The Ariel Atom reached it’s third generation. Quite similar with the previous Atom, the new model features numerous changes.

The first changes is a new diagonal side rails in the chassis and the return to a twin outlet exhaust. Also every panel on the car has been slightly modified and there is a new simple deflector option to reduce pressure on the head when driving at speed. The interior has also been modified: a new new lower seating position is being offered designed to improve comfort at speed and lower the center of gravity.

The Atom 3 features a new chassis, which has increased overall width by 60mm, enhancing elbow room in the passenger compartment by 100mm. The Atom 3 is powered by the version of Honda’s 2-liter iVTEC Type R engine. Also newly available Bilstein 10-way adjustable dampers improve the vehicle’s dynamics on-road as well as on track.

I didn’t think that they sold these here in America, but I guess they do because I saw one on the road the other day.
