The Arash Motor Company is a small sports car manufacturer based in Newmarket, Suffolk, England. It was originally established by Arash Farboud as Farboud Limited in 1999 and changed name in 2006. The company developed the Farboud GTS in 2003 and sold the rights to Farbio, which subsequently became part of Ginetta. Arash believes that sports cars should have a distinctive and individual character. Above all they should be exhilarating to drive and to own. Arash holds these beliefs today in launching the new AF8 ensuring the history and heritage of past cars that he has built (Farboud GT, Farboud GTS and AF10) are firmly embedded in the concepts of the AF8’s evolution and to evolve Arash Motor Company’s future.

 

Models:

AF8 Cassini:

The AF8 Cassini, a beautiful design, low drag co efficiency and spectacular down force. A designer’s eye leads to innovation and thus to something timeless and leading to a future legacy. 7.0 ltr, 550 bhp and in V8 configuration. These evocative statistics produce an emotional noise through combustion. It has motorsport DNA and low weight of approximately 120kg and has a low position to provide the best prerequisites for exceptional dynamic driving performance on the road as well as race track. In designing the concept drawings of the AF8, the designers had chosen cues from the past, but have left the future open to imagination, but with hints and suggestions of evolution embedded.

 

AF10:

In 2009, Arash displayed the AF10, featuring a Chevrolet Corvette-sourced 7.0-litre V8 engine producing at least 500bhp. The car was not put into production but Arash later revealed a revised model in 2016 with a hybrid drivetrain and a horsepower claim of 2080 HP. Consists of 5 parts, 4 motors and 1 petrol engine. In total the warp drive system weighs 280kg. Each warp drive unit has it’s own gearbox, 2 speed for the electric drives and 6 speed for the petrol engine. Manual or Paddle-shift. The petrol engine is a v8 with a compact supercharger mounted inside its v cavity. No need for a large surface mounted pump – it all sits low and cools itself well with a built in charge cooler.
