When folks in the film or book industry try to pitch a new story they’ll often reference already popular films by saying something like “It’s Legally Blonde meets Alien“. More often than not, those types of pitches come across as lazy approximations instead of helpful reference points. That being said, one can’t think of a better way to describe Ariel’s Nomad other than a sports car meets a dune buggy.

Weighing in at just 1,430 pounds dry, this two-seater boasts a Honda-sourced 2.4 liter four cylinder engine with 230 horses and 220 pound feet of torque. Once exclusively made and sold in the UK, this beast is now hand built right here in the U.S., making it totally road legal so you can rip it up on or off the road at incredible speeds. Coming in two different models, Sport and Tactical, owners can hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.4 seconds on their way to 125, and just as easily then go take it off road for mucking around. Whether you are looking to spend your time ripping up muddy trails, hitting the asphalt, or somewhere in-between, this is a hell of a vehicle to do it in. It’ll cost you though. Prices start at $80,000. [Purchase]
