Since the debut of the original Ariel Atom in 1999, high-performance automotive enthusiasts have praised the spartan track weapon for its speed, handling, and overall competence. In the subsequent years to follow, the British firm has refined the street-legal racer, slowly unveiling updated iterations of the vehicle, culminating in the latest version with the 2020 Ariel Atom 4.

Shrouded in all-new bodywork, the Atom 4 is built around a new and improved, bronze-welded tubular steel chassis that’s been treated to revised suspension geometry, Bilstein dampers, a revised steering rack, and new 16 and 17” ally multi-spoked wheels. Powering the Atom 4 is a turbocharged 2.0L four-banger from the Honda Civic Type R that generates 320 horsepower and enables the 1,350lb machine to clock sub-three-second 0-60mph times and top speeds exceeding 160mph. The interior also gets all-aluminum pedals and controls, a full-color TFT display, and race seats. On top of an available carbon fiber wheel upgrade, Ariel is also offering an optional Performance Package that bumps its power output up to 350hp through a new ECU, three-stage boost controller, and a performance exhaust system.
