The Ariel Atom first started life as an alternative for powerful motorbikes. The idea was that older blokes who can’t buy fast bikes becasue they look ridiculous on it, will be able to have as much fun with the Atom. And it was a complete success! It will be forever remembered as one of the most fun cars of all time. But they’ve got a bit carried away recently and launched a V8 version of the car. That means 500 hp in a car that weighs 500 kg! It’s overkill. Check out this video made by Autocar to get a firmer grasp of what the Atom V8 is capable of.
