British company, Arash have a stand here at the Geneva Motor Show 2016. The Arash AF10 is the star attraction. The AF10 was first unveiled in 2009 but never made it as far as production. Fast forward six and a half years and Arash are back. We took a closer look at what the car looks like now.
The headlines for Arash at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 are undoubtedly going to be based around the power the AF10 produces. The Arash AF10 uses a 6.2 litre V8 engine with four electronic motors. Together, the engine and motor produce 2,080 bhp and 2,280 Nm of torque. The power is transferred to the road via all four wheels. Performance is estimated at 0 to 100 km in less than 3 seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph.
The carbon reinforced plastic bodywork sits upon a carbon reinforced chassis. It has front and rear aluminium sub assemblies with double wishbone suspension systems and hydraulic lift systems. The petrol engine gets a six speed gearbox while the electric motor gets two speeds.
The Arash AF10 is also available in a “Racer” spec. The Arash AF10 Hybrid Racer gets a fire extinguisher, roll cage, intercom and a lightning bolt livery. All cars get complete carbon interiors and touch-less sat nav infotainment systems. Pricing has already been released. The standard V8 model costs from £350,000 while the Arash AF10 Hybrid costs £1,100,000 and the Arash AF10 Hybrid Racer comes in at £1,200,000.
