Supercar Brands You’ve Probably Never Heard Of
Named after the company’s founder, Arash Farboud, Arash Motor Company is a small British manufacturer based in Suffolk, UK. The company was originally founded in 1999 as Farboud Ltd but became known as Arash in 2006. According to its website, Arash currently makes the AF8 and AF10 supercars, with three new models in development. The AF8 is the entry-level supercar, with a 550 horsepower 7.0L V8 engine that can reportedly push the car to a top speed of over 200 mph. The AF10 is considered Arash’s flagship model, with a 900-horsepower gasoline engine and four electric motors making 1,180 horsepower, for a total output of 2,080 horsepower.
Each of the five motors has its own gearbox, but despite this complicated setup, the car’s claimed performance figures are relatively standard for a modern supercar. 0-60 mph reportedly arrives in under three seconds, and the car’s top speed is simply “more than 201 mph.” That begs the question of whether Arash couldn’t have achieved the same levels of performance with a simpler setup. While Arash’s founder confirmed that a very small number of production AF8s have been sold, the AF10 has been labeled “vaporware” by Road & Track, as there is no proof that a production version has ever existed.
