A scale model manufacturer has managed to do what many before have failed at: Creating a scale model of the V-8-powered Ariel Atom 500. Stretching 134 inches from head to toe, the life-size Ariel Atom isn't exactly a big car. And, as you might expect, the scale model version won't take up a lot of real estate on your bookshelf or desk if you're...
When almost all the high-strung manual-transmission vehicles vanish in favor of semi-autonomous connected cars, the Atom may be the savior for those who love driving purity. Continue reading The American Ariel Atom 3S Reviewed: Fountain...Show More Summary

Ariel has renewed its exclusive engine supply agreement with Honda. Since 2003, Ariel has offered the Atom with Honda’s high-revving 2.0-litre K20Z4 four-cylinder engine, used in earlier iterations of the Civic Type R. In the Atom, the normally aspirated engine develops, with the help of an Ariel-tuned ECU and exhaust, 183kW in standard trim. Customers […]
Rezvani Motors certainly captured our attention with the Beast, a rebodied and reworked version of the Ariel Atom that offers ludicrous levels of performance.

The Ariel Atom is to blame. For years we ran a competition called 0-100-0, an acceleration and braking test for cars that was, as the name suggested, a sprint from rest to 100mph and back to rest again. In the earlier years, there was an unpredictability to the results. Lightweights and supercars vied for supremacy, […]

It's a 300-horsepower exotic machine with the heart of an Ariel Atom underneath it's carbon fiber skin. There are no doors, no roof, and no side or rear windows. There's also no power steering, power brakes, or traction control. To say this is our kind...
It’s been only a few months since Rezvani launched the 2016 Rezvani Beast, a 500-horsepower track toy aimed at established lightweight cars such as the 2013 Caterham Seven 620R and 2015 Ariel Atom 3S, and the American company has introduced a second version of its sports car. Show More Summary
The Ariel Atom is a super-lightweight, scaffolding-constructed, 365-horsepower turbocharged animal. I am generously described as “bookish,” and my track experience is pretty limited. But somebody decided it was a great idea to mash the two of us together, and now I think I’m in love. Read more...

You get one of two things when you combine a car and a motorcycle. Your first option is a massively heavy, chromed out two-wheeled cruiser. The other option is a four wheeled, lightweight, open-air kart with a superbike motor under the hood. Show More Summary
