Jeff Lemke, CEO of Falcon Motorsports, decided that supercars should be built in Michigan, and not just foreign places with exotic-sounding names, so he launched the Falcon F7, a mid-engined two-seater packing an 1100-horsepower twin-turbo V8.

The F7 has an all-carbon fiber body atop an aluminum/carbon fiber chassis that employs racecar-style pushrod suspension with Penske racing shock absorbers.

Using all these lightweight materials keeps the weight down to just 2,850 lbs., which is about the same as a new Honda Civic. But with an extra 900-plus horsepower, which Falcon says translates to a 2.7-second 0-60 mph time and a top speed of more than 200 mph.

And while foreign exotics have mostly abandoned it, the F7 retains the traditional H-pattern manual transmission so beloved by enthusiast drivers.

Falcon began hand-building F7s for customers in 2012, but thanks to its success as a boutique manufacturer, the company is growing into a new production facility where it will build a further refined car with an upgraded drivetrain and suspension, for even more stupendous performance.

You won't even have to go overseas to take delivery from the factory. Just head to Michigan, home of America's supercars.
