Arash AF-8 scale model previews production version
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.
