This American supercar will have 1,150 horsepower

• https://www.usatoday.com, Eric D. Lawrence

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.
