Saleen S7: no cop can catch it

The Saleen S7, now being drooled over at the New York International Auto Show, can go over 200 miles per hour, and reach 60 MPH in under three seconds.

Its seven-liter 750 horsepower engine and monster brakes can take you from zero to 100 MPH and then back to zero in about 11 seconds; so there's a good chance that a donut-munching cop won't even notice you.

The S7R race version won Sebring in 2001, set a track record at LeMans. and has 50 wins to date. Price for the civilian S7 is $580,000, but you'll probably never have to pay for a speeding ticket -- unless you encounter a rocket-propelled policeman.
