De Vena recently released a few design sketches of their upcoming Arrinera supercar. We revealed, back in March, that the car needed to go through a redesign process. That process is almost complete and the sketches you see in gallery below have been evaluated and the best features from each will go into the finished car. The project is now undergoing high speed aerodynamic testing.
The Arrinera Supercar is a Polish project. It will be built in a new factory located in the Southern city of Gliwice. The sketches reveal that Arrinera decided against using vertical doors, the front appears more agressive, the side has gained new air intakes and the rear features redesigned lights, a new diffuser and a sleeker rear end. Expect 3D designs at the end of the month.
We’re also told that Arrinera will release 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. Hopefully we’ll get to see a production version of the car some time in the future! Until then, let us know what you think of the new designs.
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.
