At last month’s Poznan Auto Show in Poland, the Arrinera Hussarya debuted in running-guise for the very first time after being in the works since 2011. Now the niche automaker has revealed that the street car should reach the market in late 2016.
Notably, two variants of the Arrinera Hussarya are being developed. The first to launch will be a dedicated racing version with it tipped to be ready as early as this September. The additional development necessitated to create the street version is the main reason behind its later arrival.
Details about the racing variant remain sketchy at best but it has previously been confirmed the road car will use a GM-sourced 6.2-litre V8 engine. This powerplant delivers 641 hp and 818 Nm of torque. As a result of all this power, Arrinera claims its supercar will hit 100 km/h from a standstill in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h in 8.9 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h. These figures are very similar to the new McLaren 650S which features an identical horsepower number. That’s not the complete story however. A performance package for the Hussarya will also be made available lifting power up to 690 hp while also adding larger brakes.
Arguably more impressive than the engine is the fact that the Arrinera Hussarya rides on a special steel chassis developed by Lee Noble, the man of course behind British supercar manufacturer Noble. When equipped with the optional carbon fibre exterior package, the Arrinera Hussarya tips the scales at less than 1,300 kg.
