The British supercar brand Arash and its ambitious founder Arash Farboud have stayed off the grid for quite a while. In fact, the last time we saw something from the company was its mid-engine supercar AF8, powered by General Motors Company’s 7.0-liter LS7 V-8s, and positioned as a competitor of the Ferrari 458 Italia and McLaren 12C. Arash has now shifted its attention to the leading models – the hybrid supercars, LaFerrari and P1 - of its established rivals determined to seize them with an upgraded AF10.


Arash’s first road car 

the original AF10 was more a proof a concept than volume proposition like the AF8 that debuted soon after. Both models featured an LS7 V-8, but while the AF10’s was crafted mainly of carbon fiber, the AF8’s is a mix of carbon fiber and more conventional materials was used. Next week at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show the new AF10 will be finally introduced to the public. Its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 and four electric motors produces 900 horsepower and the thundering 886 pound-feet of torque by itself; hits 200 mph and goes 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The four electric motors positioned at each axle, provide 1,180 hp and 797 lb-ft. Supposedly, the system is capable of delivering the astounding 2,080 hp.



The car is available with either six-speed manual or six-speed automated unit with paddle shifters that deliver energy solely to the rear wheels. The electric motors and the two-speed gearbox are paired together to form an all-wheel-drive system. The 32-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that powers the electric motors recharges itself either directly from the engine or by the recovered brake energy.
A carbon fiber tub forms to the core of the chassis. Aluminum subframes are attached front and rear, along with double wishbone suspension with adjustable dampers. The car’s geared with 19-inch front and 20-in rear wheels, which wear Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires.

You can currently order the car with a starting price £1,100,000 (= $1,584,500) and if you want to invest some extra money in it, you can treat yourself with a lighter version built for racing. And even though electric-only driving is possible, no range has been officially given.
