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.
