The Falcon F7 is an American built-to-order sports car built by Falcon Motorsports.
The Falcon F7 debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in 2011 in concept form. Then, at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the Falcon displayed its first F7 destined for a customer's garage. The Falcon F7 uses Chevy's LS7 engine, pumping out 620 hp and 585 lb-ft of torque. The F7 uses an aluminum and carbon-fiber monocoque which lends itself to a light, 2,785-pound curb weight. Because the power-to-weight ratio is so great, the F7 rockets to 60 in the 3.3-3.6 second range and tops out between 190 and 200 mph. It has fully adjustable and independent pushrod suspension like that of an F1 car and the much more expensive Lamborghini Aventador.
The Falcon F7 starts at $195,000 but can rise to $250,000 with custom options. Falcon boasts that many of its components, like its expensive and complicated aluminum and carbon-fiber chassis, are exclusive to cars costing hundreds of thousands of dollars more. However, the F7's price places it in the crossfire of the supercar king (at the time the Falcon F7 was announced), the Ferrari 458 Italia.
The Falcon F7 has excellent stats overall. Its acceleration, handling and drifiting capabilities are superior to most other vehicles of similar rank, and it has a high nitro efficiency rating of 5/10/15. Due to the Speed Modification, the F7's actual speed at MAX+PRO is around 283 mph (456 km/h), which is lower than the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and Holden Coupe 60.
Overall, the F7 can be considered to be a Class B version of the TRION NEMESIS. Both are high-end cars in their respective classes and feature rapid acceleration and high nitro efficiency. Unlike the NEMESIS, however, the F7 is not a popular choice in Multiplayer League races as any sort of upgrade setup will put it in races with other multiplayer favourites such as the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, TVR Sagaris and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, none of which the F7 can compete with. A multiplayer-tuned Falcon mainly rivals a similarly ranked Rinspeed zaZen, Lamborghini Asterion, ONUK Sazan LM, and McLaren MP4/8. Due to its strengths, the F7 is still competitive on short and technical tracks, such as Dubai or Venice.
This is the official review of the Falcon F7 on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by HannaleinH and published on December 1, 2016:
Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: N/A
Perfect nitro duration: 10.791s
Triple nitro duration: 6.930s
French Guiana lap time: 59.994s
Final verdict: "The Falcon F7 can complete a race in French Guiana in just under one minute and is a bit slower than the Mercedes-AMG GT3. It has a good handling and has an excellent nitro duration which is good for long tracks like Tokyo and for single tanked players."
