UK-based Arash Motor Company has unleashed the AF8 Cassini and AF10 supercars in Geneva, following an online reveal a couple of weeks ago.

First up, the “entry-level” AF8 is presented at the show in Switzerland in a yellow hue and packs a mighty 550-hp punch coming from a 7.0-liter V8 engine borrowed from General Motors. The unit generates a maximum torque of 476 lb-ft (645 Nm) and is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox all wrapped in a carbon fiber body. It tips the scales at a low 2,645 pounds (1,200 kg, dry) and can get to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.5 seconds before it maxes out at 196+ mph (315+ kph.)

The more interesting hybrid AF10 adopts a sinister black appearance and at least on paper is more powerful than the mighty Bugatti Chiron. According to Arash, the supercar combines a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with four electric motors to unleash a combined output of 2,080 hp (1,551 kW) and a gigantic 1,683 lb-ft (2,280 Nm.) This is possible thanks to the V8’s 900 horsepower (671 kilowatts) and 886 pound-feet (1,200 newton meters) while the electric motors push out a combined 1,180 hp (880 kW) and 797 lb-ft (1,080 Nm).

The AF10’s numbers are indeed staggering, but these are not entirely backed by the car’s performances as the quoted top speed of 201+ mph (323+ kph) is not impressive given the output figures. As for the sprint to 62 mph (100 kph), the British specialty marque says that it takes less than three seconds, but this is a little bit vague.

In terms of pricing, the AF8 Cassini begins at £350,000 and is followed by the AF10 at £1.1M while for £1.2M you can get the AF10 Racer that adds a roll cage, fire extinguisher and other goodies.
