Arash Motor Company will showcase a new version of its Arash AF10 at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month. The model was originally launched by the British supercar maker in 2008; however the new 2016 model is essentially an all-new model.

The company has replaced the older car’s 7.0-litre pushrod V8 engine, which was sourced from the Corvette Z06, with a five-part hybrid drivetrain. The system, which is manufactured for Arash by Compact Dynamics Germany, consists of four electric motors and a petrol engine.

The petrol engine is a V8 Cruciform crankshaft unit with a compact supercharger mounted inside its V-cavity and produces as much as 900bhp. Meanwhile, each of the electric motors has an individual output of 295bhp and 27.65kgm of torque.

As a result, the AF10 has a total output of a 2,080bhp. The four-wheel-drive model can go from 0-97kph in a claimed 2.8 seconds and has a quoted top speed of 321.86kph.

The AF10 can be specified with either a manual or automatic transmission with paddleshift functionality. Each drive unit has its own gearbox; there are four two-speed units for the electric drives and a six-speeder for the petrol engine.
