A few months back we brought you news that the final specifications and pricing of Poland’s own supercar, the Arrinera, had been set. While we know what powers the car and how much it will cost, we really didn’t know what the finished product would look like.

Arrinera’s original design, it seems, was criticized for borrowing too heavily from Lamborghinis styling playbook. It’s easy to see the influence, although we’re not sure it was the copy some claimed it to be.

Now the Polish automotive site Auto Kult (via GT Spirit) has released renderings of the Arrinera’s redesign, and we have to say that we like what we see. The car is less angular from every perspective, and even the Lamborghini-style scissor doors are gone.

We can see hints of Ferrari in the design, but the new shape of the Arrinera doesn’t look like anything else. Reports are that the car is currently undergoing high-speed aerodynamic testing, with production still slated to begin in late 2012.

The Arrinera will come packing a Corvette ZR1-derived LS9 V-8 engine, with a base output of 650 horsepower and 604 pound feet of torque. More is available via performance upgrades, but even the base engine is good enough to propel the 2,900 pound car from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds.

Top speed is said to be around 211 miles per hour, although we’re not sure if the car’s new bodywork will raise or lower that number. Don’t expect the low-volume supercar to be approved for U.S. sales, but customers in Europe should be able to purchase an Arrinera starting at around $160,000.
