The Arash AF10 is a hybrid hypercar by Arash. First conceptualized in 2009 as a Corvette-powered supercar, it later returned in 2016 as an upgraded version, this time as a hybrid hypercar.

Description Edit

The Arash AF10 Hybrid was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It is an updated version of the 2009 version.

The new AF10 uses a Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06-sourced 6.2L (6,162 cc) V8 engine with a supercharger mounted between the heads with built-in charge cooling. The engine brings 900 hp (671 kW) and 885 ft·lb (1200 N·m) and is supplemented by four electric motors that produce a total of 1180 hp (880 kW) and 797 ft·lb (1080 N·m), bringing the total output to 2080 hp (1551 kW) and 1682 ft·lb (2280 N·m). The AF10 is all-wheel-drive, and Arash calls their hybrid drivetrain system "Warp Drive".

Arash claims that the AF10 has a top speed in excess of 201 mph (324 km/h) with the engine on or 200 mph (322 km/h) on just the electric motors. The AF10 is also claimed to have a 0-60 mph time of less than 2.9 seconds, with the run to 124 mph (200 km/h) occurring in less than 8 seconds and 186 mph (300 km/h) in less than 27 seconds. In all-electric mode, the AF10 hits 27 mph (43 km/h) in below 3 seconds and 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 4.9 seconds. On the fly, the AF10 does 50-75 mph (80-120 km/h) in just 1.8 seconds. In the Asphalt games, the AF10's 0-60 acceleration time was updated to 2.3 seconds and the top speed is now 299 mph (482 km/h), due to the car's extreme horsepower and torque figures.

The Arash AF10 Hybrid starts at £1.1 million (US$1.35 million), with the AF10 Hybrid Racer (the AF10 Hybrid with an additional racing livery) starting at £1.2 million (US$1.48 million).

Summary Edit

The Arash AF10 was added in the Championship Update as a Research & Development-unlockable car.

The Arash AF10, a high-end Class S car, is the highest-ranked car in terms of starting rank (1692) and MAX rank (1763 = +71), and the second highest MAX+PRO rank (1812 = +49), which gives it a low 120 rank increase. The AF10 has the lowest Tuning Kit bonus in the game, with only +18 points, lower than the BXR Bailey Blade GT1's +20.

Performance Edit

The Arash AF10 has decently well-rounded stats at MAX+PRO. However, the AF10's small Tuning Kit (and high starting rank) is its main downfall, causing it to be slightly slower than several similar-ranked cars in Class S, such as the Aston Martin Vulcan and Arrinera Hussarya GT.

The AF10's acceleration is inferior to the three best cars in Class S, being the Vulcan, Hussarya GT and McLaren MP4-31; also, it is much worse than the acceleration of the TRION NEMESIS and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 (from Class A). Still, the acceleration is not as bad as that of the Devel Sixteen Prototype, for example.

The AF10 possesses very sharp steering and drifting, reminiscent of the RUF CTR 3. Also, the AF10 possesses very high stability, unlike the RUF CTR 3 (which can sometimes be difficult to control).

The AF10 possesses a unique nitro efficiency of 6/12/14, with an unusually efficient level-3 nitro in comparison to the Perfect Nitro.

Usage Edit

In spite of its decent performance, it is not capable of beating the Mosler Land Shark in any track (except Tokyo Reverse being slightly faster)due to its acceleration, which is probably the main downfall of this car, despite having a displayed acceleration stat of 1.07 s, the second fastest in the game. As a result, while it may have some use in Multiplayer, it will usually fall behind the Aston Martin Vulcan, Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport should neither driver of each car make a single major mistake. The former two cars are able to out-accelerate the AF10 at the beginning of a race, for the most part; in the case of starting behind, they just need roughly 2 seconds to overtake the AF10; whereas the latter two can overtake the AF10 after about 15 seconds, although the Grand Sport has the issue of a wide drifting radius, which can be very detrimental in Sector 8.

AF10 SM Decal

In terms of TLEs, the AF10 is not very likely to reach top 500 in any track because of the interception of Vulcans, SLK 55 AMG SEs, MP4-31s, Devel Sixteen Prototypes, and SVs, and (possibly) 918 Spyders, which are usually able to take over the 1st 1000 spots in many TLEs. The Arash AF10 is used in the Simple Mobile events, with a unique livery, but this is only for US players.

In spite of its inferiority to current top end cars, the AF10 does have some niches. It does count to the Top Tier collection, and has a great deal of Car Mastery rewards, including A8Licenses 71, A8Tokens 500, and Double Credits. As stated before, it does have some Multiplayer usage; although the probability of getting podium finishes is dependent on who is in the lobby. The AF10 can also be used for farming Credits in Season 9, with its race set in Sky Drop, with a 1st-place base Credits reward of A8Credits 5,510 in an average race time of 61 seconds, making the AF10 more efficient than the ED Design Torq and McLaren P1™ GTR at this aspect. Though for farming for credits its preferable to use it's Mastery Challenge 14 which is a classic event in Sky Drop (the same location only with 8 instead of 6 racers and a faster AI) that grants a base payout of A8Credits 6,080

With the AF10's drawbacks and strengths considered, the worthiness of this car is debatable.

Price Edit

The Arash AF10 can be purchased for A8Tokens 15,000 whenever offered for a limited time. It costs A8Credits 3,399,950 or A8Tokens 23,010 to max out and A8Credits 1,770,250 for Pro Kits, which also require 23 of each Class S Parts card, 60 V8 Engines (contradicting the car's hybrid engine), 28 Mid-Tech cards, and 28 Advanced Tech cards.

Availability Edit

Following its debut in the R&D event, the Arash AF10 was made available for the aforementioned price between February 17, 2017 and February 20, 2017. Currently, the Arash AF10 is the only exclusive car from the Championship Update that hasn't been made unlockable via Blueprints yet.

The Arash AF10's Research & Development event was held on December 26, 2016, as the 17th R&D event in the game, after the McLaren M14A's Championship event. It has a total of 60 Tests spanning 4 Labs that must be cleared in 12 days once the event is started. During the Car Blueprints Update, the R&D event was revived on May 19, 2017, following the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport's Enduro Double Down event. Again during the Munich Update, the R&D event was revived on November 20, 2017, along with the Falcon F7's Enduro Double Down event.
