The Top Gear car review:Ariel Nomad
Final thoughts and pick of the range
Sure the Ariel Nomad is a toy, a plaything, but it’s so simply and logically thought through, so well executed, you wonder why no-one has done it before. Thinking of buying a track day machine, but worried you’ll feel too vulnerable on the road? Try one of these. You’ll be hooked. Then take it on a track day, just to show them. And then go and batter about off-road with a Defender and see which gets further. It’d be a close run thing.
What we love about it is that it’s so different, yet feels so usable and, well, relevant. And, in a weird way, suited to daily driving – let’s face it, nothing handles a speed bump better. More than that, the Nomad does something more powerful and attractive than merely handling well or going fast. It gives every trip a sense of adventure.
