It’s been a year since the world debut of the Hussarya GT and now the Polish supercar manufacturer Arrinera is set to return to Autosport International, displaying the car that will make its racing debut in 2017. Built to FIA GT specification, the 6 litre V8 Hussarya GT turned heads when it was first unveiled at Autosport International in January 2016 and has since completed a successful year of testing at the hands of Scottish racing legend Anthony Reid.
The racing GT is powered by an LS7 V8 engine pushing out 500bhp and is mated to a six-speed Hewland sequential racing gearbox operated by paddle shifts. It features a modular steel spaceframe chassis, bespoke pushrod suspension with Öhlins four-way adjustable dampers, Alcon brakes with 380mm discs and six-pot mono bloc calipers all round. Bosch racing ABS and traction control are standard equipment.
Ahead of Arrinera’s race debut in 2017, the Hussarya has completed a 12-month test programme, driven by former BTCC star Anthony Reid. Reid is best known as a British Touring Car Championship frontrunner with Nissan and Ford during the series’ heyday in the 1990s. Now Reid, who remains as active as ever racing GTs and historics at the age of 59, has been contributing his vast experience to the test and development work of the Polish Arrinera GT.
