Remember the Arrinera supercar? The Polish initiative in which Lee Noble has also been involved began in 2008, and eventually a prototype was unveiled last year. Now Arrinera Automotive has released the final specifications and pricing for their supercar.
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.
The chassis designed by Lee Noble will be made of variable-section high-strength steel and, as the company claims, it is extremely light while at the same time it offers exceptional deformation resistance. As an option, the car’s body, interior and floor can be made out of carbon/Kevlar composite materials. The sports car also features an all-around multilink suspension which is optimized for high speed cornering.
The cabin can be opened via upwards-opening doors. On the inside, elements will be made of high quality leather and composite materials. The car is equipped with an audio system, electric windows, electric mirrors and air conditioning. Even a night vision camera is optional.
The new supercar will be made in Poland. Pricing starts ₤ 100.000 excluding taxes, which equals € 116.740 or $ 160.060. Considering the specs and looks the Arrinera is relatively speaking a bargain. The first deliveries are expected later this year.
