It Cost £320,000 & it is Britain's latest edition of SuperCar. Introducing the Arash AF-10, a car made to go from 0 to 60mph in well under four seconds with maximum speed of 220mph. The heart of the AF-10 is a 7.0-litre V8 engine found in the Corvette Z06, tuned to 550bhp which is connected to a six-speed Graziano gearbox to transfer power to the wheels. Autocar reported that the six-speed sequential gearbox found in the Zonda F will also be available as an option. Triple rear diffuser and separate front wing inspired by the Yamaha OX99-11 supercar will generate immense downforce thus giving the Arash a razor sharp handling characteristics. Performance figures are help by the fact that the car only weighs 1260kg. Very few parts on the AF-10 will come from other cars, which helps to explain the price. The wheels will be 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at rear, with double-wishbones all round.Loris Bicocchi, who helped fine-tune the Bugatti Veyron, is carrying out the chassis work, which is due to start immediately.The man behind the project is Arash Farboud, who created the Farboud GTS that is now the Farbio.
