Take Farboud, Farbio and Arash, for example. Three different exotic manufacturers which only share their country of origin, right? Wrong. Arash Farboud is responsible for all three of them. He first established the Farboud brand under which he started to manufacture the GTS model, which in turn became the Farbio GTS last year, at the same time as the company name change. The supercar soap opera continues this year with the release of yet another creation (in jpeg form anyway).
The AF10 yet unborn supercar is apparently going to be manufactured under Farboud's first name, Arash. Leaving the very Ferrari Enzo-esque exterior design aside, the specifications released so far indicate a pretty potent player in the somehow “affordable” (to be read: NOT-in-the-Bugatti-Pagani-Koenigsegg league of extraordinarily expensive machines).
Powered by (what else?) a mildly tuned 7-liter V8 coming straight out of the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, the AF10 pumps out 550 HP, more than enough to propel the (allegedly) 2,600 lbs. car to over 200mph. Arash Farboud promises that a year and a half down the line, the Corvette ZR1 supercharged engine might also join the party, as well as a sequential transmission to replace the current manual made by Graziano.
The Arash AF10 is expected to cost 172,000 British pounds, which puts it exactly between Gallardo and Murcielago money. Since the car is currently only made from pixels we can't expect too much too soon, but Mr. Farboud proved “he got game” more than once.
