A Polish Supercar? No really, A Polish Supercar.

A Polish Supercar? No really, A Polish Supercar.

Despite all of the jokes that are certain to fly when the greater world gets a hold of the idea of a Polish supercar (and its Lamborghini-mirroring design), Arrinera Automotive is preparing to launch just such a vehicle. The company has released a series of renderings showing the car.

Arrinera plans to officially unveil the car in June, but until then, it's given us a pretty complete look via a series of renderings. And the look we get indicates that the car is going to essentially be a V8-powered faux-Lambo. It looks uncannily similar to the Murcielago, so much so that we swear that all they did was swap out the V12 engine for something new.

That something new is a 6.2-liter V8 engine that will get quad-lobe Eaton supercharger—sounds a lot like GM's LS9 from the Corvette ZR1. Expected output is 638 horses and 604 lb-ft. No performance estimates (or jokes) just yet.

While those numbers don't sound quite fantastic enough to forgive the painfully derivative, faux-Lambo design, a tubular steel frame and carbon-Kevlar body should help to give this car a niche all its own. The cozy interior will be outfitted in leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber trim, and will include a satellite navigation system.

Arrinera plans to unveil its supercharged coupe in June and will reportedly follow up with a convertible (i.e. Murcielago Roadster) version.

One day, we'll have a supercar from every country across the world.
