The Arash AF-8 is a limited production prototype super car based on the Farbio GTS with an estimated 25 models built annually. The AF-8 is styled along the lines of contemporary super cars like the Ford GT, Saleen S7, Ferrari Enzo FXX. It is powered by a General Motors LS7 7.0 Liter V8 from a Corvette Z06 with a supercharged version to follow 9 months after the launch of the production AF-8. The AF-8 is using the LS9 6.2 Liter V8 from the Corvette ZR-1 after the car's scheduled release in 2010. The Arash AF-8's official asking price has yet to be confirmed, but will most likely be higher than the current £173,000 AF-10.
Arash Farboud made its first step out into the market with the AF-10 back in 2009 and since then, rumors about an AF-8 model started making their way around the circuit. Not much has sprouted from the rooted rumors, but our confirmation for the super car has finally come in the form of an AF-8 scale model. This scale AF-8 - designed by Bujär Muharremi and Toby Mellor - showed up at the annual Coventry University Automotive Design degree show in UK and previews the final design of the production model scheduled to be revealed at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
The AF-8 production model will be powered by a Corvette V8 engine producing as much as 700 bhp. When it goes on sale, it will do so with a price tag of about $200,000. By comparison, the AF-10 is powered by a 7.0-liter LS7 Corvette Z06-sourced engine, which produces 550 HP and 475 lb/ft of torque and is capable of hitting a top speed of 205 mph. Recently, an AF-10 supercar was sold for an impressive $2 million .
