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

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).

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Summary

The Arash AF10 was added in the Championship Update as a Research & Development high-end Class S car with the following statistics:

Performance

The Arash AF10 has very sharp steering and drifting, similar to the RUF CTR 3, but is much more stable, making it less prone to skidding out of control when decelerating while turning a corner. With the improved car physics introduced during the Halloween Update, the AF10's stability is further enhanced, making it even more stable and safer to drive than before.

With its conversion to an ULTIMATE vehicle during the 2019 Holiday Update, the Arash AF10's Top Speed and Nitro were rebalanced in favour of the former, giving it one of the highest Top Speed ratings of any vehicle in the game, in exchange for a Nitro stat that is barely higher than the universal starting Nitro stat of all vehicles. Due to changes to the Tuning Kit bonus, the AF10 also gets a much higher boost when a Tuning Kit is applied compared to before the 2019 Holiday Update. Its handling and stability remain unchanged. These changes make the AF10 an interesting edge case when it is compared to other vehicles of a similar rank, which typically have more balanced top speed and nitro stats but have a similar Tuning Kit bonus: on less technical tracks with uneven nitro bottle distribution and fewer opportunities to perform stunts (Tokyo, Azure Coast), the AF10 is faster than almost any other car in the game due to its tremendous top speed, but on maps where nitro efficiency is less of a concern and the opportunities to perform stunts are higher, such as technical tracks (Dubai, San Diego Harbor, Rio de Janeiro, Sector 8), the AF10 is generally slower.

The Arash AF10's nitro efficiency rating is unique, with an unusually efficient level-3 nitro in comparison to the Perfect Nitro.

The Arash AF10 received a modest performance boost during the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, with its Nitro stat increased to 11.2 km/h or 7 mph, and its Acceleration stat reduced to 0.95s. These changes mean that, compared to its MAX PRO performance before the 2019 Holiday Update, the AF10 is 1.1 km/h or 0.7 mph faster. The AF10 now has a higher total speed than the 2018 McLaren X2. Despite the AF10's buffed acceleration statistic, its real acceleration is still relatively slow.

The Arash AF10 has a Top Speed of 481.6 km/h/299.1 mph, but a Nitro stat of 10.1 km/h/6.3 mph—just 0.1 km/h/0.1 mph more than the universal starting Nitro stat of all vehicles (10.0 km/h/6.2 mph). Compared to its MAX PRO performance prior to the 2019 Holiday Update, the Arash AF10 is one rank lower and 0.1 km/h/0.1 mph slower. When a Tuning Kit is applied, however, the AF10 has a total speed of 506.5 km/h/314.5 mph, which is an increase from its previous total speed of 498.7 km/h/309.7 mph. Despite this, the AF10's total speed is still lower than virtually all other high-end Class S vehicles—while it now has a higher total speed than both the Aston Martin Vulcan and Apollo Intensa Emozione, it is still slower than the 2018 McLaren X2, Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4, Lightning LS-218, and Ferrari FXX K. It also retains its inferior acceleration compared to these vehicles.

The Arash AF10 has 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. Consequently, it has a real total speed of only 309.7 mph/498.7 km/h at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, the same as its Class A "cousin", the Infiniti Vision GT, but 0.42 mph (0.68 km/h) less than the Porsche Carrera GT. The Arash AF10's acceleration is inferior to the five best cars in Class S, the AM Vulcan, Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4, Apollo Intensa Emozione, 2018 McLaren X2, and McLaren MP4-31; also, it is much worse than the acceleration of the TRION NEMESIS and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 and Rezvani Beast Alpha (from Class A). Still, the acceleration is not as slow as that of the Devel Sixteen Prototype, for example. The Arash AF10's rank often puts it in direct comparison to the Infiniti Vision GT, which is less stable and has slightly worse nitro efficiency (8/12/18 versus the AF10's 6/12/14).

