Many of the big fancy brands steer clear of the main floor at Cobo, and all of them throw a special pre-party at MGM Grand for the region’s fancy big-spenders, called “The Gallery.” All the usual suspects were present–Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lingenfelter, Maserati, Morgan, Rolls-Royce and others. Among the most interesting of these “others” was Falcon Motorsports, a company, best known for making body modification kits for Dodge Vipers, based in Holly Michigan, just north of Detroit. On display was the first production version of the F7 concept displayed at last year’s NAIAS .
