British supercar company Arash has released details and photos of its new model, the coming AF8, ahead of the Geneva Motor Show.

The big news for the new model is the power plant: a mid-mounted, naturally-aspirated 7.0 litre V8 producing 410kW and 640Nm, sourced from a Corvette Z06.

Power is fed to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual, which is mounted directly to the rear sub-frame.

The AF8’s body is made from carbon-fibre, and while carbon-fibre is also used on parts of the chassis, the frame is made primarily from steel.

Arash has still managed to keep the weight down to 1200kg, however, which would no doubt contribute to the AF8’s estimated 0-100km/h time of 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 320km/h.

Six-piston front and four-piston rear brake callipers take care of the stopping, with 380mm discs up front and 362mm at the rear.

Inside, the AF8 offers 42 litres of storage from its ‘boot’ (at the front, of course), a heated front windscreen and carbon interior features in a choice of colours.

There’s also a choice of colours for the exterior too, with ten paint finishes available. A special ‘Launch Edition’ will kick off the new model, available exclusively in ‘launch yellow’ and limited to just 36 units.

The 2014 Arash AF8 is the fourth model from Arash in the small company's 15-year history, following the Farboud GTS, Farboud GT and the AF10. Pricing for the AF8 in the UK is £165,000 (AU$310,000).
