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.
