of the Arash AF10 began in 2005 with styling sketches and renderings.
Gradually the design evolved into computer models and aerodynamic
CFD mesh models. Finally the finished car was revealed in October
Powering the Arash AF10 is a GM sourced, mid-mounted, 7.0 litre,
V8 which produces 550 bhp @ 6,000 rpm. This is connected to
a Grazianno 6-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.
This drivetrain allows the AF10 to reach 60 mph in 3.4 seconds,
and go on to a 204 mph top speed.
The Arash AF10 features a full carbon and steel frame chassis
with steel front and rear crash structures and cradles. Covering
the chassis is an all carbon
fiber body with honeycomb and nomex sandwiches to achieve
weight reductions and add rigidity.
The aerodynamic body of the Arash AF10 includes unusual features
like the radical front wing which is separated from the main
body, and prominent air intake side pods. These features have
been influences by Le Mans and F1 race cars, however they also
perform specific functions for the overall performance of the
car. Split radiators have been used at the front and Oil radiators
are positioned in the side pods.
The modular carbon chassis of the Arash AF10 is super light
and super strong. This structure is made up of 13 parts assembled
into a jig and bonded at temperature.
An estimated 25 Arash AF10 cars will be manufactured per year
with a small number being delivered to the US market in LHD
