The Polish Supercar Gets A Price

Polish supercar. Nope, that's not a punchline awaiting a joke. That's an actual thing that goes by the name of Arrinera. Apparently, it's not just vaporware either. The Polish supercar company has announced the price and final specs of its Lamborghini knockoff first car.

Arrinera gained some cred when it name-dropped supercar icon Lee Noble in developing its supercar (which still doesn't seem to have a model name), and it gets one step closer to actual reality with the announcement of pricing and details. When compared with other European supercars, the Arrinera could be viewed as a bargain. It will base at a rather humble $160,060.

Sure, that $160K might be a lot to risk on a derivative car from an unproven manufacturer, but you'll get a lot for that investment, at least in the short term. The Arrinera packs a tuned Corvette LS9 supercharged V-8 that reads 650 hp, 604 lb-ft of torque and 6.2 liters. It'll also get you a high tech tubular steel chassis with carbon and Kevlar body panels weighing just 2,900 lbs. That leads to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and a 211 mph top speed.

Take a look around at other cars that provide that type of performance and you're looking at more than double the $160K price tag. Of course, you're also looking at sexier cars, but you can't always have everything. Plus, the Arrinera doesn't look that bad; it's just not all that original, except perhaps for that rear-end.

Arrinera has started taking orders and plans to begin deliveries in the Europe, China, the Middle East and the US later in the year.
