Not terribly much is known about the Phalcon coupe
debuted by a company called Stola that's based in the Italian town of the same name. It's powered by a BRABUS-tuned biturbo V12 from Mercedes, and reportedly 25 will be produced. The twin-turbo V12 produces 750 horsepower and just over 1,000 ft-lbs. of torque. Clearly straight line acceleration will not be a problem, though we shudder to think how the Phalcon would react to a series of slalom cones. The design is certainly striking, though we find it hard to draw much of a connection with the noble peragrine
beyond the falcon-head hood ornament. The combination of a thin track width and extremely long hood remind one of the Maybach Exelero, and the one-piece windshield that extends all the away to the back of the car is a nice touch.
