We’re pleased to announce a new 116 kW (160 BHP) Honda i-VTEC powerplant for the Ariel Atom 2. Now forming the base specification for the car, performance is impressive with 300 BHP/tonne and a 0-100 km/h time of only 4.5 seconds. Constructed to customer specification in Ariel’s UK facility, the Atom 2 is now available from around $60,400* on the road making it the most scintillating drive in its price category.
If you’re seeking extreme performance, the barnstorming 164 kW (220 BHP) Civic Type-R engine remains available as an option. In this configuration the Atom 2 has almost 450 BHP/tonne available through a close-ratio six-speed gearbox, dispatching the 0-100 km/h run in a staggering 3.7s. With the launch of the new engine, the specification of the 164 kW car has been updated and is now available from around $72,800* on the road, less for a track-only vehicle.
Ariel ownership is all about the experience – whichever engine you choose, you’d be hard-pressed to have more fun than in an Atom. We’re currently taking custom vehicle orders for summer delivery so we invite you to read through the specifications, options, reviews and frequently-asked questions and to contact us to discuss your requirements.