Official review

This is the official review of the Arash AF10 on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by NEKON and published On January 10, 2017:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 7.392s

Perfect nitro duration: 9.027s

Triple nitro duration: 7.557s

French Guiana lap time: 55.374s

Final verdict: "Arash AF10 can make 55.374 seconds in French Guiana, it's just 0.1 seconds slower than TRION NEMESIS and 0.3 seconds faster than Fenyr Supersport. The AF10 has an advantage of nitro duration and acceleration against most S Class cars. This makes AF10 a good competitor in Multiplayer mode."

Usage

The Arash AF10 counts towards the Top Tier collection, which awards a 3-hour Tuning Kit Tuning Kit and Fusion Coins (or 4 Double Credits Double Credits and Credits 1,200,000 prior to the Fifteenth Anniversary Update) when both versions are completed.

The Arash AF10's Mastery Challenges award Fusion Coins 35,000, 2 Legendary Tech Legendary Tech, Licenses 150, and Tokens 100. With its improved Tuning Kit bonus, as well as the performance boost it received during the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the AF10 can now compete against several vehicles that used to have advantages over it.

Due to the standardisation of Car Mastery rewards, the Arash AF10's Mastery Challenges now award a Champion Kit Box Champion Kit Box, Engine Box 5 Engine Box 5, Licenses 150, and Tokens 100. The Arash AF10 can be used to farm Credits in its Season 9 race set in Sky Drop, with the same base Credits payout of Credits 5,510 for finishing first, in an average race time of 61 seconds.

Despite its decent performance, the Arash AF10's lower acceleration means that it performs worse than the Mosler Land Shark on all tracks except Tokyo Reverse, where it is slightly faster. As a result, while the AF10 may have some use in Multiplayer, it will usually fall behind the AM Vulcan, Rezvani Beast Alpha, Apollo IE, McLaren X2, Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV, Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport unless the drivers of these other vehicles make a mistake. Both the Vulcan and Beast Alpha can accelerate much faster, giving them an early lead at the start of a race, while the remaining vehicles all have a higher total speed, although the Corvette GS's wide drift radius can work in the AF10's favour on Sector 8. In terms of TLEs, the AF10 is unlikely to reach the top 500 in any event due to the high number of players using better-performing vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition for its phenomenal top speed, and the Arrinera Hussarya GT for its more balanced stats, in addition to all the other vehicles that will usually dominate the AF10 in Multiplayer. In the US, the Arash AF10 is featured in Simple Mobile events, where it is given a unique livery. The Arash AF10's Car Mastery rewards include Licenses 71, Tokens 500, and Double Credits Double Credits. Its Mastery Challenge 14, set in Sky Drop, has a base payout of Credits 6,080, while its Season 9 race, also set in Sky Drop, has a 1st-place base Credits payout of Credits 5,510 with an average race time of 61 seconds, making the AF10 more efficient than the ED Design Torq and McLaren P1™ GTR at farming Credits.

Price and Availability

As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the Arash AF10 can be purchased for Fusion Coins 7,000,000. The Arash AF10 was only obtainable from its R&D event when it was first released. Subsequently, it had a price of Tokens 15,000 whenever it was sold in the Garage during time-limited sales; this was increased to Tokens 18,750 before the AF10 was removed from the Garage during the 2019 Holiday Update for non-owners, whereupon its price was reduced to Tokens 18,000. In the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the AF10 had a price of Tokens 35,000 on sale.

Upgrades to the Arash AF10 cost Credits 4,126,000 while Pro Kits required Credits 1,375,200, 50 of each Class S Part, 92 V8 Engines, 96 Mid-Techs, and 64 Advanced Techs as of the 2019 Spring Update. With the addition of the ULTIMATE status during the 2019 Holiday Update, the AF10 no longer requires any upgrades.

The Arash AF10 was a reward for reaching Tier 25 in the Drako GTE Festival. Players who already owned the car would receive 10 1-Advanced Tech Box 1-Advanced Tech Boxes instead.
