Steve Saleen has revealed some new details about his upcoming supercar.

Speaking at the launch of the SA-30 Anniversary Editions, Saleen told Autoblog "We haven't forgotten about the supercar genre. We are working on what we'll call the S8 and the continuation of the American supercar."

Saleen declined to go into specifics but he has previously said the car will pick up where the S5S Raptor concept left off. As you may recall, the S5S had a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that produced 650 bhp (484 kW) and 630 lb-ft (853 Nm) torque. It enabled the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 200 mph (321 km/h).
