About Farboud

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 Varying Drivers License Requirements Around the World

Minimum driving ages, the number of passengers young drivers can have with them at any time, the times of day that drivers under the age of 18 can drive…

These all vary depending on where young motorists are driving. They vary, even, across the United States.

For instance, in Maine, motorists under the age of 18 aren’t allowed to have any passengers with them as they drive for the first 180 days after they obtain their licenses. In Alabama, motorists under the age of 18 can have one passenger with them.

And that’s just one example of the differences in driving license requirements from one part of the country to the next. The differences are even more pronounced when comparing one country to another. Minimum driving ages vary widely across the world. While most states in the United States allow youngsters to earn their learner’s permits at the age of 15, many other countries require their residents to be much older before they get behind the wheel of a car.
