This is the brand new Ariel Atom. It is called the Ariel Atom 4 because it is the fourth generation Ariel Atom, and it is the fastest version yet of one of TG’s favouritest cars.
Jul 11, 2018 · The new Ariel Atom 4 is the fastest Atom yet – Car news Atom gets Civic Type R engine, hits 0-96kph in 2. 8s.
The Ariel Atom 4 price starts at $53,000 in the U.K. It is an expensive car, but it does come with the performance figures of supercars.
Just imagine what the Ariel Atom 4 will do to your face then, because this is the fastest standard Atom yet. Powering the sports car is the same turbocharged 2.0-liter engine from the Honda Civic
Atom 4 is the fastest standard Atom produced so far. With the dramatic increase in torque, as well as 320bhp as standard, both standing start and in gear acceleration times are the fastest yet for a standard Atom: 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds, 0-100mph in 6.8 seconds retain the Atom’s giant killing performance.
The basis of the Atom 4 is a new tubular chassis, built in-house, which features larger-diameter main and diagonal tubes than previous Atoms.
Ariel says the new Atom weighs just 1,312 pounds, meaning a power-to-weight ratio of just over four pounds per horsepower. For reference, the 710-hp McLaren 720S has about the same ratio.

The New Ariel Atom Is Even More Ridiculous With Civic Type R Power. Three-hundred six horsepower from a Civic Type R engine mounted in the middle of a 1300-lb car is a great recipe.
