…I thought you guys might get a kick out of this post by Randall Halcomb at AutoBlog, with spyshots of a Bugatti evaluation team out with a Saleen S7 twin turbo along as a benchmark. The 987 horsepower, 253 mph Bugatti has eclipsed the 750 horsepower Saleen, and the 806 horsepower Koenigsegg CCR for the moment. But it is rumored that Steve Saleen has a 1000+ HP variation in the works. And Dan Knott, Director of Chrysler Group’s Street and Racing Technologies, expects to see a whole crop of 1000hp supercars in the near future.

Of course, it’s a bit silly to try to compare the two. The Bugatti is a 4300 pound luxury grand tourer, most comparable to the Mercedes McLaren SLR, while the Saleen is a 2950 pound street racer, most competitive with the Koenigsegg CCR or Pagani Zonda F.
