The S1 will be built in China, but will be available to buyers in the U.S.

According to a report from China Daily, Saleen will be showing off a four-cylinder "supercar" dubbed the S1 later this month. The coupe will be built by Jiangsu Saleen Automotive Technology Co., a joint venture between Saleen and its Chinese manufacturing partner, and will come powered by a 2.3-liter Ford engine.

Power output will be somewhere around 450 hp (335 kW) and 425 pound-feet (576 Newton-meters) of torque. Top speed will be limited to 180 miles per hour (290 kilometers per hour), and an electric version is rumored to arrive sometime in 2018. No details on chassis or transmission just yet, but the vehicle was built and designed in the Saleen offices in Corona, California.
