Somerset. It's currently being invaded by urbanites in straw hats seaking some sort of mass transcendental experience at Glastonbury. But it also heralds the masters of stripped-back track lightweight madness: Ariel.
Recently we got to have a go in its latest creation, the supercharged 350bhp Atom 3.5R. With its flappy paddles, tuned Civic Type R engine and 0-60mph time "approaching 2.5 seconds", it left TG's Sam Philip a bit lost for words.
"‘Fast' doesn't even begin to describe the furious, screaming, mass-free manner in which the 3.5R gathers speed. Neither does ‘rapid', ‘warp speed' or ‘oh dear, I appear to have left my face behind'."
You can read the full story here, then decorate your desktop with the Somerset's finest skeletal trackday monster by scrolling through the pics above, clicking the size that takes your fancy and add it to your computery devices background.
