New Brit supercar heads for London
28 June 2006

Arash Cars will unveil a 550bhp concept car at the British motor show next month. The brainchild of maverick car maker Arash Farboud the AF10 has a projected price of £170,000.

The new car uses a steel and carbonfibre tub that has been designed around a 7.0-litre Corvette Z06 engine and six-speed Graziano transmission. The car will undergo extensive wind-tunnel testing with the aim of achieving a 200mph top speed.

The body is also carbonfibre, so expect a low kerbweight and 0-60mph in under four seconds. Double wishbone suspension is used on both axles.

The AF10 will be built at Arash Cars’ facility in Sawston, Cambridge.
