The wild Saleen S5S Raptor supercar never made it to production but one lucky individual will soon be able to own the only example in existence.

That’s because the assets and intellectual property to the Saleen supercar division is up for sale.

GA Global Partners is offering all remaining inventory, intellectual property, molds, parts and collectibles for the Saleen S7, S7R and S5S Raptor through a Date Certain Private Treaty Sale. Included with the one-of-a-kind offering are the six remaining chassis and frames for the Saleen S7 and S7R, as well as the one-of-a-kind concept car for the Saleen S5S Raptor (seen above), that never went to production.

According to GA Global Partners’ website, all of the assets have been kept in safe storage for the past five years and could potentially mean the S5S Raptor finally gets produced. The gorgeous S5S Raptor was first unveiled at the 2008 New York Auto Show while the S7 is well known around the world after being introduced in 2000. The S7R race variant came a year later and captured nearly 30 poles and set 27 fastest lap times at numerous tracks, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

All the assets are located in Sun Valley, California and interested bidders will have to fill out a form on the company’s website in order to become a qualified bidder.
