Ariel Atom 3


So you’ve seen the Storm Trooper, now Darth Vader has been spotted driving an all-black Ariel Atom. However, even the force probably won’t save him if he veers off the road and hits something.

After this ominous sighting, we now have concrete proof that the stories that our chubby, white-bearded forefather told us were just that: mere stories.

Unlike its predecessors, the Ariel Atom 3 features an upgraded chassis that “offers Bilstein 10-way adjustable shocks.” Video after the break. Click here for more pictures.

New diagonal side rails result in a more generous added 3.9 inches of elbow room and 2.4 inches of hiproom inside the cockpit. Exhaust now exits through dual outlets, and a wind deflector is available. Engine choices include normally aspirated and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder units, delivering up to 300 horsepower
