Arrinera Teases Production Supercar

When we first saw the Arrinera, the Polish supercar, it was impossible to think anything other than "Lamborghini knock-off." In fact it was so close to a Lamborghini, some Polish media outlets claimed it was a replica of a tuned Lamborghini. Arrinera denied those reports and is moving ahead with the production version of its car. Given the back story, we expect the production car to take a few steps away from Sant'Agata Bolognese in terms of styling. The first teaser pictures provide more specifics as to what we can expect.

The teaser pictures don't provide enough evidence for us to determine how "Lambo" the production Arrinera will be. The shadowy profile view shows a shape that appears quite similar to the prototype model. The other shots zero in on small areas of the car.

While it's hard to get a full picture, it is pretty clear that the Arrinera uses all kinds of carbon fiber and isn't afraid to show it. Each teaser shows body parts defined by exposed composite.

Last we heard, that carbon fiber will help keep the Arrinera's weight down to 2,900 lbs. Throw a 638-hp 6.2-liter Corvette V-8 engine into that lightweight shell and you shouldn't have much trouble reaching 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Arrinera says the car will top out at 211 mph.

Arrinera announced a price just over $160,000 in the spring. That's not a bad spec sheet for that price range, although buyers will have to be comfortable with the fact that their car looks like little more than a faux-Lambo. We're guessing they'll forget all about that when they're testing out the acceleration and top speed claims, though.

It's not clear when Arrinera will fully reveal its production car, but we reckon it won't be long.
