V8 Ariel Atom

A car that can embarrass a Veyron in a straight line, almost any exotica on a track, and you if you get it wrong coming out of that slightly damp corner.

Yes, it’s the Ariel Atom 500 – 500hp of V8 grunt sandwiched in between Meccano and plastic, designed to reattach detached retinas.

2.5 seconds to 100kph is one oft-quoted statistic, but would you buy this over the slew of competent (and more practical) sports cars.

The answer is hell yeah. But only if you have GBP120,000. That’s about US$200,000, or NZ$400,000.

Might as well have his and hers versions for that meagre price! But you’d better get in quick – Ariel’s already sold 19 of the 25 bound for the UK, so demand is high.
