The Ariel Atom 3S is a lightweight track toy capable of hitting the 0-60 mile per hour marker in less than 3 seconds. I say track toy only because the Ariel Atom is not a street legal ride. It is a bit bare bones at just 1,350 lbs stark naked, and certainly a much more economic solution than some exotic sports cars.
Ariel produces the Atom for European customers. It can be purchased Stateside through special distributors who have been given permissions to build the cars. Right now TMI AutoTech Inc. has the exclusive rights to build and sell the Ariel Atom. The company is located at the Virginia International Raceway.
