You're forgiven if you've never heard of Arash. The last time we reported on the boutique British sports car maker was in August of 2010, when it was announced that the low-slung AF-10 would get a 550-horsepower variant of the V8 used in the last-gen Chevy Corvette Z06 as a base engine. Since then, though, there's been little to no word on the company.

Now, though, a teaser has pupped up on Arash's website, showing a vague silhouette of a car with February 28, 2014 noted below it. You can see that image above. Based on the shape alone, we can safely assume the new car won't be a fuel-sipping ecomobile. Rather, that short, sloping hood and aggressive rear line indicate a mid-engine layout of some kind.

We won't speculate beyond that, but will keep our ears to the ground ahead of the debut of Arash's latest product on February 28.

      I never ever thought I'd say this, but I'm actually sick of seeing new "supercars." At least from small manufacturers that tend to produce ugly, uninspired, generic looking machines. It's almost like the market has become COMPLETELY saturated... if such a thing is possible. Zenvo, Marussia, Gumpert, Bristol, plus the never-ending list of vaporware renderings from some start-ups that get posted here every other week. Want to impress me? Make a small, affordable, fun, coupe / roadster.

        Gumpert actually made cars not just phantom renderings, even raced them. Bristol have been making and selling since 1945 so not sure how they are considered a startup.

          Where exactly did I say Bristol was a start-up?! And just because Gumpert actually produced the Apollo (and eventually the Tornante) doesn't mean they aren't part of the super/hypercar market saturation.

      It's about time we have seen a boutique car maker build a mid engine supercar with an LS. They'll have that whole niche to themselves. /s

        The fact that I was moving my mouse to "Reply" option with WTF rage before I read the "/s" on the last line means Mission: Accomplished. Haha! Well played, sir.

      Im not a big fan of homegrown super car makers that borrow engines and slap a funky super car body on them.
