2019 Aria FXE is an American-made hypercar ready to compete with any supercar.
American motor company Aria Group unveiled 1,150-HP hybrid supercar at the 2017 LA Auto Show. With a total production run of 400 cars, 2019 Aria FXE offers a combined output rated at 1,150 horsepower and 1,316 lb-ft of torque. The new hypercar born in the U.S. and with a price starting at over $1 million will be offered in two configurations, but a lot of the details are still covered in mystery. The new hybrid with a carbon fiber monocoque and 3D-printed titanium components promises to accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.7 sec. and to reach a 210 mph top speed. Expect also a host of carbon body panels.
“The vision behind this vehicle is to build a truly world class American Mid-Engine Sports Car,” said Clive Hawkins, founder and CEO of Aria Group. “We believe enthusiasts, not only in America, but around the world are looking for a car that delivers this level of performance, built by a small manufacturer with the proven level of quality and exclusivity that Aria can deliver.”
“The first (configuration), dubbed the FE, will use a naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine. The small company hasn’t said how much power this variant will delivery but we know power will be sent through the rear wheels,” commented carscoops. “Aria has yet to choose a transmission to complement the hybrid system but Xtrac is expected to provide either a seven- or eight-speed dual-clutch automatic,” added carscoops.
According to dupontregistry, Aria Group “have patented several composite technologies, which have allowed them to make one-piece carbon fiber bodies for Singer Porsche, Ford’s GR-1 concept, and even the Kia GT4 Stinger.” 2019 Aria FXE will be powered by a mid-mounted Corvette 6.2 liter V8.
Headquartered in Irvine, California, Aria Group has produced world-leading complex projects for brands including Honda, Toyota, Tesla, Ford, GM, Disney, Paramount, Northrop Grumman and SpaceX, to name a few.
