Awsome Car

Discussion in '2000 Ariel Atom' started by Atomic, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. the best part is the handling, and the fact that its so open u can see where the wheel hits the turn so u never miss an apex [jeremy clarkson]

    also looks amazing with the wing kit, looks like an F1
     
  2. It can be found when you go to the ariel website and take the link to the North American Source... kinda a roundabout way of getting it, but it was the only video link that worked for me.
     
  3. this car is amazing
     
  4. Awesome car indeed.
     
  5. This is a great investment, an extremely impressive machine, and a very fun car to drive. I'd buy one in an instant. I've heared that just about any engine that will fit can be installed by ariel.

    Ditto. British cars are fantastic. :-D

    I really want this car. ^_^

    Some info on Ariel and the Atom from the Top Gear show (best car tv show in the world of course).

    Ariel only has 7 employees.

    The engine is from a Honda Civic Type R

    Ariel supercharged it to 300 HP

    The Atom weighs 500Kg (1100 lb)
    So you get 600 HP per tonne (more than a Ferrari Enzo).

    0-60 MPH in 2.9 sec.

    In a race around the Top Gear track it beat the superbike Honda CBR 600 RR by 4 seconds, in one lap. The bike had slightly better acceleration, but under braking and around the corners the Atom was much faster, and the bike fell behind after the first corner.

    You don't have to wear a helmet.

    It doesn't have a stereo.

    It does have a boot, but it's tiny.

    The track time for one lap done by The Stig (an ex-racing driver) was 1 min 19.5 sec, placing it second on the table. Faster than the Carrera GT (1.19.8), and slower than the Ferrari Enzo (1.19.0).

    Price GBP £29,000 (US $50,000, €42,000). Certainly a lot cheaper than the Enzo.

    Jeremy Clarkson recommends that you buy the optional big brake pad if you value your life. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

  13. Dang.. only 24k? where do you get one in the U.S. ? I might put a V-6 or upgrade the I-4 not anything to big to throw the balance off and maybe dual exhausts if I could.
     
  14. why the #$%# did they put the least powerful engine up here?
