The Arrinera Hussarya is a supercar by Polish automotive manufacturer Arrinera Automotive. It is the first supercar designed and engineered in Poland.[4] It is named after Poland's Hussar cavalry.[5][6]

Prototype[edit]

The prototype of Arrinera premiered on 9 June 2011 to shareholders and investors. Some journalists gave the supercar the name "Venocara", although Arrinera Automotive company has never used this name for its supercar.[7] It featured scissor doors for both the concept car and the production car.[8]

In August 2012 Arrinera Automotive officially announced the name of its supercar as Hussarya. The name is derived from Poland’s Hussar cavalry of the 16th century.[9]

The Arrinera Hussarya 33 will be tested with a General Motors-sourced supercharged Mid-engine 6.2-litre V8 producing 800 PS (588 kW; 789 bhp). This engine based on GM's LS3 engine, and drives the rear wheels.[10][11][12]

Special editions[edit]

On 18 July 2012, it was announced that Arrinera would produce 33 units of a special "Series 33" version of the Hussarya, with exclusive designs on the exterior and the interior. [13] Regular production of this and other Hussarya models appears not to have commenced.

Controversy[edit]

In 2012 Polish radio and online journalist Jacek Balkan asserted that the vehicle was not an original supercar but a low-cost replica of a Lamborghini using parts from an Opel Corsa and an Audi A6.[14] [15] Arrinera sued Balkan for slander, but the journalist was acquitted.[16]
