Details of Arash AF-10 Supercar Surface

Arash AF-10 Concept
Arash AF-10 Concept
Back at the British Motor Show in 2006, Arash Farbound presented a rough concept version (pictured above) of his upcoming Arash AF10, very little was made of it due to the rush job completed on the model, however over the last two years the British company have been busy preparing the full production model and thanks to a report by Car Magazine we can bring you some of the juicy details.

The LS7 7.0-liter V8 engine from the 2006 Corvette Z06 will provide the meat to drive the AF10, it is carefully and articulately placed in the mid positiion of the carbon fiber chassis. Touch ups to the air intakes and a new exhaust raise the total power output over the 530bhp mark. Put this together with a manual gearbox supplied by Ferrari Enzo supplier Graziano and a total dry weight of just 1200kg, we can expect a model boasting awesome performance. Arash also hope to upgrade the engine to the Corvette ZR1's LS9 power unit when General Motors make it available in around 12 months time.

An initial prototype will be unveiled to the public this Autumn before full production commences next summer, pricing will be in the region of £170,000 and they will have an annual production limit of 20 vehicles

In a couple of years, Arash will also add the AF8 to its portfolio, it will be based on the same chassis as the AF10, but only the LS7 engine will be available and dimensions will come in a little lower than its larger sibling.

well there you go , folks .looks like the Enzo is freely available for whatever contorted imaginings anyone could think of . though i find it rather strange that Maranello is not pursuing this affair in court . ah , but no. this certifiable piece of British nightmare cannot be indicted at all . it must first come from either Poland or China before the BigotBrigade would spring into action and apply the full force of the prejudiced law against it.

The car and the scetch cant be the same design. Scetch looks good but the car looks like asian enzo copy.

I have only but one question: WHY? Mr Farboud maybe a dreamer, a very wealthy dreamer, but some dreams should stay strictly inside one's mind and not to be realised. Not ever.

Arash Farboud is a dreamer. His first attempt at a car saw only one produced. His second was taken over by Chris Marsh and had to be completely re-engineered before it could be relaunched as the Farbio. There is next to zero chance of this one happening. Not only does he not have a track record in producing cars, he actually has a track record in claiming he can and then failing.

NO the ugliest car in decades might as well be one of the most expensive ones the title goes to: Weber Sportcars Faster One http://www.gizmag.com/weber-sportcars-faster-one-swiss-supercar-eats-bugatti-veyrons-lunch/9264/gallery/ Now that thing is throw up fuckly. nonetheless the front end of that british supercar lost about everything in transition from sketch to model, did the designer leave or simply not understand aerodynamics to beginn with? What is up with the cross eyed look..

it does look like an enzo. cover the front bonnet of the car with your hand on the screen and look at the roof and the rear exterior design. looks like enzo a lot. this comes from an architect too so the perspective view does remind it of an ferrari enzo.

It's offical, this is now the uglist car to date. Burn the sketches, crash the concept and place the designer with cement shoes and drop him in the middle of the ocean.

Nope, does't look at all like an Enzo. Seriously, get your own ideas.
