Falcon brought its F7 supercar to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Made in Michigan, it is a mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive, very-limited production racer.
Its 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 (a modifiled LS7 of Corvette origin) provides 620 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque. The body is made from carbon fiber, and the car weighs less than 2800 pounds. Falcon unofficially claims a 0-60 time in the low-three-second range, and a top speed of about 190 miles per hour. With its high power-to-weight ratio, this supercar offers what Falcon calls an “on-the-edge feeling,” that demands the attention of the driver.
It’s not totally raw without comfort and convenience, though. It features unique leather seats, iPod connection, Bluetooth technology, Garmin GPS, power windows, and air conditioning.
Falcon’s goal is to build just ten examples of the F7 this year.
