Saleen Selling the Assets and Intellectual Property of Select Models

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 7/23/2015 Megan Stewart

It's not every day that a carmaker offers up key parts of some of its most memorable models. However, GA Global Partners will be selling the assets and intellectual property of the Saleen S7, S7R, and S5S Raptor supercars. Items will include the remaining inventory, parts, molds, designs, merchandise, and intellectual property.


The auction company will also include the six remaining chassis and frames for the Saleen S7 and S7R, along with the concept car Saleen S5S Raptor that was never produced. We first saw the road-going Saleen S7 in 2000, with the S7R following the next year. Since then, the Saleen S7R went on to set 27 fastest laps at a handful of tracks. A long time would pass until we would see the S5S Raptor, which debuted at the 2008 New York auto show.

The Saleen S7 continues to attract attention to this day, thanks to its 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 engine producing 550 hp. It has been featured in a number of movies, some of the most notable being "Need for Speed," "Iron Man," and "Bruce Almighty." Video games were also a big hit with the Great American Supercar, as seen in the Forza franchise and Gran Turismo. steve-saleen-in-front-of-saleen-s7r© Provided by MotorTrend steve-saleen-in-front-of-saleen-s7r

Adam Alexander, CEO of GA Global Partners, said in a release, "These prized assets have been kept in safe storage for the past five years which makes this a truly rare and historical opportunity to own all assets and rights to the first 'Great American Supercar,' and allow a new owner to continue the legacy with the S5S Raptor."
