The car uses a steel space frame clad in a carbon-fibre body and powered by a heavily-modded 6.0-litre GM V8 with 500bhp, mated to a Hewland gearbox.
It features bespoke pushrod suspension with Öhlins four-way adjustable dampers, Alcon brakes with 380mm discs and six-pot monobloc calipers. Bosch racing ABS and traction control are standard equipment.
The car, built to FIA GT specification, is priced at US$229,000, with an obligatory spares package for an additional US$69,000. Arrinera claims to have sold two so far, and says the car will make its GT racing debut this year.
The Hussarya has been out on the Hill at FOS ahead of the Shootout in the hands of Arrinera CEO and FOS regular driver Piotr Frankowski. He told us: “The GT has true racing pedigree and offers competitive race performance with significantly lower running costs than its rivals.”
Anthony Reid, indefatigable driver and champion of the underdog, adds: “I love driving for the small firms with limited resources, and helping them develop their cars for racing.”
