English automakers Arash Motor Company, has released a new set of images featuring the Arash AF-10. The car, under development for over five years in a small Cambridge office facility, has finally been pushed through a 3D modelling programme.
The car is said to use the 550-horsepower seven-liter LS7 V8 engine from GM. For this car, the engine would crank out up to 475 ft-lb of torque. The engine would be mated to a six-speed Graziano GT-ME1 transmission.
The car would ride on custom two-piece aluminum wheels measuring 9.5x19 inches in the front, and 12.5x20 inches in the rear. They would be wrapped in Michelin Pilot tires measuring 265/35Z in front, and 335/30Z in the rear. Behind the wheels lie ventilated ceramic discs and AP Racing brake calipers (eight-piston front, six-piston rear).
To keep the weight down, the car would have a carbon fiber body with panels meshed with aluminum honeycomb. Similar materials are also used for the alleged "Formula 1" engineer-designed chassis, with a roll cage made of steel. Plastic windows are used at the back, while front and side windows are laminated glass.
There is no telling if or when this car would be made, but it would be nice to see the Arash AF-10 on the road.
