2017 Arash AF10
The Arash AF10 was the first model produced after Farboud Limited changed its name to Arash Motor Company LTD. It made its public debut at the MPH Motor Show alongside other models from the likes of Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, McLaren, and Maserati, to name a few. That AF10 was powered by a 7.0-liter V-8 that was sourced from a sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and had a Graziano GT-ME1, six-speed manual transmission. The car put out 550 horsepower, 475 pound-feet of torque, and was capable of hitting 205 MPH. All told, the British supercar builder did well with this beast, but for the Geneva Auto Show this year, Arash has stepped its game up big time.
This year, Geneva marks the debut of a new Arash AF10. As far as the body goes, there are some changes, but the overall design is still recognizable as an AF10. See, the big change for the 2016 model comes in the form of available power. It still comes from the Corvette, but now it’s the updated 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 from the C7 Corvette Z06. Arash didn’t leave it alone, juicing the V-8 to 900 horsepower. Arash then added what it called the "Warp Drive." I’ll go into specifics about that later, but this hybrid powertrain that makes the old AF10 seem slow by comparison.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, I’m sure you’re as excited to read about the new AF10 as I was when I first heard the news. So, let’s take a gander and talk about the new AF10 that will debut in just a couple weeks in Geneva.
