To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Ariel Motors, the makers of the face-ripping Ariel Atom, announced a strictly limited edition tuned by Mugen. As you know Mugen is Honda’s in-house tuner and that’s relevant becasue this version of the Atom is powered by Civic Type R’s K20Z 2.0 liter 270 hp engine.
Only 10 units of this specially lightened and stiffened Atom Mugen will be made, and it’s set for unveiling at the 2011 Autosport International Motossport Show in Birmingham. The details of it are yet to be revealed, but with the original Atom being mental and the Atom V8 being insane, you may rest assured this one too will be off the hook crazy!
We wonder what’s the next step for them, an Atom V12 maybe? If only…!
