The Detroit show is light on supercars this year, with no Ferrari, no Lamborghini and no Aston Martin. There was however this, the Falcon Motorsports F7 – designed and built in Michigan.

The F7 is the first car produced by a company that started out making aftermarket styling kits for the Dodge Viper. It has carbonfibre bodywork and an aluminium chassis, with power coming from a mid-mounted 7-litre V8 and supplied to the rear wheels. We’re told that it has 620bhp and a kerbweight of just 1264kg – which should result in serious acceleration.

The company says it’s only sold one car so far – the one that was on the showstand – but reckons that there’s a market in America for a ‘home built sportscar in the $200k to $300k bracket.’
