Ariel Atom V8

900BHP per ton... EPIC

Ariel’s latest offering of its stripped down and caged racer has proven to be its most ferocious yet. With its V8 custom build motor producing a magical 475BHP and ensuring 60MPH is dispatched in under 3 seconds.  475BHP doesn’t sound that much in the days of the 1000BHP Bugatti Veyron but with 900BHP per ton, that easily trumps the measly 530BHP per ton produced by Bugatti. It’s set to be a darn sight cheaper too!
