Falcon F7 is a $225,000 Hand Built Supercar Powered by a Corvette Sourced V8 [Video]

Making its premiere in final production trim at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show is the limited run Falcon Motor Sports F7 sports car, a prototype of which you may remember seeing at the 2010 edition of the North American International Auto Show.

Based in Holly, Michigan, which is about an hour’s drive from Detroit, Falcon began working on the F7 in 2009 and completed development in late 2011.

Falcon says that the F7’s exterior design drew its general inspiration from the 1980s-era supercars, while the interior was crafted to accommodate drivers up to 6’4 (195 cm) in comfort.

The F7 is well equipped for its category with standard features including several amenities such as an iPod docking station, Bluetooth device connectivity, Garmin GPS, premium audio system, keyless locking and ignition system, power windows, and air conditioning.

The hand built sports car rides on a unique tig-welded aluminum chassis with an integrated carbon fiber structural tunnel, as well as carbon fiber reinforced floor pan and firewall. Like many exotics, the F7’s body panels are made of lightweight carbon fiber.

The mid-mounted V8 engine and most parts of the suspension are sourced from the Corvette. The naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 LS7 is rated at 620 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 585 lb-ft of peak torque at 5,400 rpm, and is linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels.

Depending on the configuration, Falcon says that the F7 can go from zero to 60mph (96km/h) in 3.3 to 3.6 seconds, reach a top speed of 190 to 200mph (305 – 322 km/h), achieve 1.1-1.3g maximum lateral acceleration and come to a complete stop from 60mph in less than a 100 feet.

Production of the F7 Series 1 will be limited to 10 units with prices starting from $225,000.
