Arrinera introduces the Hussarya, Poland’s first-ever supercar

Polish boutique automaker Arrinera has traveled to the 2015 Poznań Auto Show (no, we did not just make up that event) to introduce a brand new coupe called Hussarya. When it goes into production later this year, the Hussarya will earn the honor of being the first supercar ever built in Poland.

Named after the most powerful Polish cavalry, the Hussarya is a thoroughly revised version of the concept that Arrinera presented in 2011. While the concept featured an oft-criticized angular design that borrowed more than its fair share of styling cues from the Lamborghini lineup, the production car gets a look of its own thanks to all-new sheetmetal that is noticeably sleeker and more aerodynamic.

The chassis is made out of a combination of carbon fiber and Kevlar, a setup that saves weight while increasing structural rigidity. Lee Noble, a respected engineer who founded the British company that bears his name, has played a tremendous role in fine-tuning the chassis in order to make sure the Hussarya drives as well as it looks.

Arrinera has upgraded the engine, too. While the concept packed a General Motors-sourced supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine rated at 650 horsepower, the production model benefits from a mid-mounted 8.2-liter mill that makes over 800 horsepower and 663 foot-pounds of torque. Power is presumably sent to the rear wheels, but Arrinera is keeping full technical details under wraps for the time being.

The 650-horsepower concept was capable of sprinting from zero to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and it could reach a top speed of 211 mph. The more powerful production model should be much quicker.

The Arrinera Hussarya will be built to order, and interested parties are now being invited to make a deposit. The startup company has not announced how much the car will cost and what countries it will be sold in.
