There's something deliciously bonkers about the Ariel Atom
. Even the latest Atom 3 only produces 245 horsepower from its 2.4-liter Honda
inline-four, but it still manages a 0-60 run in less than three seconds. Then Ariel
built the Atom 500 with a tiny 3.0-liter V8 packing, as the name suggests, 500 horsepower for a face-warping 2.3-second 0-60 run. Ariel achieves those figures thanks to the Atom's low curb weight. In other words, it's absolutely insane. But there are always those for whom too much is never enough.
