The Arrinera Hussarya has been in the fringes of the auto world in the past couple of years and while it’s probably taken longer to build than a lot of people would’ve liked, the good news is that it’s still in development and not sent back to the heap.
But if the first Polish supercar has any plans to be recognized as a treat to the senses, it has to get past the point of being "in development" and move into becoming a dealership-ready best. Apparently, Arrinera is doing all it can to get the job done and it’s even bringing in help from a very useful source: Lee Noble.
The man responsible for the Noble brand has given his assistance to Arrinera from the very beginning and its no surprise that when the company decided to give the Hussarya a rolling chassis test, Noble was there to give it a spin.
Considering that Noble vehicles are known for their handling, it was a smart move to bring in Lee Noble to see what kind of sagely advice he can give to Arrinera so that the latter can put in into the Hussarya.
We’re still waiting for the supercar to be officially launched as a production model but the wait has been softened a little now that Lee Noble appears to be getting more and more involved in the development of this Polish hammer.

After revealing the Venocara Concept in early 2012 and teasing the market with a few sketches , Arrinera has finally dropped the first images and details on their new supercar: the Hussarya. Not to be confused with the Pagani Huayra , this new Hussarya model gets its name from the world’s most powerful and effective XVII century cavalry – the Polish Hussars.
Designing the new Hussarya supercar took about 14 months and the result is quite amazing, even if there is still a big resemblance to other supercars, like the Lamborghini Murcielago . As for its performance figures, we expect to see amazing results considering it was built in collaboration with Lee Noble - the man responsible for the Ultima GTR .
"Arrinera Hussarya was created for automobile enthusiasts with a passion for fast and beautiful cars. For enthusiasts searching for intense emotions and a massive dose of adrenaline combined with the practicality of everyday solutions. With just a little extravagance mixed in for good measure." - Lukasz Tomkiewicz (CEO)

A few weeks ago, Arrinera released a set of sketches of their new production supercar. Today, they graduated from sketches to teasers.
Yep, the Polish supercar is getting closer and closer to production, but now we have a clearer picture of its design because of these new CGI teasers. We already saw the sketches and surmised that there are some hints of Lamborghini and McLaren in the design, but now that these teaser photos have been released, they partially reveal a car that has a long profile and plenty - and we mean PLENTY - of carbon fiber details.
As for performance, the Arrinera supercar is expected to come with a 6.2-liter LS9 V8 engine that produces 650 horsepower and 605 lb/ft of torque while mated to a Graziano six-speed transmission. Those numbers translate to a 0-62 mph time of just 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 211 mph.
Finally, Arrinera is also looking at releasing a limited edition ’Series 33’ model. Details on that baby will be revealed next month. Can’t wait for the one, too.
You have to give credit to Arrinera ; the Polish supercar automaker has weathered a storm of controversy following the release of their supercar concept, the Venocara .
One of the criticisms involved the design of the supercar, which a lot of people thought looked eerily similar to the styling language of Lamborghini. Arrinera denied all those claims and to seemingly prove a point to its detractors, they decided to release the first sketches of the production model of the supercar.
To be fair, the sketch doesn’t look like a Lamborghini ; it looks like a Lamborghini AND a McLaren rolled into one.
The complete design won’t be released until at least the end of the year, but judging from the sketches, we expect nothing less than to be blow away. We’ve heard and seen about the Venocara for quite some time now and the car’s engine specs - a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine with 641 horsepower and 605 lb/ft of torque - are nothing to sleep over.
The supercar will also feature a carbon Kevlar body and a Noble -designed chassis; two qualities that aren’t exactly standard equipment in the industry. The future Arrinera supercar is also capable of hitting 0-62 mph in 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 211 mph.
Check out the sketches provided and let us know what you think of the Venocara. Does it stand a chance in vehicular court ?
Okay, so we wrote a nice review about the Arrinera Venocara supercar hailing from Poland and we make the observation that this car “looks a hell of a lot like a Lamborghini.” Apparently, the Polish media thought the same, as Jacek Balkan outright accused Arrinera of building this new supercar from a Lamborghini kit available through Polish kit car manufacturer Bojar. Later, Arrinera’s CEO Lukasz Tomkiewicz adamantly denied all accusations and even addressed the usage of an Audi A6 C5 air conditioning panel and instrument cluster.
We can admit that the resemblance between the Lambo and the Arrinera Venocara is striking, but the automotive world is chock-full of copycats and information sharing, so it may just be happenstance. We are not prepared to pass judgment until we put all three of the vehicles in question, the Lamborghini Reventon , the Bojar El Toro Kit, and the Arrinera Venocara on trial in TopSpeed court.
We will closely examine all of the evidence on each car and come to our final ruling as to whether or not this truly is a slightly modified kit car to help boost the blossoming company’s stock, or simply a case of copycatting gone too far.

For the most part, most of today’s supercars call the European continent their home. The growing trend of these high-powered machines has stretched far and wide in the continent with established countries like Germany , Italy , and the UK being joined in the supercar arms race by Sweden , Denmark, and Spain , among other countries.
Now you can add Poland to the mix.
The country best known for their polish sausages is set to introduce their very first supercar courtesy of Arrinera Automotive . The name for this Lamborghini-inspired beast hasn’t been announced yet, but Arrinera has nonetheless released a number of renderings to give us a first look on what to expect when this Polish hammer hits the streets in the future.
UPDATE 02/10/12: Arrinera has unveiled a new video that takes us behind the scenes of the official video previously unveiled. The video depicts the enormous effort made by the producer Lazniak.com as well as the Arrinera team. Hit the jump to watch the video.
UPDATE 05/02/12: Arrinera has officially released the final specs of the Venocara Supercar, as well as the pricing details for it. Find out how powerful this Polish supercar really is and how big of a hole it’s going to have on your pockets after the jump!
This review has been updated with official details of the Arrinera Supercar
Lee Noble is no neophyte in the supercar business, having already been involved in a number of exotic automotive ventures in the past. After founding Noble Supercars , Noble was one of the driving forces behind the creation of the M600 . After selling the company a few years ago, Noble went ahead and established a new South Africa-based brand: Fenix Automotive .
Now, there’s word that Noble has become involved with another start-up exotic builder, Poland’s Arrinera Automotive . The skepticism surrounding the production of Arrinera’s Venocara supercar was justified when the car was unveiled a few months ago, mostly because of a lack of substantial funds to support the entire project. But now that Noble has entered the picture - he reportedly bought a five-percent share in the company - the entire Venocara project seems to have gained some traction.
As part of the agreement, both Arrinera and Fenix are hatching an agreement to create a small group of different brands that will build and develop their own respective supercars. The first step to this collaboration will constitute Fenix selling 50 percent of the company to Arrinera sometime this year, with the end game being that all these brands will form a powerful supercar network in the future.
We don’t know how all of this will play out, but it does create a little bit of excitement to see a group of start-up companies join forces to give the old guards of the industry a serious run for their money.
