Case study


Arash Motor Company has been developing and producing supercars with distinctive and individual character, since 1999. The British Arash AF8 supercar was built using composite tooling manufactured at Formaplex.
The AF8 is 90% carbon: it has a carbon hybrid monocoque chassis and the interior and sub-assemblies, including the air ducts and air-con ducts, are carbon. Arash required a trusted partner to produce cost-effective pattern tooling for the production of body panels for the AF8 supercar.
We created the pattern tooling by machining MDF block to the required geometry and sealing it with epoxy paint. For the production of the initial prototype, this solution provided the ideal balance of cost and performance, and our expertise resulted in the completion of the pioneering AF8.
