In 1999, he established Farboud Limited and at the 2002 Autosport International show he introduced the Farboud GT.

Crafted entirely in carbon fibre composites, the Farboud's exterior was clearly inspired by the Le Mans winning Porsche. The long and low body covered a bespoke steel tubular spaceframe with carbon fibre reinforcements. Mounted amidships was an Audi sourced twin-turbo V6 engine, good for around 620 bhp. Thanks to the use of exotic materials throughout, the GT tipped the scales at only 800 kg.

The Farboud GT remained a one-off as the company set about creating the more affordable GTS, which would ultimately enter series production as the Farbio GTS and was later developed into the Ginetta G60. After selling the GTS, Farboud established the Arash Motor Company and most recently introduced the AF8 production car. Still owned by Arash Farboud, the unique GT is today on display in the entrance hall of the Arash factory.
