British supercar will top 220mph and cost £320K

The Arash AF-10, a £320,000 British supercar that will top 220mph, is ready for production.

The car will initially be fitted with a 7.0-litre V8 engine found in the Corvette Z06, tuned to 550bhp, although a more extreme incarnation is planned with a bespoke 1200bhp 7.2-litre V8.

Power will be channeled through a six-speed Graziano gearbox, although the six-speed sequential gearbox found in the Zonda F will be available as an option.

The carbonfibre chassis is being built by EPM Technology, the firm responsible for the Force India F1 car chassis.Gluing the AF-10 to the road is a triple rear diffuser and separate front wing inspired by the Yamaha OX99-11 supercar.

Weight will be kept to 1260kg, which should allow the car to get to 60mph in well under four seconds.

Very few parts on the AF-10 will come from other cars, which helps to explain the price. The wheels will be 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at rear, with double-wishbones all round.

Loris Bicocchi, who helped fine-tune the Bugatti Veyron, is carrying out the chassis work, which is due to start immediately.

The man behind the project is Arash Farboud, who created the Farboud GTS that is now the Farbio.

Today's car news is brought to you by the words:

Enzo and Ripoff.

And the number 2.

Good luck to all concerned. I'm afraid that I can't get excited by such a motoring irrelevance, though.

Can,t they do an original body and not do a near carbon copy of a Ferrari Enzo ?
