Ariel Motor Company, the folks behind the frenetic and world renowned Atom, are ready to apply their magic touch to the dune buggy.

The Ariel Nomad is an open-air, rear-wheel drive off-roader that promises to tear through terrain with a ton of ferocious energy. The vehicle is making its official debut on January 9, but we do know that it’ll feature a 2.4-liter engine with around 200 horsepower, four knobbly off-road tires, a six-speed Honda manual transmission, a reinforced underbody, a brawny brush guard, heavy-duty roll cage, two seats, and a curb weight of less than 1,600 pounds. Concerns about a 4×4 version might be addressed in the future, but for now, Ariel seems quite confident in the Nomad’s ability to wow the world in a week and a half. [Purchase]
