as it the original weren’t enough

Remember my post on the Ariel Atom?  Jeremy Clarkson, of Top Gear, blasting along, skin barely hanging on his face?  It looks as though the video got removed, but here’s a reminder:

Well it looks like the original 300 hp wasn’t enough as they are releasing a version with 500 hp and a 2.4 liter V8 that revs to 10,000 rpm.  The Ariel 300 did 0-60 in less than 3 seconds and 0-100 in less than 7; the 500 hp version should be much, much faster.  Additional features include a 6 speed sequential transmission, Alcon brakes, Dymag magnesium wheels and some carbon fiber accents.

I am praying that Top Gear gets a chance to test this beast.  I have a feeling there are very few street legal cars that could keep up with this (if anything).
