As promised, Polish supercar upstart Arrinera revealed the final designs of their brand new supercar; the Arrinera Hussarya! The name apparently takes influence from the Polish Hussars, a Polish cavalry unit that served the Polish army between the 16th and 18th centuries. Widely recognised as the most powerful cavalry in the word, they went undefeated for 100 years. A fitting name for a supercar project then!
We’re told that since 2008, designers have been working hard on the Arrinera Hussarya aerodynamics. The past fourteen months, the car has evolved further and designers, along with experts at the Warsaw University of Technology have helped to complete development of the current design. Using wind tunnels, the design you see below has been wind tunnel tested to 360km/h.
The cockpit design has changed. Arrinera have removed the scissor doors from the prototype, created more space and raised ground clearance. Chassis dimensions remain the same, yet the Arrinera supercar gains a more muscular appearance. The car now features two spoilers, one acts as an airbrake at speeds higher than 150km/h.
The Arrinera Hussarya will be built at the SILS Centre in Gliwice, Poland under supervision of Ferrostaal Automotive GmbH based in Essen, Germany. Engineers will now move on to testing at the Applus IDIADA automotive research center in Spain with the aim of delivering the car to customers by the end of 2012. Both right and left hand drive versions will be made available.
The Arrinera will be powered by a mid-mounted 6.2 liter supercharged LS9 V8 engine which also powers the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. This engine delivers a maximum output of 650 horsepower and 820Nm torque. The engine is paired to a six-speed gearbox by Graziano.
The car weighs only 1,300kg, so the power-to-weight ratio is 2.0kg/hp. Thanks to this, the Arrinera will accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds. The 200km/h barrier is passed in 8.9 seconds and the top speed is 340km/h.
Arrinera still plan on releasing a limited edition ‘Series 33′ model featuring different exterior and interior elements. Expect details of that next month. Apparently the designs have been well received by customers.
CEO Lukasz Tomkiewicz said:
Arrinera Hussarya was created for automobile enthusiasts with a passion for fast and beautiful cars. For enthusiasts searching for intense emotions and a massive dose of adrenaline combined with the practicality of everyday solutions. With just a little extravagance mixed in for good measure.
