Originally I wanted to buy one. Can't do that right now.
but doesn't it look like a blast?

Ariel Atom test drive from BBC's Top Gear show.

The Atom is supposed to be a massive adrenaline rush due to the power to weight ratio.

Then in their wisdom they updated the beasty with an alloy V8 producing over 500BHP.. that's when it became madness.

Fun.. but madness.

Have you driven one?

I'd love to open a track, populated with these, and charge lap fees.

Another test drive :



Quivrin died in a car accident on Autoroute A13 on Sunday, 15 November 2009.[1] He had lost control of his Ariel Atom (a small but powerful open-topped, two-seater car) at the entrance of the Saint-Cloud tunnel. The speedometer was found stopped at 230 km/h (143 mph), although it is not known if he was actually driving at this speed or it was a consequence of the violent impact.[2] French television and newspapers have reported that the road was wet from rain at the time of the accident.[3]


Jocelyn Quivrin (14 February 1979 – 15 November 2009)

ME WANT!

But I don't think it'd do well on the Northern US Roads with all their potholes.

Could do well if the unsprung mass is quite low enough to compensate for the car's light body. That means special lightweight wheels and suspension system.

Thinking of making one myself for street or farm road use
