We love watching videos of some of the hottest sports and super cars do their thing on some of the best race tracks in the world, so when we came across a 20 minute long video of the Ariel Atom V8 and the Noble M600 in action at the most impressive race track, we had to jump on it.

Chris Harris was behind the wheel of two of the most amazing British supercars for his little trip around the Nurburgring. The two cars were borrowed from the factory, so it was even more challenging for Harris. No one wants a super car maker mad at them for wrecking borrowed cars, right? But in the end, Chris Harris described the experience as "scary as sh*t, but awesome!"

As a reminder, the Ariel Atom V8 is powered by a Hartley-built 3.0 liter V8 engine that produces 500 HP and 284 lb-ft at 7750 rpm. The Noble M600 is powered by a Volvo-sourced mid-mounted 4.4-liter V8 engine with a couple of turbochargers in it. For the M600, Noble is producing three power variants – a 450 horsepower, a 550 horsepower, and a range topping 650 horsepower with 654 lb/ft of torque.

I’m with the other commenters here. The rival is nothing compared to it.

The former was obviously more packed with dynamics. You will notice it upon its sleek performance.

Atom’s V8’s performance was astonishing, but Noble M600’s was impressively wicked. It’s probably because the latter is more powerful that’s why it looked smoother on the run.
