You don’t see this every day, to say the least. Currently for sale on Cars and Bids is a 2014 Falcon F7 supercar. Chances are you either forgot about the Falcon F7, or have never heard of it in the first place, so here are the basics: it’s a mid-engined supercar built in Metro-Detroit, Michigan packing 620 hp courtesy of a C6 Corvette Z06 sourced LS7 modified by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering in a carbon, aluminum and kevlar monocoque. But in reality, the Falcon F7 is so much more, and they rarely pop up for sale, seeing as you can almost count all of them with one hand.
The Falcon F7 is the brainchild of Falcon Motorsports owner Jeff Lemke, who first revealed his project at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show in concept form. It’s one of seven F7’s built, but one is said to be destroyed, so only six remain. This is the third produced, and it was also featured on How It’s Made: Dream Cars in 2015. The vehicle looks fantastic, especially for such a small, relatively unknown small volume manufacturer.
It’s more than just a pretty face, as the Falcon F7 packs the aforementioned C6 Corvette Z06 LS7 powertrain. It’s not standard, however, and has been tuned to deliver 600 hp by Lingenfelter. This tuning still leaves it naturally aspirated, a hallmark of the high revving 7.0 liter engine we are happy to see remain. Weighing only 200 mph, Falcon estimated the F7 could hit over 200 mph flat out. The gated six speed manual shifter is also a beauty, and should be a thrill to use.
The interior is also surprisingly nice for the type of vehicle. The black and tan leather pairs nicely with the candy apple red exterior, and there’s even an iPad to take care of infotainment. Most of the other interior components are carbon fiber or bare aluminum, continuing the upscale look.
The Falcon F7 is currently going for $75,000 on Cars and Bids, and it’ll be interesting to see how close it gets to its original $250,000 asking price when new. All of the servicing is up to date from Falcon Motorsports themselves, and it should be a reliable vehicle given the reputation of the LS7 and Lingenfelter. If you’re after a unique supercar almost nobody else has, this could be for you.
