About Farbio

Arash Farboud is a British based Iranian entrepreneur. He is responsible for the development of the Farboud and Arash cars.

Biography

Arash Farboud attended St Faith's School and then The Perse School, Cambridge. He founded a company, Farboud Sports Cars making exotic British automobiles in 1998. The original car design was prompted by the refusal by Porsche GmbH to sell Arash Farboud a GT1 Road Car. The Porsche 911 GT1 had just swept to victory in the 24 hours of Le Mans, but road cars were sold by invitation only. Only five road going GT1s were made and used, ironically, mostly for racing, with one saved for the Porsche Museum. The sale of the Farboud family business, specialising in sterile medical supplies provided the funds, and the snub by Porsche provided the raison d'etre. Arash Farboud continues to be involved in the family's property, land, investments and other medical businesses. He is now not financially connected with Farboud Sports Cars, rebranded Farbio Sports Cars in 2007, but is currently working on his new range of supercars badged 'Arash Cars' including his AF10 and racing car projects. Arash is renowned for his collection of supercars from Lamborghinis to a Porsche Carrera GT featured in Evo Magazine as part of "The Incredibles" group test.

Arash explained in his blog at Lusso Magazine that he is now looking to place a deposit on a Bugatti Veyron, and is speculated to have done so already

The GT and GTS

The first Farboud, the GT, was similar in appearance to the 1996-99 Porsche 911 GT1 but powered by a twin-turbo v6 derived from the Audi S4. Porsche complained about the styling but only one vehicle was made and never sold on the open market. The Farboud GT turned up at the start of the 2005 Gumball 3000 rally in London as a star vehicle and continues to make appearances in the UK. Arash then turned his mind to a more marketable car and hired a stylist fresh out of school to help him develop a compact supercar formed around the same drivetrain.

The resulting prototype, the GTS, was a compact car with a steel tube frame, carbon fibre body panels, pushrod suspension with Öhlins dampers, and with engine power expected to be up to 580 hp on production models. The GTS was well received as a stunning looking car and expected to perform up to the promise of its appearance but had a high price tag. Link to Evo Pictures

Tips and tricks for lowering car insurance costs in Great Britain

If you’re trying to finesse the lowest price of car insurance in Great Britain, there are a few things to watch out for. Car insurance marketing is clever. Its aim is to make you feel you’re getting the best deal but to maximise the insurer’s profit at the same time.
