As you may know, one of the super car highlights of this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was the dynamic debut of the latest version of the first Polish super car, the Arrinera Hussarya GT. In this post we take a closer look at this wonderful machine and review its specs and details.
The Polish makers of Arrinera Hussarya GT actually have a historical connection with Goodwood dating back to the days World War II. Those of you with an interest in history know that after Hitler conquered Poland a considerable number of Polish fighter pilots headed to Britain and offered their services to the Royal Air Force. These brave souls, Polish fighter squadrons 302 and 303, fought alongside British pilots in the Battle of Britain and as a result were given their own quarters RAF Westhampnett, which is now known as Goodwood Aerodrome.
With that unrelated but still glorious connection in mind, Arrinera Hussarya GT took to the Goodwood hill with all the resolve and fury of a Hawker Hurricane chasing a Luftwaffe Messerschmitt out of British skies. Boasting a carbon fiber body wrapped around a tubular spaceframe/rollcage, a 6.2 liter V8 engine, a Hewland LLS sequential gearbox with paddle shift actuation and a limited-slip differential, the Hussarya can hold its own against any modern super car.
And it looks good doing it, too, what with that low-slung body and the aero kit, not to mention the light blue paint job. The American V8 engine in the Hussarya GT is capable of producing anything between 420 and 650 bhp which is kept in check with a bespoke suspension system featuring pushrods and Ohlins 4-way adjustable dampers as well as high performance brakes with Alcon 6-pot monobloc calipers and Bosch ABS system.
