Poland. An eastern European country that really has never delved into the world of the supercar, or any kind of car for that matter. I’ve had the pleasure of driving from Poznan to Warsaw on a mega roadtrip and was astonished by the countries natural beauty and Warsaw’s wild night life.
Enough about Poland as a country, for more go read a Lonely Planet Guide – I’m here to tell you about a proper Polish thoroughbred. Meet the Arrinera Hussarya GT a track car that can be yours, soon, for $229,000. What does that rather considerable stack of cash get you? Here are the headlines – the Hussarya is powered by an LS7 V8 engine pushing out 500bhp and is mated to a six-speed Hewland sequential racing gearbox operated by paddle shifts. It features a modular steel spaceframe chassis, bespoke pushrod suspension with Öhlins four-way adjustable dampers, Alcon brakes with 380mm discs and six-pot mono bloc calipers all round. Bosch racing ABS and traction control are standard equipment. The car is built to FIA GT3 specification. It’s mid-engied too, a real race-car.
The car has been developed and tested by a large cohort of racing drivers and engineers including BTCC champion Anthony Reid. You may recognize the car as it was the first Polish car to climb the famous hill at Goodwood and was officially unveiled at Autosport International.
Build slots are currently available for 2017 with the brand hoping to provide an alternative to amateur racers buying used racecars. Watch this space as Arrinera are looking to create a road-legal car due to hit the streets next year!
