Ariel Atom V8 Uncovered

Ariel has just released pictures of its latest creation: the Atom V8.

This will be Ariel’s most powerful car ever, with the 3.0 litre V8 producing over 475 bhp.

motoringpress.wordpress.com has moved to new motoring.com. Read this article here at Ariel Atom V8 Uncovered or visit www.newmotoring.com for more motoring news.

This means that it will a have a power to weight ratio of 909 bhp per tonne, over twice that of a Bugatti Veyron.

Ariel say that two versions of the car will be available: a 475 bhp version made for day-to-day use, and a 500 bhp race version aimed more at track use.

Either way, the insane power will allow it to get from 0-60 in around 2.3 seconds, 0-100 in less than six seconds, and up to top speeds of 170 mph and 200 mph respectively.

Only 25 cars will be built and each will cost £150,000.
