Ariel Atom

No windscreen, no doors, no roof: the British-made Atom is basically a road legal racing car and it is unlikely you will ever see one other than on the track. If you are a true speed demon, you will be blown away by this body-less pocket rocket, which can achieve 0-60 in a bewildering 2.7 seconds.

Unlike the rest of its supercar class, you won’t find fancy bodywork and a hi-tech dashboard on this little wonder. It doesn’t even have a radio – that would only weigh it down! Instead its 500kg mass and super light-weight chassis will make for exhilarating speed during your Ariel Atom driving experience. Featuring a two litre Honda VTEC engine which offers up 245 bhp, climb up through its six gears to a top speed of 150 mph.

The Atom is an amazing piece of engineering – function over form – with exceptional performance its top priority.

The car itself is almost as remarkable as the history of the Ariel Motor Company that makes it: a brand which started out with a penny farthing bicycle with the first patented tensioned spoke wheel in 1870. In almost a century and a half since they have progressed through a Grand Prix Racer, motorbike and the Atom. What they do, they do well. Jeremy Clarkson claimed never to have driven anything that accelerates so fast while the Mail on Sunday asked: ‘Is this the most amazing car of the century?’

The Experience

The Ariel Atom probably offers the most excitement you will get in any road car. Your Ariel Atom Driving Experience will begin with some instructor driven familiarisation laps, before progressing to a six mile drive with an expert instructor at your side. These laps ensure you get the best possible experience when behind the wheel of the Ariel Atom.

Just don’t forget to bring your earplugs!

We do advise if you are driving the Ariel Atom, long sleeves must be worn and we do recommend you to bring waterproof clothing just in case.

Ariel Atom is offered from April – October only.
