The first Polish supercar revealed at Autosport show, roadgoing counterpart due late 2016

Polish carmaker Arrinera has revealed the Hussarya GT at Autosport International, designed to compete in GT4 races in Great Britain and Europe.

Only two to three examples of the 430bhp GT4 racer will be produced within the next year, although a "largely similar” road-going version to homologate the Hussarya GT is due by the end of 2016. A very exclusive, higher-end model, badged Hussarya 33 is also slated for future production.

A projected top speed of 250-260kph (155-162mph) was quoted by Greg Pękala, CEO of Arrinera Racing, with a power output of 430bhp falling within the GT4 class rules.

Pękala revealed a price of £130-140,000 for the Hussarya, although the model hasn’t yet undergone testing. Pękala plans to test the car in the UK, although at this early stage he is unsure of availability or suitability of a testing location.

The car was shown at Autosport International to attract interest from prospective clients, and Pękala claims public reaction to the Arrinera Hussarya GT was encouraging. “It’s been a good reaction, but the car still needs to be proven on track to get the publicity we need,” he said.

Pękala also stressed that success of the car also depends upon its eligibility to race in its targeted series, as well as the availability of potential drivers competing behind the wheel.

According to Pękala, the roadgoing Hussarya has been in development longer than the racing Arrinera, but entering the car into the racing series was a quicker way of building awareness and publicity.

“We’re still trying to find our place in that respect,” he added.
