The Arash AF10 Is A 2080bhp Hybrid Hypercar With 300mph Potential

Low-volume supercar maker Arash has revealed its new all-wheel drive AF10, which should have a top speed in the "high 200s"

Say what you want about low-volume supercar companies, they rarely lack ambition. And this latest effort from Arash - the AF10 - is certainly ambitious.

At its heart is a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 - an engine of Arash’s own design - that’s good for 900bhp. Add to that a quintuplet of electric motors, and you have a monstrous 2080bhp. Each motor has its own two-speed gearbox, while the engine can be hooked up to either a six-speed manual or paddleshift transmission.

Considering the car’s construction consists of a carbonfibre tub and carbonfibre reinforced plastic body panels, the AF10 has the potential to be enormously fast. In the press release the 0-62mph and 0-124mph times are listed as “less than” three and eight seconds respectively, while the top speed is said to be “more than 200mph”.

Naturally with 2080bhp on tap, we were curious to know just how far over 200mph. We reached out to company owner Arash Farbound, who said that “we’re certainly looking at the high 200s”, mentioning that - depending on gearing - as much as 300mph could be theoretically possible. That’s enough to make the 270mph achieved by the Hennessy Venom look rather pedestrian, if you could find a suitable place to actually test out the top whack.

Naturally, this all comes at quite a price. You’re looking at £1.1 million for the ‘standard’ AF10, and £1.2 million for the track-focused ‘Racer’ version, which includes a fire extinguisher, roll cage, intercom and various weight-saving measures. You do get a lot of exclusivity for the money, though, with Arash planning to make between five and 10 AF10s this year.

The car will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show next week.

Good luck attempting that on horrid, narrow Indonesian roads. Hell even the runway from FnF is barely enough. I’ll stick with a 510, thank you very much.

When such a small company throws around such figures, I wonder how many meters the final car can make on one tank or before bursting into flames
