ARIEL ATOM 500 V8 Talk About speed!


Ariel atom 500 v8
Ariel Atom 500, powered by
a small V8 engine. With
over 500bhp in a 500kilo
package the Atom 500 will
boast one of the highest
power to weight ratios ever
for
a production car, ever.
At over 1000bhp per tonne
the Atom 500 will be the
ultimate statement in
performance and is
destined to be made in a
limited edition.
The V8 powered Atom is
the first of some exciting
developments from Ariel
due to be released though
2008 and builds on the
growing reputation that the
company has for putting the
passion
back into driving
and producing cars that are
fun to
drive as well as fast
both on and off the track.
The 500 started life as a
one off special project with
RS Developments in 2007
and features the Russell
Savory designed 2.4 litre
V8 engine coupled to a 6
speed sequential Sadev
gearbox. Developing over
500bhp at 10,000rpm the
supercharged engine
features all alloy
construction, 5 valves per
cylinder and a dry sump.
The gearbox will have
flatshift capability, a paddle
gearchange with manual
override as well as launch
and traction controls.
Recognisable by the twin
rear intakes for
intercoolers the Atom 500
will feature a unique colour
scheme for chassis, wheels
and bodywork combined
with carbon fibre panels
and carbon fibre aerofoils.
Other features will include
chromemoly aerofoil
wishbones, integrated
function steering wheel,
Alcon 4 pot caliper brakes
and Dymag magnesium
wheels.
Said Simon Saunders,
Director of Ariel, ‘This is an
interesting project for us
and an experimental
departure from what we
normally produce. For a few
customers the Atom 500 will
be the ultimate expression
of lightweight performance
and represents the outer
limits of what is achievable
in a road registered car.
We also use this sort of
project to explore the
possibilities of how we can
improve our standard cars.
The Honda engined
production cars already
combine all the elements
that we want in an Atom and
by pushing
the envelope to
these sorts of extremes we
can
further improve the
breed’.
The Atom 500 will be
produced in Somerset at
the new Ariel factory with
the first car available from
Spring this year. Prices
have not yet been finalised
but Ariel’s commitment to
performance for value will
ensure that the Atom 500 is
competitive in cost as well
as performance.
With the standard Atom 300
already achieving sub 3
second times to 60mph and
sub 7 second times to
100mph, the 500 will take
this one stage further with
record breaking production
car possibilities.Ariel atom
