Arash AF8 Cassini To Join Hybrid Hypercar At Geneva

Is Arash’s 2,080 hp AF10 hybrid hypercar a little too much for you? Well, the company has confirmed that at next week’s Geneva Motor Show it will also unveiled the new AF8 Cassini.

The new supercar is based on the AF8 first unveiled in 2014 and includes an overhauled design but almost exactly the same underpinnings.

On a design front, the new AF8 Cassini includes an entirely new rear end that incorporates four circular taillights, a prominent rear diffuser, quad exhaust pipes, a prominent central brake light and a black grille.

At the front, the car is almost identical to the original but does include a new splitter and a bonnet with a large air extractor.

Power comes courtesy of an LS7 7.0-liter V8 engine from GM delivering 550 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque. Coupled to the engine is a six-speed manual transmission powering the rear wheels.

Underpinning the AF8 Cassini is a tubular steel chassis that incorporates elements of lightweight carbon fiber.

Prices for the Cassini start at £168,000 ($239,500).
