When it comes to no-nonsense performance cars, the Ariel Atom is among the best the industry has to offer. A track toy devoid of a conventional body, the Atom is light as a feather and faster than a Ferrari thanks to its outstanding power-to-weight ratio. Ariel Motor Company a manufacturer established in 2001 that also produces motorcycles as of 2014, has launched the production Atom in the early 2000s, with Brammo Motorsports acquiring a license to manufacture it in the U.S. in late 2005. Three different iterations of the sports car have been produced so far, with a couple of special-edition models built in the process. The third-generation Atom is as impressive as it gets, but the British aren’t resting on their laurels and their recent work has materialized in an enticing new machine. Dubbed Atom 3S, Ariel’s new sports car comes with a host of drivetrain and chassis updates, as well as minor styling updates.
