    Ariel Atom 300

    Wow - had a ride in one of these at the weekend - what a car (if car is the right word). Have liked the look of these since they were launched - now I'm hardly doing any miles I started looking for a much more focused car that the Aston (have the Golf GTi for everyday). Wasn't allowed to drive - but the guy who took me out had race experience and really showed the potential performance for this, 0-60 in 2.6s on four wheels, 6" off the ground has to be felt to be believed. The moths in the wallet are getting restless....

    Nice choice - those are very cool!

    Re: Ariel Atom 300

    Would love to get a ride in one of those. How much are they going for btw?

    Re: Ariel Atom 300

    The 300BHP Atom 2 (they've just released the Atom 3) are about Pounds35k new for an unadulterated car - but most are specced over Pounds40k, and they do not seem to depreciate - the one I drove was up for Pounds42k (18months old, 1200 hard mies), (although the guys on the Atom forum thought this a little pricey) a new one (Atom 3) of same spec would be Pounds43k

    So in the UK that equates to a lightly specced Boxster S - my gf asked if it had heated seats - she was most put out when I told her it didn't even have a heater!

    Re: Ariel Atom 300

    I was looking at getting an Atom 3 in Australia as a track day car.....but wanted to drive it to the track also. But the importer STILL has not been able to reach the Aust. Design Rules requirements....so it would have to be tailered everywhere.

    In the end I decided that track days were actually getting a little boring, so I am going to race in the Porsche 944 Challenge instead.

    But would still love to have a drive in one....0-100km/h in 2.6 seconds!!!!

    We have the Atom 2 here in the states. I actually saw one on the road in Arizona when I was on vacation. I couldn't believe my eyes. Unfortunately, I didn't get to speak to him. I was probably the only one on the road that knew what it was. I've been following this car for several years now. I saw it on the cover of CAR magazine a long time ago and have been hooked ever since. They go for about $70K here in the states with all the goodies added.
    About your GF: Don't even bother taking her in it! No seat heaters If you do take her, make sure she doesn't smile while your on the highway.
