Gallery: the mad Ariel Atom 4 at TG24
Bask in more pics of the 320bhp Atom doing its thing at Portimao
Fun fact: our driver isn’t actually moving here, just making ‘vroom vroom’ noises and waving the steering about. It kept him quiet for a while, in any case.
Also fun fact: it is impossible not to smile while driving an Ariel Atom 4.
As we told you here, the dash is fully digital and fully new. See that little blue knob? TURN IT. It’s the seven-stage traction control system. Another little yellow knob on the right cycles through 220bhp, 290bhp and 320bhp modes. Blue one off, yellow one 320. Hold on tight.
‘Weeeeeeeeeeee’ our man likely said, while executing a rather natty slide. Either that or a profanity we can’t publish. On balance it’s probably that last thing.
The devil’s in the details, no?
Fun but totally inaccurate fact: helmets are a necessity not only for health and safety reasons, but also because the Atom’s roof scoop has an appetite for hair follicles.
‘What’s a 470- oh right, I geddit.’
An Atom on an apex. Like a Golden Retriever swallowing up a biscuit. Harmony.
