This time, it seems to be legit.
A couple of years ago, a new automaker out of Poland, Arrinera, made some noisy announcements about an upcoming supercar, dubbed the Hussarya. This announcement was followed by widespread allegations of fraud, an elaborate scam involving parts from other cars and financial misleading of investors. Now that those hurdles have been cleared, the company says it really is ready to manufacture the model, which it has been testing in prototype form for some time now.
The Hussarya is powered by a GM V-8 6.2-liter engine making 650 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque. It delivers power to the rear wheels, and is mated to an automated-manual transmission with Italian-made Cima paddle shifters. Arrinera says the car will sprint from 0-60 in 3.2-seconds, making the quarter mile in 11 and topping out at 211mph. The chassis is built from high-strength steel and the body panels are made of composite materials, with optional Kevlar and carbon fiber. During the last reveal, pricing was set at $160,000, but expect some price-hike updates in that regard. While it looks legit this time, we're not making any down-payments just yet.
