The Italian Saleen S5S Raptor is a two-seat creampuff that can put other comparable mid-sized hot rods to shame. Plus, it is eco-friendly with a 5.0L Supercharged engine that runs on ethanol, protecting our environment. Look for the production model in 2010 for $185,000.

Critics feel the Saleen looks like a Lamborghini, but those who have seen the car in person disagree. Autoblog notes, "I didn't mention the cars I thought the Raptor looked like, but a fair number of commenters did. This is what you should know: in person, the car looks like nothing else but the S5S Raptor, and it looks better than any car you think it might look like. It is, to put it plainly, all kinds of hot."
