Arash Teases a New Supercar Set to be Unveiled on Februry 28
Arash, the tiny car company based in Cambridge, England that brought us the AF-10, has released some more teaser images for a new car. The photos are very misleading and don’t do much to explain the car, but we have deciphered as much as we can.
We can see in one of the shots what is clearly a carbon-fiber steering wheel, and a set of three blurred lights in the background. A few shots later, we see the three lights in succession and that leads me to believe that it is an arrangement for selecting a gear, like what Aston Martin offers. They could also be buttons for things like traction control.
There is also a shot of what appears to be a taillight with some nice milled-aluminum metalwork around it. There are also shots of the dash, which indicates 200 mph, and a shot of what looks like a seat headrest. Both the dash and seat photo feature yellow stitching.
The two strangest photos are the “yellow” one and the photo with the “gear toothing.” Based on the yellow stitching, it makes sense that the exterior of the new Arash supercar will be yellow, so I think the “yellow” photo is a close up shot of the engine cover. There is a slight chance it could be part of the front bumper, but the reflections don’t work right for that.
The “gear tooth” photo stumps me 100-percent. The black material on the right looks like it could be from a speaker, and the bolt nubs on the left make it look like it could be a wheel design.
One thing we do know is that all the waiting will end on February 28, 2014.

The first car Arash brought to market was the AF-10. This mid-engined machine is powered by a 7.0-liter, LS7 engine sourced from General Motors. It’s the same engine that powers the C6 Z06. In the Corvette this engine produces 505 Horsepower, but Arash has upped that output to 550 horsepower.
