Exterior & Interior

The Falcon F7 design is inspired from the 1980's era of super cars, the dramatic design with flowing curves and sharp cuts to meet the demand of the wind tunnel. Many people confuse the car with a Ferrari or Lamborghini and it certainly is an attention getter.

This Falcon F7 is placed in the same segment as exotic GT cars, but it has carved its own niche with features that are seen in much more expensive handcrafted cars. These features include carbon fiber body, monocoque chassis made of carbon fiber/aluminum, handcrafted interiors, billet suspension and exceptional power-weight ratio.

The handcrafted interiors exude quality and one can't help but appreciate the attention to detail. The car is very roomy from inside, from supercar standards and can easily accommodate tall drivers.

Engine Performance

The Falcon F7 is powered by a 7-liter V8 that churns out 620 horsepower. The engine responds with a linear elasticity to give the true joy of driving. The engine has been mated to a 6-speed manual transmission based on a design by Ricardo, world's one of the most premium transmission manufacturer.

The performance of the car is exhilarating considering an extremely high power to weight ratio. The car weighs only 1.5 tons, thanks to its light weight carbon fiber body. The car can do 0-60mph sprint in 3.3-3.6 seconds and the car can attain top speed of 200 mph.

The company plans to sell 15 of these in the 1st year of production and more than 25 in the 2nd year and then slowly increasing it in the subsequent years.

  • need some more speed

  • This car screams fast and aggressive, the only problem is that its not as fast as it should be for the price you are paying.

  • Awesome…!
