Ariel Atom 3.5

Every man should drive or at least ride in this car in his life time. There is just a an insane thrill when it accelerates and it is a bundle of fun on the road. The Ariel Atom is known for being a very fun car to drive, and now with these improvements they have just modernized it a bit and given the engine a nice bump.

This crazy-fast ride still has the 2.0L 245 hp engine found in the Atom 3 but there’s now a supercharged variant with 310hp. It has projector headlamps, LED signals, a stiffer chassis and improved suspension. I especially like the modified lights, it looks clean, and I bet its a ton of fun on the road.

Ariel Atom 3 Wimmer RS

The Ariel Atom 3 is already an insane vehicle on the road, its more like a go-kart on steroids able to take any turn at high speeds, and fly in any direction. You must have the skill to control the car since its extremely light and very powerful. Wimmer RS took this machine one step further by tuning it and replacing a few parts to take it from 300 hp to 340 hp.

This machine can do wonders on the track, and now its even faster then before. Not to say that it wasn’t fast in the first place but this is just an insane amount of power. With the little boost it can do 0-62 mph (100kmh) in a shockingly fast 2.8 seconds.

A Rowdy Bunch

This was probably one of most unorganized rides I have ever had and we kept adding more and more people throughout the ride. Towards the end of our ride we were Eight Bikes and One Ariel Atom so it was quiet a high speed tour of Kuwait. We had our mix of machines and mix of riders, from the extremely well experienced to the novice so it was a learning curve for a few people.

  • 3 Ducati 1198’s (TriColore, 1198, 1198s Pearl White)
  • 1 MV Agusta 312R
  • 2 Diavel Carbons (One Red & One Black)
  • 1 KTM RC8
  • 1 BMW 1000 RR
  • 1 Ariel Atom

The weather couldn’t have been any better, sunny and slightly cold, the perfect weather to go riding. We had a route in mind but we didn’t a chance since one of the guys ran of out gas but we still had a fun time. One of our friends had a close call from a woman who cut across three lanes and almost took him out in a round about but he managed to avoid being taken out even though he still get hit. The crazy thing is that she didn’t even bother to stop on check on him, I stopped to check on him and had the urge to chase after her. The whole road was empty and she had all the road only to almost take him out. Luckily that didn’t kill our mood after we made sure everything was ok.

We are planning to be slightly more organized next week for a better ride and a lot longer. Keeping this many people on schedule is difficult as hell but when you get everyone on time its a ton of fun.

Ariel Atom 3 – Pure

There are a few track cars or race cars out there available, all ranging in price from $10’000 up to $100’000. The Ariel Atom is one of my track cars out there, its still driveable on the road and great on the track. There are those who have said that its not tuneable for the track but I love the look of the car and its pack a hell of a punch. 245 bhp with the Honda engine mated to a Honda transmission and with a supercharger option can be bumped to 300 bhp. The Ariel Atom 3 has a lot of options from track brakes, to different suspensions, aesthetics options, and aerodynamics. The base price starts at $49,000 and goes all the way up to $90,000 depending on the options that you choose. It takes off like a rocket and gets to 62 mph in less then 3 seconds, and its able to stop from 100 to 0 in 11 seconds. This is a very itense machine with lots of fun on the road, I wouldn’t mind taking one for a drive.
