The current owners of the American company Falcon Motorsports are ready to part with all assets, including copyrights and technical know-how. As follows from the announcement of the sale, the company is valued at 675 thousand dollars (approximately 51 million rubles). However, the Jalopnik edition suggests that it could be a completely different property.
- Falcon Motorsport was founded in the United States at the beginning of the last decade and has produced only seven cars since then. It was founded by engineer Jeff Lemke, who set the task of building a national supercar - something like the American answer to Ferrari. The result was the Falcon F7 mid-engined coupe, first unveiled at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.
The supercar was equipped with a 7-liter Chevrolet eight-cylinder engine, which was installed on the car in various boost options, including a turbocharged one. Developed a motor from 620 to 1100 hp, and the most powerful versions of the Falcon F7 spent less than three seconds to accelerate to 100 km / h. The base cost of the supercar was 250 thousand dollars (18.9 million rubles) - thus, the entire Falcon Motorsports company is estimated less than three of its cars. It is noteworthy that the terms of the deal include one of the copies of the supercar.
- Jalopnik notes that the announcement of the sale was published on a website that specializes in the sale of commercial real estate. This circumstance, as well as some indistinctness of the text of the advertisement itself, suggests that not a whole company with technical documentation may be offered for purchase, but a certain building in which there is a car and a couple of machines.
- In early March, one of the Falcon F7s went on sale at an online auction. For a 2014 car with a base 620-horsepower engine, they eventually offered $ 122,000.
