Polish supercar Arrinera Hussarya GT debuts in race form
Showcased over this past weekend at the Autosport International show in Birmingham, England, the Arrinera Hussarya GT is the racing version of the road-going supercar that's been in development in Poland for several years already.
The aero kit, developed at Warsaw's Technical University, features a flat floor, track-scraping splitter, oversized diffuser, a giant rear wing, "air curtains" around the wheel arches, and small winglets. At its heart sits a 6.2-liter V8 good for anywhere from 420 horsepower to 650, depending on specific series regulations, fed by an air scoop on the roof and driving the rear wheels through a Hewland six-speed sequential transmission. Ohlins designed a pushrod suspension for the Hussarya, which also features Alcon brakes, Bosch ABS, and Michelin rubber.
With its carbon-aluminum honeycomb construction, the entire package weighs 2,755 pounds. Arrinera plans to run the Hussarya GT in GT4-category events this year and next, while looking at series like the Pirelli World Challenge and British GT Championship. One it's up and running, privateer racing teams will be able to order theirs for £139,000 – which works out to less than $200,000 at current exchange rates, or downright bargain for a racing-spec supercar.
