Arbitrage GT – a supercar with Thai roots

If you know Cobra International, the Thai company, it’s probably for the surfboards and windboards that they make. They also make carbon fiber components for cars that most of us can only dream of driving. It only makes sense, then, that they applied their expertise into building a supercar of their own. They teamed up with Alan Mertens, a Brit who works as an Aerospace engineer, raced Formula Fords and designed and built Indy cars.

Mertens and Cobra together created the Arbitrage GT. Under the hood it has a VW/Audi 3.2 liter narrow angle six tuned up by HPA Motorsports of Canada. The low slung machine with the incredibly long windshield will be produced in a limited run of up to 350, depending on demand. No word on exact price, but you can pretty much guarantee that it will have six figures.
