Ariel Atom is a street legal Race Car

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

Pure and simple… but simply insane! The Ariel Atom is a true enthusiast’s racecar. Ariel is designed by Ariel Motor Company of Great Britain and although it only costs between $40,000 and $75,000 it will give you the performance you would expect from a $1,000,000 super exotic sports car. So… if you are a true racing enthusiast and you don’t have $1,000,000 to blo on a supercar but you can afford more than a 250cc shifter cart than you might look into getting an Ariel Atom.

Ariel Atom racecar
No AC, no stereo, no leather seats, and best of all, no unnecessary weight! In fact, the Ariel Atom has a power to weight ratio that rivals most super cars. Take for example the McLaren F1 supercar that has a power to weight ratio of 4.01 to 1, the Bugatti Veyron which has a power to weight ratio or 4.35 to 1, and the Ferrari Enzo which has a power to weight ratio of .56 to 1. Compare that to the Arial atom which has a power to weight ratio of 4.10 to 1! This beautifully simple (and affordable yet rare) racecar is capable of 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds (that’s 1 full second faster than the Porsche Carrera GT, and .7 seconds faster than the Ferrari Enzo!
So… we know its fast, but how does it handle? Well, in one word “perfectly.” In fact if you watch the video below you will see just how amazing the Ariel Atom handles on the racetrack. In fact, even when matched up against a street bike the Ariel Atom posts better lap times.
Perhaps my favorite thing about the Ariel Atom is that you can buy it as a kit car for under $40,000, build it yourself and even make it street legal! Better yet the Ariel is powered by a reliable and fuel efficient supercharged Civic Type R motor.

A funny SNL skit about MySpace. Andy Samberg teaches a class for people that want to learn about myspace and how to create a myspace account (creating your profile, myspace layouts…). As it turns out most of the students are not teens. Funny but kinda scary too!
