Any supercar fanatic can tell you that, with few exceptions, the best exotics come from Europe – but that usually comes down to a handful of countries like Italy, Germany and England. Every so often, though, a new supercar outfit starts up somewhere else in Europe. Like Spyker in the Netherlands, Zenvo in Denmark or Koenigsegg in Sweden. Arrinera is vying to join their ranks, and has been for some time, but this company is based in Poland.

The name first crossed our radars back in 2011, then brought chassis guru Lee Noble on board and was subsequently dismissed as little more than a reworked Lamborghini replica. But Arrinera bounced back, promising a redesign for the supercar dubbed Hussarya before it hit the market. And here it is.

Draped over the high-strength steel chassis are revised composite body panels that look largely the same as the versions we've seen until now. The lower front fascia appears more sculpted with repositioned aero elements, there are additional air vents at the corners of the windshield and in front of the doors, the mirrors have been reprofiled and the tail incorporates a deployable spoiler in place of the individual pop-up flaps. Otherwise it looks about the same as the last version we saw, but then it's pretty easy to adjust the styling on some renderings. Whether it succeeds in shaking the Lambo replicar reputation with a Pagani-esque name and such minor revisions is up to you to decide.

The formula calls for a 6.2-liter V8 sourced from GM, planted amidships, mated to a paddle-shift gearbox and propelling 650 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. Those are similar specs to the McLaren 650S, but with 100 lb-ft more torque and a good hundred fewer pounds to motivate. Yet Arrinera quotes slightly slower performance stats with a 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds and an 11-second quarter-mile. Top speed, though, is claimed to be a bit higher at 211 miles per hour. Whether it ever meets those performance targets or reaches the market – any market, really – is another matter entirely.

      There should be a rule that we don't talk about supercars until they actually, you know.. EXIST. I see a new "upcoming" supercar on AutoBlog once a week - 90% of the time, nobody ever sees or hears of it again. What's the point?

      I really like that. I never understood why "off-brand" supercars has to LOOK "off-brand". There's plenty of design talent out there who would love to work in a studio. But this looks very professionally done, it's got it's own style/character, yet very good-looking.

          This design was shown in 2013, still before Huracan. http://carsblog.pl/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/Arrinera_hussarya_.jpg http://www.arrinera.com/files/rendery/7_Arrinera_Hussarya_1920x1080_resize.jpg

      A Low-Tech Chevy engine with a cam in the block is the Heart of a Polish Hi-Tech Supercar? Does it also have a 2 speed Powerglide transmission staight from a 1955 Chevy?

        It has six speed paddle-shift gearbox.

      Again, we see a "supercar" that looks like every other supercar with GM power plant and a funny name. Everyone is trying to get their millions off the super rich with another knock off, at the expense of the supercar market. They literally look the same from the nose, to the wheels, to the angles, to the rear wing/air brake to even the badge shape. Like the badge shape will make you instantly a famous classic. None of the new kids on the block have any individuality or original thought. Next thing you know, one will pop up made in Mexico....oh...wait...It already has! This market has gotten so boring and mundane it's hard to believe. All I can say is...Meh... Seen one you've seen them all anymore...and GM power? Talk about a cop out!

        I agree - supercars look very similar today. There's significant cause of it - aerodynamics. This shape is the most aerodynamic and that's very important for manufacturers.

      It really doesn't look different enough for anyone with the money to seriously consider.

      To Cyb Okay thx for the info, , i didn't know that. Polish people are very smart and hardworking where i live in Denmark, there is a lot of polish people working, mainly in the Construction buisness, i have had help from a polish worker with a kitchen renovation, and he did a great job. they are a good people and deserve there own supercar brand. Regarding the Hussarya : I really like the look, nice job !

      Ho hum, another insanely expensive super car. I've got a suggestion. How about a few less megabuck supercars, and a few more $20-25,000 sports roadsters? You know, real sports cars that most any new car buyer can afford. So we're not all driving Miata's.

        honestly the hope that i have for a resurgence of small sports cars, is on the electric car. Small sports cars like miatas are typically driven around town and are often second cars. This means that many of the range issues of electrics are non- issues with these cars. As battery tech gets cheaper and lighter, i fully expect to see a $20k electric miata like car with monster performance and very low cost of ownership. I could love to drive an electric miata on my commute and save at the pump while doing it.

      I understand constraints due to performance and aerodynamics, but it seems like a lot of supercars look the same these days. Large side intakes, narrowing rear greenhouse, etc.

        I think you're right but on the other hand - performance of today's sports cars is so good that they can't forget about aerodynamics.
