Ariel unveils the Mugen-tuned Atom
Fabled Japanese tuning house tweaks the West Country’s face-destroying export
Posted: 14 Jan 2011
Mugen has tuned the 2.0-litre Honda VTEC engine to produce 270bhp, up from the standard 245bhp, following an extensive overhaul. New high performance pistons, high-lift camshafts, valve springs, race grade spark plugs and a baffled sump replace the originals.
A carbon fibre Mugen engine cover better displays your pit-lane superiority, too. Cower, peasants! (Unless of course, someone's rocked up with a V8 Atom, in which case, kneel, peasant!)
