Quietly presented at the recent Detroit Auto Show, Mach7 Motorsports, based out of Holly, Michigan revealed the 500 hp Falcon.
With a targeted production of 15 units per year, the Falcon has an aluminum hydro-formed chassis with a carbon fiber monocoque. The "off the shelf" Corvette LS3 V8 engine producing 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) is available as the standard engine. Although, to make the Falcon a truly credible supercar Mach7 offers the GM LS9 engine with 640 hp (477 kW / 649 PS).
Mach7 provided no performance specs, as the Falcon displayed in Detroit was an unfinalized prototype, but the company (prominently known as a Viper tuner) anticipates similar numbers to the now defunct Dodge. If you'll recall, the Viper does 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in 3.4 sec, 0–100 mph (0–160 km/h) in 7.6 sec, quarter mile in 10.92 sec @ 127.79 mph (205.66 km/h) and has a top speed of 202 mph (325 km/h). With a a curb weight of 2850 lbs (1293 kg) these figures could be conservative considering the Viper with its 600 hp (447 kW / 608 PS) V10 weighed 3,460 lb (1,570 kg) in standard trim.
Pricing for the Falcon is expected hover around $200,000 according to a company representative with first deliveries beginning before the end of the year.
