Ariel, manufacturer’s of the worlds premier death rocket, the Atom, released details and images today of their own ‘Atom V8.’
According to Autocar this mill puts out 500 bhp giving the coming Atom V8 model a power-to-weight ratio of 1000bhp per metric ton.
The compact, quad-cammed, 75 degree V8 weighs in at a paltry 198 lbs. A a Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox mates with the Atom V8 and should propel the car to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds while 100 mph should be met in less than six. Scary.
Jeremy Clarkson’s face is currently filing for a restraining order.
