    Farboud is a new supercar manufacturer from England. The car has been in development for over 5 years, and they are a few weeks away from delivering their first customer car to an ex-WSB champ living in Monaco.

    I was lucky enough to be able to visit the factory recently. Here's some pics from the Farboud factory.

    There's more information at Pistonheads...Click here for their recent article on Farboud.

    Enjoy!

    Forgot to mention...apologies in advance for the cheesy captions. It's late, 3 am, and the insomnia is in full swing after only 3 hours last night!

    i remember reading about Farboud in some car magazine a while back; hot stuff... Those pictures look awesome; Faisal, you're the man... Tell him Carbon McCoy says the car looks a LOT better with the wing :D (not that it doesn't look good without it)...

    He should be in.. Seems like a lot of guys are flying in from the west coast (3 or 4)- any chance we could get them a ride? (Taek, Faisal, Byron maybe, Tim Hunold (testshootcom) etc..)

    Does that thing look a little like a Saleen S7 to anyone else?

    I didn't see any Saleen or Carrera GT, but I still liked it a lot. My wife didn't care for it though...
