I can scan the article but the performances of the N/A Saleen have been timed by Road and Track (or Car and Driver ? ) I will search the book and post the numbers if desired but I can't post the article

0-100 mph : 8.9 s
1/4 mile : 11.8 @ 119.9 mph

bracking :

60-0 : 125 ft.
80-0 : 230 ft.

Skidpad : 0.99 g

Slalom : 70.6 mph
Second one :
Road and Track August 2003 0-100-0 mph contest against the Murcielago (pages 72;73;77)

0-100-0 mph : 14.3 s with a 0-100 mph in 8.6s (747 ft.), 0.7s of transition and 5.0 s for braking in 369 ft.
Third :

bracking :

I didn't quote the top speeds because they were estimations only (220 or 223 mph)
