Ariel Atom 3.5R Limited Edition
For those of you not familiar with the Ariel Atom, just think of it like a go-kart on steroids for adults. It’s a vehicle that never stops being improved upon, and this year the brand is rolling out the Ariel Atom 3.5R.
This limited edition version of the beloved sports car is more than just striking good looks, it’s an absolute beast on the asphalt. The 2-seater has been equipped with a supercharged Honda Type R 2.0-liter motor that pumps out 350 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque. Delivering that power through a Sadev six-speed sequential gear box, the 3.5R can reach 62 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds from a complete standstill. The 1,212-pound animal has also seen a slew of suspension updates which include a set of fully adjustable Ohlins TTX dampers and springs, along with 290mm vented disc brakes complete with four-pot calipers, and Kumho tires to help hug the road. Have your check book ready though, as this thing is hitting the market at roughly $135,000 USD starting next month.
