The Polish supercar maker Arrinera has shown up to the Poznan Motor Show with a working example of its Hussarya supercar. The company has been involved in some controversy and it appears that this is still a pre-production model as it is marked with "Test Car" decals.
The last time we heard from Polish supercar maker Arrinera, they may or may not have been a scam, but either way, a journalist was getting sued for calling them that. But I suppose that's all water under the bridge now, because Arrinera's car, the Arrinera Hussarya, finally has a timetable for production.
Recently, an automotive journalist alleged the builder of the Polish Arrinera supercar appeared to passing off a Lamborghini replicar as its own product, possibly to work a stock-market angle for VENO S.A., an investor in the company. Today, Arrinera CEO Lukasz Tomkiewicz disputes the claim in an extensive statement.
We first mused about mused about the Polish-developed Arrinera vaporcar last year. Now, reports say the car's just a bad Lamborghini replica (wait, what?) — and perhaps the basis for a pump-and-dump scam. [UPDATE]
"Hey, did you hear about the Polish supercar?" sounds like the start of a joke that ends with the punchline "but they didn't have enough money to feed the goat." But this, apparently, is no joke. Although all we do have are a few renderings and a translation of the project Arrinera — the supercar from Poland.
