Polish startup Arrinera just can’t seem to make up its mind about its first production model that has been in the development stages since 2008.
The company that started out as Veno Automotive before changing its name to Arrinera has presented several iterations of its V8-powered supercar model over the years, with the styling of the first sketches and prototypes being reminiscent of the Lamborghini Reventon.
Today we received pictures of the latest redesign and the announcement that the car will be named Hussarya. The news comes not too long after it was announced that famed British car designer Lee Noble became a member of the board, as well as a shareholder for Arrinera Automotive S.A.
As much as Arrinera would like to convince us that the nameplate is purely derived from Poland's Hussar cavalry of the 16th to 18th century, we have few doubts in our mind that many readers will automatically make an association with the Pagani Huayra.
Fresh nameplate aside, the Hussarya features a revamped exterior and interior design, though we only get to see the outside of the car for now.
Compared to the previous A.H.1 prototype, the Hussarya ditches the scissor doors and gains conventional doors, a newly designed front bumper with different air inlets, revised side panels and air vents, a reshaped roofline and rear engine compartment plus a redesigned rear end with twin round tail lamps on both sides.
Arrinera also fitted the car with two retractable spoilers positioned on the inner-top side of the rear fenders, which deploy at an angle of 50 degrees at speeds beyond 150km/h (93mph) to assist in braking.
The car is powered by a General Motors-sourced and mid-mounted 6.2-liter V8 engine tweaked to produced 650-horses, for a zero to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 340km/h (211mph).
The Polish company said that sometime between this month and September 2012, it will unveil the "33 Series", which is a special edition version of the Hussarya with distinct styling features inside and out that will be produced in a limited number of 33 units.
Arrinera said that the regular Hussarya will become available for purchase "no earlier than at the end of 2013".
