Description

American Attitude

It’s more than American muscle. It’s a pumped up super car featuring a twin-turbo engine blasting out 750 horses with 690 pounds of torque. Simply put, the AR-1’s looks, and performance, scream Attitude.

Yes the AR-1, first introduced to the auto world in 1979, is back- and it is faster, leaner, and much, much meaner than before. First shown at the New York Auto Show, and reviewed by AUTOWEEK (May 21, 1979), World Cars (1982), and many others, the all new AR-1 has maintained it’s original sculptured style while introducing a series of updated, edgier, features.

Today’s AR-1’s engine is a GM LS/3 twin turbo capable of race track speeds. The braking system has fourteen-inch front discs carrying six piston calibers, with thirteen-inch discs and four piston calibers taking up the rear. A Hydro-boost master cylinder insures that the turbos are always free to push the car to its limits.

And this street legal machine can be pushed and pounded since it sports and under carriage of hydro-formed steel, with additional 11 gauge steel in key safety areas. The low, sleek body is built as strong as the power train each panel is hand made with carefully laid sheets of fiberglass, reinforced with steel in key points. The suspension uses C5 components in both front and rear, while an air suspension system allows adjustable height and spring rate. The stunning interior is completely handcrafted with finest materials.
The AR-1 is American Attitude- Leading in style, leading in performance, and leading the super car pack.
