The Falcon F7 project commenced only five years ago, when engineer and car enthusiast Jeff Lemke decided it’s time to build his very own supercar . It took Falcon Motorsports less than three years to complete it, just in time to show the production version of the vehicle at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show .
The F7’s configuration is pretty much basic and in accordance with today’s supercar standards. It rides on a tungsten inert gas-welded aluminum chassis with a carbon-fiber/kevlar reinforced floor pan, the body panels are made of carbon fiber, while the GM -sourced V-8 engine is mounted behind the seats.
Yes, like most small automotive ventures, Falcon Motorsports did not develop its own powertrain or suspension system, choosing to borrow them from the previous Chevrolet Corvette Z06 .
Although the recipe sounds similar to those used by Shelby SuperCars or Hennessey , the Falcon F7 has yet to stir the supercar waters, probably because it has no speed records or thousands of horsepower attached to its name. But despite its rather anonymous status, this unique, daring vehicle is worthy of your attention.
