Currently reading: Detroit motor show 2012: Falcon F7
The Falcon F7 promises 612bhp from its 7.0-litre Chevy V8 and a $225,000 price tag

Falcon Motorsports has revealed its new Falcon F7 supercar at the Detroit motor show. The F7 is the work of Michigan-based tuning firm Falcon and is seen in production form exactly one year on from the Falcon Mach 7 conce pt at last year’s show.

Power for the concept comes from Chevrolet’s 7.0-litre V8 LS7 engine, tuned to produce a mighty 612bhp and 600lb ft. Upgrades over the standard engine include a carbonfibre intake manifold and a revamped ECU. The F7 weighs in at 1263kg.

The bodywork is all made from carbonfibre. The chassis is a hydroformed tube chassis, with the suspension based on the current generation Corvette. Falcon claims the bodywork is well suited to low volume production; the firm plans to build just 20 F7s per year.

Inside, the retro-themed interior gets features including special leather sports seats and aluminium trim for the instruments and switchgear.

The F7 is set to cost $225,000 when it goes into production later this year.

Prove is in the production,and with lack of clear images we can't judge this car properly,but having only one i'd say it's another American special, nothing more nothing.....

Shame there's no pics of the interior, sounds almost Spykerish.
