the fully digital instrument cluster on the production model only.
