(from Arash Press
Release) THE AF-10: Unique Features:AF10 features an
advanced road car aerodynamic package.
The package includes a radical front wing separated from the main
front body clam and strong air intake side pods.
These features have taken influences from Lemans racing cars and F1
cars, however perform specific functions for the overall performance
of the car. Split radiators have been used for the front and Oil
radiators have been postioned in the side pods including air
intakes. Active front and rear wings have been used to achieve an
overall impressive aeropackage for high speed stability and low
speed grip. The position of the front wing is unique to the current
car industry today and is a ‘signiture’ to the Arash Cars family.
The 7 litre GM unit has
been used for the AF10. Final power output is estimated at 550bhp at
6000rpm. The unit has been specifically chosen due to excellent
supply of parts and backup from GM Uk and its reliable emission
compliant power delivery. Servicing is minimal due to the unstressed
nature of the engine as well as ease of installation into the AF-10
Grazianno Trasmissioni have been chosen as the supplier of gearboxes
due to the reliable power handling and good supply chain for
transmissions to the UK. The transaxle unit can be found in many
high level OE cars today.
Full carbon and steel
frame chassis with steel front and rear crash structures and
cradles. The chassis has been designed with kpi angles to achieve
sports car feel but supercar presence. All wishbones are double
format and have steel tubular structures. All uprights are
internally designed to fit AP racing 6 pot carbon ceramic discs and
All carbon fibre with
honeycomb and nomex sandwiches have been used to achieve weight
reductions and built in stiffness advantages. All bodywork is hand
laid up and cured at the Arash Cars facility in Cambridge. Strict
quality control is carried out without the need for x-ray
All manufacturing of
main components will be carried out in Sawston due to such low
volumes of cars being released to the market. An estimated 25 cars
will be manufactured per year with a small number being delivered to
the US market in LHD format. Outsourcing for machining and main OE
parts will still be maintained, however a need to manufacture
chassis and body components are essential to achieve control and
