In the grand tradition of comparing cars to women, the Arrinera supercar is like your mom. Dynamic, powerful, programmed to watch your back, classy with very expensive tastes, but...sorry...still available for purchase and the ride of every man's life to Don Draper types with mad skills and fat wallets.
The Arrinera's body draws distinction from its carbon and Kevlar fiber composite sheath, its sharp, asymmetrical, back the F off side lines, its muffler housing diffusers reminiscent of jet airplane exhaust nozzles, and its fiercely crouching front end, the latter of which transcends aerodynamics under the tutelage of an 8-cylinder, 650HP engine. Basically, pigeons are going to cross oceans for the opportunity to shit on this car.
During periods of inclement weather, pitch blackness, and forgetting to pay attention, Arrinera's coup de grâce is its thermal vision camera. The camera monitors temperature up to a few hundred meters in front of the car, and if it detects a mass exceeding the ambient temperature--human, animal, bottle of Sriracha--it projects an image of whatever isn't watching where you're going bright and clear onto a display in the central console. Other BAMF elements that elevate the Arrinera from sports to supercar status:
- Excellent traction throughout the speed range.
- Brake deceleration of 1,1-1,3 g (10,79-12,75 m/s²).
- Power/weight ratio of 1,1-2,9 kg/1HP.
- 0 to 125 mph in under 10 seconds.
- 0 to 186 mph in under 30 seconds. (Nice, Mom.)
- 0 to 62 mph in under 4 second.
- From 186 mph to screeching halt in under 7 seconds. (Eh, pretty much any woman can do that.)
- Cornering g-force over 1.
- Covers 1/4 mile in under 12 seconds.
- Centrally positioned engine.
