It´s been too long since we´ve had a true British supercar. Sure, Noble has been turning out some fine sports cars over the last few decades, but not since Jaguar´s XJ220 has the UK had a true monster auto.

Arash Farbound and his startup team of car wizards have developed and produced the raging Arash V8, a car that has Ferrari´s 458 and McLaren´s MP4 12C in its sights. This mid-engine fire breather has a 7.0 liter V8 that spurts to the tune of 550bhp and lays down 472 lb-ft torque from the six-cog transmission.

The result is a supercar-baiting performance of 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 200mph. The Arash AF8 ($275,000) is made from lightweight materials, so it will just love being thrown around a track.
