The Arrows FA1 was a Formula One car used by the Arrows team during the 1978 Formula One season. The car was the first ever for the Arrows Racing Team and was designed by Tony Southgate and Dave Wass.

The team was forced to withdraw the car partway through the season after a legal protest from the Shadow team, on the grounds that it was too similar to their own DN9 design; the result of the Arrows team being formed earlier in the year from a splinter group of disgruntled Shadow employees.

Knowing it would lose the case, Arrows had already designed a new car, the A1, and did not miss a race.
