Arrinera Hussarya | from £100,000.00 | www.arrinera.com
remember the Polish supercar, Arrinera? well, instead of being just known as Arrinera Supercar (which is kind of lame and uninspiring), it now has a name: the Arrinera Hussarya. in case you are wondering, Arrinera didn’t grab that exotic-sounding name off the thin air. it is taken from the 12th century Polish cavalry, the Polish Hussars, whom were known for their beauty, strength and maneuverability – traits that this 21st century supercar shares. Arrinera did not explicitly state if the Hussarya is indeed a production-ready vehicle but it does receive quite a bit of changes from the prototype which suggest this may be it. while keeping to its original dimensions, the Hussarya now has a higher ground clearance, redesigned doors that opens traditionally (yes, scissor doors are out) into a redesigned cockpit. incorporated into the Hussarya are a pair of active spoilers that doubles as additional air brake at speed beyond 150 km/h that, like the Veyron’s, turns up at 50 degrees angle when the brake is activated, thus greatly reducing its braking distance during high speed runs.
under the hood, it is still the same 650 horsepower 6.2-liter V8 unit mated to a Graziano-sourced gearbox that enables it to rocket from standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.2 seconds and on its way to a top speed of 340 km/h. adding to the excitement, Arrinera will be unveiling a limited edition Hussarya – known as the 33 Series – which will have a limited production run of just 33 units and sets itself apart from the lesser Hussarya with unique equipment, as well as ‘distinctive styling for both the interior and the body’. that will happen sometime between August and September 2012. judging from the progress to date, we’d expect the Arrinera Hussarya to hit the market sometime in 2013, or maybe even 2014. in the meantime, you can check out some imageries of the new car in the gallery after the break.
