Ariel Atom Cup Racer Edition

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Rides

The 2012 Ariel Atom 500 V8 was one of our favorite vehicles ever introduced the automotive scene, and the brand has outdone itself once again with their new Cup Racer series.

The Ariel Atom was previously known for the closest thing to an actual race car on the streets, so it comes as no surprise that they would introduce an actual race car for the track. The Atom Cup will be a spec racing series starting in the United Kingdom next year, and the brand has improved the current vehicle for the track. The Ariel Atom doesn’t require much in the form of power upgrades, so the Honda 2.0 liter 4 cylinder motor was left mostly untouched. Meanwhile a new rollover cage, six point harness, Race Technology LCD dash display, twin master cylinders to adjust brake bias, additional protective bodywork, race-tuned suspension, and of course some Yokohama slicks have been added to the mix, ensuring that this thing is fully prepared.
