WELCOME TO THE NEW ARION S2 

FOLLOWING ON FROM THE SUCCESS OF THE SABRE PROJECT WE CAME UNDER HUGE PRESSURE TO DEVELOP A FRONT ENGINE CAR.

STARTING FROM SCRATCH, THE REMIT WAS SIMPLE - TAKE CLASSIC LINES AND GIVE THEM A MODERN BUT EFFICIENT TWIST WHILST UNDERNEATH IMPROVING OUTRIGHT MECHANICAL GRIP AND STABILITY.

FUNDAMENTAL TO THE PROJECT WAS THE NEED TO DO AWAY WITH THE DONOR VEHICLE SO OFTEN USED IN THESE PROJECTS, DESIGNING SPECIFIC COMPONENTS FOR THE TASK AND THUS REMOVING COMPROMISE.  TODAY THE ONLY DONOR PART ON AN ARION IS ITS HONDA FIREBLADE ENGINE.

HAVING STUCK TO OUR NOW FAMILIAR STRAPLINE OF "LIGHTER, STRONGER, FASTER"  THE RESULT IS THE ARION S2 AND WHAT A CAR IT HAS PROVED TO BE. LAUNCHED IN 2015, IT PROCEEDED TO WIN 9 OF ITS FIRST 10 RACES, SETTING 10 POLE POSITIONS AND SMASHING LAP RECORDS ALL SEASON.
