The New And Improved Arash AF10 Is Coming To Geneva With 2,080 HP


Wait, how much power?!

Yes, you read that title correctly. 2,080 horsepower. We’re more than happy to tell you more. Set to be unveiled next week at Geneva is an updated version of the Arash AF10 supercar. Although not everyone may have heard of the AF10 or even Arash, the small supercar builder was first founded back in 1999 and has had its current name since 2006. The AF10 was first revealed eight years ago and it’s finally receiving numerous updates in order to keep it competitive. What’s in store?

Its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 alone pumps out 900 hp and 886 lb-ft of torque. But the secret sauce comes in the form of four electric motors which have a combined output of 1,180 hp and 797 lb-ft. Do the quick math and there’s your 2,000+ hp and 1,683 lb-ft. Arash claims the AF10 will make the sprint from 0-62 mph in under three seconds and has a top speed of 201 mph. Buyers can opt for either a six-speed manual or an optional automatic with paddle shifters. What’s more, each of the four electric motors is paired up with a two-speed gearbox, and all four are hooked up to a 32 kWh lithium-ion battery. In "Race" mode it’s automatically recharged thanks to those electric motors.
