California-based design/engineering house launches its first-ever production car.
Aria has been involved in design projects with Tesla and bespoke tuners like Singer (of customized Porsche 911s fame). Now it’s turned its expertise to a hybrid, sculpted beauty unveiled at the recent L.A. Auto Show.
The 2-door, mid-engine Aria FXE can hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, with a top speed of 220 mph, thanks to a 6.2L supercharged V8 and 7 Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic w/ Manual Shift Mode.
Dual front-mounted electric motors are powered by a 10-kWh battery. Maximum power is 1150 bhp and maximum torque 1316 ft-lbs.
A carbon fiber monocoque chassis, carbon fiber body and 3D-printed metal components keep the curb weight at a low 3,450 lb. (1,565 kg).
The performance package rides on HRE forged center-lock rims, 20” on the front, and 21” on the rear.
