I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Can reach 0-100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds.
The Arash AF8 Cassini is based on the Arash AF8 that was introduced in 2014 and features a tubular steel chassis with carbon fiber reinforcements. The Arash AF8 Cassini is priced from £168,000 in the UK.
It measures 4.15 metres in length, 1.9 metres in width and 1.1 metres in height. 350 body and chassis parts are made of carbon-fibre and the dry weight stands at 1,200 kg.
The front-end features a new splitter, while the rear-end is totally different with four circular LED tail lights, new diffuser, quad exhaust pipes, new central brake light and a black grille. Inside, the Arash AF8 features new carbon-fibre elements, leather trim and a touchscreen infotainment system. Customers can also opt for a stripped-out interior for track use.
The Arash AF8 Cassini is powered by the GM-sourced 7.0-litre LS7 V8 engine that develops 560 hp and 645 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. The forged aluminium wheels (front: 19-inch, rear: 20-inch) are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres (front: 235 35ZR19, rear: 345/30ZR20).
The AF8 Cassini can reach 0-100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of more than 196 mph (315 km/h).
