The name Arrinera Hussarya comes from a combination of three words: arinzea (“streamline” in Basque), vero (“truly” in Italian) and Hussarya (the historial Polish winged cavalry, an icon of invincibility). According to Pekala, the Arrinera Hussarya GT is “a racing car of exceptional design, that will kindle strong emotions of all those passionate about fast and beautiful vehicles.”
Arrinera Hussarya GT has been designed to achieve optimal aerodynamics, for top results on racing tracks. Both the car’s body and aerodynamic parts were perfected in co-operation with Warsaw’s Technical University, under the supervision of Professor Janusz Piechna. His team was able to develop innovative technological solutions that allow for much better down-pressure to the track, with minimal loss on speed and acceleration.
The car’s aerodynamics is biased toward track racing featuring a low positioned splitter diffuser and a flat floor. Small canards (dive planes) located on the sides of front section of body increase frontdown-force and create diagonal air vortexes which, together with front “Air curtains”, minimize the influence of rotating front wheels on air flow. Arrinera Hussarya GT’s aerodynamics are further enhanced by a long diffuser located under the cars body and a back wing that generates down-force and intensifies the efficiency of the diffuser. Another striking part of the Arrinera Hussarya GT is roof scoop – a vital part of the engine intake system.
Due to its large size and location it allows a constant supply of fresh and cool air, which has a direct positive impact on the performance of the engine. It is made of carbon fibre with an additional aluminium frame for better resistance to any possible damage.
Arrinera is to be an ‘on demand’ car, with specification created according to its purchaser’s wishes. It has a centrally located V8 engine with a 6.2L capacity, generating from 420HP up to 650HP and over 580Nm till 810Nm of torque.
Arrinera’s drive is on the rear wheel. It is fitted with a Hewland LLS sequential, half-automatic, six-speed gearbox, steered via paddles located at the steering wheel. The car also has Pectel SQ6M inbuilt gearshift actuators, controlled through the steering wheel, integrated with traction control.
The Arrinera has a Cosworth ICD Pro computer – developed by Polish motorsport electronics manufacturer, Ecumaster, which enables readings and recordings of data and power distribution system.
Running Gear & Suspension
The car has a push-rod type wheel suspension which was designed specially for the Arrinera by Ohlins and is protected by copyright. It consists of two classical, triangular swingarms and regulated by shock absorber springs. The brake kit for Arrinera Hussarya GT was supplied by Alcon and consists of 380mm disc brakes and 6 piston calipers.
Wheels & tyres
The Arrinera Hussarya GT also has a sport’s ABS system supplied by Bosch. Arrinera have partnered with Michelin, therefore the car is fitted with S8H Michelin tyres installed on 18-inch Braid wheels.
Dimensions, Weight & Capacity
The designers of the car put a lot of thought into downsizing its weight. This was achieved thanks to a special BS4T45 steel used especially in motorsports cars. As a result, the racing car weights 1,250kg. With a space frame built in accordance with the FIA homologation, the whole body of Arrinera Hussarya GT is made from carbon fibre-aluminium honeycomb composite.
The price of the Arrinera Hussarya GT will start at £139,000.
Arrinera Racing Ltd. is a young, dynamic company originating from Poland. For the past few years they have been working on the development of the Arrinera Hussarya GT, Poland’s very first racing car in the GT category. Alongside the racing car, they are in the process of developing a road version of the Arrinera Hussarya for the supercar category.
