This shot of a Saleen S5S Raptor was taken at the 2008 Concours d’Elegance car show held at Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester Hills, Michigan. This show always has an excellent collection of both vintage and new automobiles. I’m looking forward to this year’s show.
The Saleen is one of the fastest production vehicles available today. With its 5.0 liter engine, it can do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 200+ mph.
Comments and feedback welcome.
