The R in the name definitely stands for Rebel! Because that’s what this Ariel Atom 3.5R is! You have to be very brave to step into this Ariel Atom 3.5R and floor the pedal. The car weighs only 555 kilograms and that’s very lightweight with a power of 355 hp and 355 Nm of torque! You can sprint to 100 kph in only 2.6 seconds.
When you keep the pedal floored you will soon reach the top speed of 250 kph. Within six seconds you can reach 150 kph. The Ariel Atom won’t get more crazy than this version. The 2.0 liter Honda engine is attached to a sequential gearbox which switches gears in 40 to 50 milliseconds. To keep the car on the road, Ariel mounted an enormous spoiler and Öhlins dampers. Who dares to take a ride in this car?
