After unveiling the AF10 four years ago, the British manufacturer Arash is
back with the AF8, an exotic sports car with a GM-sourced 7.0-liter V8 engine.
Arash claims the AF8 can hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on its way to a the top speed of around 200 mph (322 km/h).
The Arash AF8 will be present at the Geneva Motor Show next week.
AF8's Exterior Design
A short overhang front, a jet like forward position for the driver's cockpit and the large flat rear back ends suggesting that the car is wider than normal which mentally indicates where all the power is coming from. The windscreen wide and shaped at the edges suggesting motorsport. The crease at the top of the roof line suggesting flow and integrity of air over the car. A short overhang rear suggesting speed, readiness to react and pounce, all energy in the rear portion of the car with its strong side view area and large lower intake channels. Curves and clean designs intertwined, a balance of style and discipline.
The side profile has the unmistakable indication that this is Arash through the S or Z shape. This shape is carried over into the interior door cards of the car, as well as, the front and rear lights. It has become its signature and a suggestion to the future.
The AF8 has one of the largest rear tires Michelin could supply - 345 width on 20 inch wheels. Each wheel is made of forged aluminum, taking 3 days per wheel to machine and then finished in a dual paint system, polished and checked.
Finally at the back of the car is the permanently raised rear wing. All this, (without the added weight of assistance devices) is a true testament to every part considered and innovated beyond its initial idea.
