Ariel Atom 1

July 2nd, 2008 by Rolph · 1 Comment

This isn’t a car, it’s a… well, what is it? Apparently, when you are driving it, it is best descibed as Hell on Wheels! That is, when you are trying to go as fast as the Ariel can handle. You probably can’t… How in the world they managed to make this exoskeleton extra-large go-cart street legal is beyond me.

The owner of this Ariel obviously has a wife who likes shopping,  I can’t think of another reason why anyone would drive this car to the center of Rotterdam on a sunny saturday afternoon and park it dead center in the shopping district. This must be THE least practical car to take luggage with you 🙂

Dear, of course you can buy this expensive dress! But then you have to take the bus home, we can’t take bags in the Atom… 😉

For all specs and stories, I refer to the rest of the internet, haha. Top gear had a field day with this car, so no shortage of nice anecdotes and quotes. It is a very fast car, it feels even faster when you are driving it, it is incomparable: the Ariel Atom!
