New British Supercar from Arash has 328km/h on the cards

Arash-British-Supercar-06

It’s time to welcome a new British supercar in the shape of this, the Arash AF-10. These are the first pictures showing what the production coupe’s going to look like. And there’s certainly more than a shade of Ferrari Enzo about it, in both shape and proportions, although it’ll cost quite a bit less at around GBP320 000.

That might strike you as rather steep for a British sports car (and you thought the GBP200k Noble M600 was a pricey proposition), but compared to its Leicestershire contemporary, the AF-10 boasts a more trick structure, with carbon fibre used almost everywhere. The engine, aluminium double wishbone suspension, fuel tank and steel roll cage, are the few exceptions. The chassis design is patented to Arash, and consists of carbon fibre with an aluminium core.

Of course, being a supercar, power is equally key. The AF-10 boasts a potent 410 kW from a Corvette Z06-sourced 7,0-litre V8 engine. Torque is set to be 644 N.m, with a top speed of around 328 km/h on the cards. The car’s light weight (expected to be around 1200 kg) should ensure some fairly brisk acceleration figures. Power goes to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox.

Happily, an even madder version of Arash’s first supercar is planned. The AF-10S will add a whacking great supercharger to the ‘Vette engine, taking it to 596 kW and 749 N.m. That would mean a Bugatti Veyron-beating 504 kW/tonne!

But lets not get ahead of ourselves, the base AF-10 will be produced first. Arash Farboud, founder, creator and owner of Arash cars, first came to Brit sports car prominence helping to create the Farboud GTS, a car that has now become the Farbio GTS. Farboud established the current Arash Cars concern in March 2006, and has been working on the AF-10 since then.

    Yeah if only the average guy working the blue collar job could accord it. Then they’d be talking my language. I don’t see one bad thing about that beauty. Well except that I’m not sitting in the driver’s seat.
