Mach7 Motorsports recently unveiled a pre-production Falcon giving America yet another option in the exotic car department. Founded by Americans Jeff and Carl Lemke, the Falcon sports good ‘ol domestic horsepower underneath the hood, with a 6.2L LS3 Chevrolet Corvette V8 powerplant pushing out around 500-hp.
Pricing is estimated to be around $200,000, but for those with even bigger wallets Mach7 will offer some additional engine options with either an LS7 or LS9 supercharged powerplant to deliver 640-hp. Combine the potent American engine with the Falcon’s full carbon fiber body and you’ve got the foundation for a seriously fast supercar.
On the outside the Falcon will also have a removable targa roof panel while a set of 20-inch Forgeline wheels adorn each corner. The vehicle definitely carries a wide stance, with a set of 335/30/20 rubber in the rear and 275/35/20 in the front.
The interior is a bit plain, but effective, sporting a pair of Venzano racing seats highlighted by a chrome and leather steering wheel. Tech toys include a Garmin navigation system, Bluetooth, iPod integration and a Bose premium sound system.
Production will be limited to just 15 Falcons a year.
