Hybrid Arash AF10 has 2080bhp, could do 300mph

What’s an Arash AF10 then?

In a world obsessed with horsepower, Arash is attempting to go straight to the top of the tree with its latest creation, the hybrid hypercar to end all hybrid hypercars.

What do I need to know?

The Arash F10 has more than twice the power of a LaFerrari, around 600bhp more than the upcoming Bugatti Chiron is expected to have and 500bhp more than that swivel-eyed lunatic, the Hennessey Venom GT.

Where does this power come from? A Chevrolet-based 6.2-litre, supercharged V8 producing 900bhp and no less than four electric motors. Together they generate a staggering 2,080bhp. Which is enough power to take over the world.

A 0-60mph time of 2.8secs is claimed, limited no doubt by the fact that the AF10 is rear-wheel-drive. With four-wheel-drive, we reckon the time would probably start with a one. Arash hasn’t made any claims about top speed, but it could well be in with a shout of claiming the title of fastest car in the world. If they can find a stretch of road long enough and the various aerodynamic aids work.

The chassis comprises a carbonfibre tub with machined aluminium subframes to support the engine and suspension.

Anything else?

An entry-level version with 550bhp will also be available, as will a ‘Racer’ package with rollcage, fire extinguisher and intercom.

How much does it cost?

The 550bhp car starts at £350,000, while the full-fate hybrid version weighs in at £1.1 million. The Racer pack adds another £100,000.

When can I buy one?

The AF10 – built in Suffolk, incidentally – will debut at the Geneva Motor Show, where Arash will presumably be taking deposits.
