Friday was February 28, 2014, and if you are a fan of boutique supercar makers, you likely remember that as the date that Arash revealed its all-new supercar . Well here it is, folks. Meet the new Arash AF8.
The car is all-new and features a design that takes some of the best parts of Arash’s previous models and blends them together into one stunning machine. Power still comes from a GM-sourced, LS7 7.0-liter V-8 that produces 550 horsepower; enough to push the AF8 to 200 mph.
Keeping all those carbon body panels together is a chassis that is built from a collection of steel, aluminum and carbon. Items like the side-impact beams are made from high-strength steel, while the roll cage system is strengthened with carbon. My favorite part is the floor, which has been made with a Kevlar-carbon composite to provide “ballistic” protection against stones and road debris.
When it comes to making your supercar sound awesome, a “ballistic protection” floor is a great place to start.
