Aria is a company that says it has built high-end built high-end concept cars for automakers such as Tesla. So why not a production supercar?

The Aria FXE is making an appearance at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show. If even the concept makes it to the road as planned, watch out.


Its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 four-wheel drive hybrid engine is slated to deliver 1,150 horsepower, hit 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds and have a top speed of 210 mph.

Aria says it will deliver two variants, the FX and FXE, in 2019.

"It's inspired by track-oriented cars (but) it's made for the road," said Nicholas David, Aria's design director, who puts the planned Aria models in the rarefied company of the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1,

The price tag? Try more than $650,000 for the base FE and higher for the FXE.

David said Aria is considering making the two-seaters available through leasing when they are launched in 2019.

"We've learned that regardless of how wealthy you are, (you'd) actually prefer to lease the car," David said.

The company showed off its FE concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year and was inspired by the feedback to bring the vehicle to production.

Aria, which has about 100 employees, plans to build the cars at its Irvine plant.

David offered a few other notes about the FX and FXE, both of which will feature a carbon fiber exterior. The vehicles will have a "very American stance," with the cab sitting in the middle of the car, giving it more of a relaxed look than some European offerings.

Each car will be fully customizable, with the seats "sculpted" to the individual and a steering wheel and pedals that move toward him or her. David noted that the form of the car is key, not the lights and not the grille.
