Polish newcomer Arrinera has been teasing us with its first supercar since 2011. At first showcased as the Venocara Concept, it then morphed into the Hussarya, a name that pays tribute to Poland’s 17th century cavalry, the Hussars. Originally set to launch in 2013, the Hussarya has been postponed several times, while being shown with various upgrades. Now, as Arrinera said it will finally commence production in 2016, the Hussarya receives a racing version, which was showcased at the Poznan Auto Show in Poland.
Details about the race-spec Hussarya are still being kept under wraps, but it seems Arrinera plans to launch it before the much-anticipated road-legal model, which needed additional development. Last time we checked, Arrinera promised that the first units of the Hussarya 33 would show up in 2015, but these plans have since changed. Details on both the road car and the race-spec versions are still sketchy, and it seems that the final testing sessions scheduled in October 2014 might not have worked as planned.
I’ll be back with an update as soon as the Polish firm releases them. Meanwhile. let’s have a look at what may become Poland’s first track-exclusive supercar.

If you’re not familiar with Arrinera, it’s just one of those small manufacturers that came out of nowhere to build a fancy supercar of its own. The Polish brand surfaced a couple of years ago with the Venocara Concept, a Lamborghini-like study that was powered by a V-8 mill generating 650 horsepower.
The Venocara morphed into a better looking supercar about a year ago. It is known by the name of Hussarya, a moniker that pays tribute to Poland’s 17th century cavalry, the Hussars. Interestingly enough though, the Hussarya has yet to go into production. The company’s initial plan included a 2013 launch, but for some reason the supercar got delayed.
Now, after about year of complete silence, the Poles are back to announce that the Hussarya is inching closer to production, with final testing sessions to commence in October on race tracks in Poland and the United Kingdom. There’s no word as to when actual assembly will begin, but we expect for the first units to show up in 2015.
Speaking of which, the Arrinera Hussarya will step into the crowded world of supercars with a launch edition limited to only 33 examples. Arrinera is demanding €200,000 (about $272,800 as of 06/06/2014) for each car and is hoping to sell them mainly to customers in China and the Middle East. By comparison, the regular Hussarya costs €160,000 ($218,000).

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)
