Default All-New Ariel Atom 4 Presented With Honda Civic Type R Engine

Ariel has brought the Atom into its fourth generation, although youíd be excused if you cannot tell the differences between this and the previous model.

However, the small British automaker says that everything is new, except for the fuel cap and brake/clutch pedals, which have been carried over.

The most important part of the new Ariel Atom 4 lies under the hood, and is the same engine normally found in the latest Honda Civic Type R.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit features the brandís own Engine Control Unit (ECU), and is married to a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. It generates 320PS (315hp / 235kW), which, thanks to the low weight design, allows the track toy to sprint from 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) in 2.8 seconds and climb up to 261km/h (162mph).

The car comes with an updated suspension that features standard Bilstein dampers or optional Ohlins parts. And speaking about optional extras, future buyers should know that they will be able to choose the launch control and traction control systems from the Atom V8. Also, the 16- and 17-inch front and rear wheels can be replaced by carbon fiber-made ones.

The body of the new Ariel Atom 4 might look almost the same as before, but itís made from carbon fiber and benefits from optimized airflow. The company talks about increased downforce and lower drag, too.

Ariel will assemble about 100 units annually at their factory near Crewkerne, Somerset, alongside the Nomad and Ace motorbike. Each one will be put together by a single technician.

Besides the UK plant, Ariel will also make the new Atom 4 under license in South Boston, Virginia, USA, for the North and South American markets. Both versions of the car will have identical specs.

Pricing for the overseas market hasnít been disclosed yet, but in its homeland, the new Ariel Atom 4 starts from £39,975 ($52,995). The first cars will be delivered next spring, but before that, the track model will debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this week.
