Poland's first supercar, the Arrinera, is available to order now starting from £100,000.
It features body panels which are mostly made of carbon fibre and Kevlar, while the former is common on supercars the latter is a surprising addition rarely seen on any sort of car. These strong but lightweight materials keep the Arrinera's weight down to just 1300kg.

Power comes from a supercharged LS9 V8 engine, taken from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, and it produces 650bhp.
This lightweight body, big engine combination delivers a 0-62mph time of just 3.2 seconds and the top speed is 211mph, which easily rivals the current similar priced supercars on the market.
The Arrinera's top speed exceeds that of big supercar names like the Ferrari 458 Italia and the McLaren MP4-12C even though they cost over £150,000.
The cheaper price doesn't sound like it will cheapen the Arrinera's quality that much however, since the interior is expected to feature carbon fibre trim and a leather-wrapped dashboard, as well as optional LED ambient lightning and even a thermal camera. No full equipment list has been published however.
This all-new creation was developed in a partnership between Arrinea automotive and the veteran car designer Lee Noble.
For around thirty years Noble has worked on the development of many lightweight sports cars, for companies including Ultima and Ascari. He's best known for starting his own manufacturer, Noble Automotive in 1999, which continues to create supercars to this day.
Noble left his own company in 2008 however and has since established a similar business called Fenix Automotive.
The chassis of the Arrinera was designed by Noble himself, and the car features fully-independent multilink suspension, which will help towards a smooth ride and sharp handling.
UK customers for the Arrinera supercar will have to wait till sometime in 2013 to receive their order.
