Arash AF-10

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/11/11/s...-towards-prod/









Quote:
It's been a long time coming, but the Arash AF-10 is finally here. Well, almost. Development of the latest British cottage-industry supercar is still being carried out, but after years of following the story, details and photos of the exclusive exotic have finally bubbled to the surface.

The first thing you need to know is that the AF-10 is made almost entirely of carbon fiber, from the chassis to the bodywork. Crafting a car from the time-consuming and expensive material invariably comes at a price, and the Arash is slated to sell for £320,000 ($535,000). Nestled in the lightweight frame is none other than the LS7 engine from the Corvette Z06 – all seven liters of it – tuned by Arash to produce 550 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque and driving through a six-speed Graziano gearbox.

That's just the start, though, as Arash is also said to be developing a supercharged version – spooled up in house as opposed to shoehorning in the ZR1's engine – for 800 horsepower, to be followed an even more powerful 1000-horse version. The chassis rides on a double-wishbone suspension mounted to 19-inch alloys up front and 20s in the rear, riding on Michelin Pilot rubber, with eight-piston calipers up front and six-pots in the rear gripping ventilated ceramic brake discs. With all that kit and the half-a-million-dollar price tag, we won't expect to see many out on the road, but that's just as well: Arash is apparently capping production at 70 units over the next five years.
Sexy.

You can see where the lines were borrowed from the Ferrari 430. The rear is almost identical. I wonder how the power to weight ratio stacks up with the Ferrari.

Looks more like an Enzo to me.

It's amazing how similar the designs are between the Ferraris. I thought the Enzo would have had a drastically different rear design from the rest of the fleet like the f40 and f50. But it's actually pretty similar to the f430.
