Remember the Arrinera? It’s the Polish super car we reported on last year from Arrinera Automotive that looks alarmingly like a Lamborghini. Perhaps even a little too much. Well, we have good news — if you happen to be a fan — it’s getting a price tag and going into production.
While we’ve been referring to Poland’s first supercar as the Arrinera, that’s not actually what it’s called. Right now, apart from the Arrinera moniker, the car has yet to be given an official name, but Polish team behind it have release some details regarding its powertrain, pricing, and availability.
One of the key components to developing a successful supercar revolves around what kind of heat it’s packing under the hood. It’s really a no-brainer: if you’re going to drop a small fortune on a car it needs to be fast. Thankfully, the Arrinera will be powered by a 6.2-liter V8, capable of producing 641 horsepower and 605 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, it’ll be able to complete a mad dash to 62 miles per hour in just a hair over three seconds (3.2 if you really want to know). Top speed for the Arrinera is said to max out at 211 miles per hour, so yeah, it’s fast.
Of course what would a supercar be without an appropriately exciting interior? Inside, the Arrinera features sports seats, a three-spoke steering wheel and a leather-wrapped dashboard. Optional upgrades include carbon fiber trim, LED ambient lighting, and navigation system.
Production for the Arrinera – or whatever it will eventually be named – is scheduled for later this year, with pricing estimated in the region of $160,000.
The bodywork features a durable steel chassis with multilink independent suspension that was designed by the supercar guru, Lee Noble of Ultima, Ascari, and Rossion fame, to name but a few. And as we mentioned before, would be just as at home rolling out of a factory in Sant’Agata Bolognese as it would in Warsaw. We’re not going to go so far as to say the Arrinera is a rip-off, because it’s not. It has plenty of distinct features to set it apart, but the similarities are evident and you’d be forgiven for thinking so.
But Italian inspiration aside, we have to give props to the Polish outfit. It’s not easy breaking into the supercar scene, a number of companies from Spain (GTA Spano), Croatia (Rimac Concept One), and of course Poland’s own Arrinera are trying their luck, but the road to success will likely be long and bumpy. We suppose if you’re going to mimic someone, best to choose from one of the best, and the Raging Bull certainly ain’t a bad choice. Who knows? It might not be too long before we see Poland rank up there with the Italians, Germans, and Brits, as some of the finest sports car makers around.
