Carbarn is proud to present our low mileage Ariel Atom CUP 3.5 which was registered in 2016, powered by the 2.0L 4 cylinder naturally aspirated Honda K20 Engine with limited slip differential and 6 speed manual gearbox. This super lightweight road legal track car produces 245hp at 8200rpm but weights only 520kg and in the right hands delivers 0-60 in 3.2 seconds on its way to a 145mph maximum speed! It offers a quite staggering power to weight ratio of 479bhp/ton.
The Ariel factory have confirmed that this car competed in the short lived Atom cup series as car 25 (with white panels originally) and was meticulously maintained as part of that programme prior to being road registered.
First registered on 01/10/2016 and having covered only 3550 miles, this rare track focussed atom is finished in the desirable black frame option with orange body panels and black wheels. Factory fitted specification includes MSA-approved roll-cage, a motorsport-spec fuel tank, a fire extinguisher and a cut-off switch. We have fitted a factory supplied handbrake kit to this car, so no worries come MOT time.
The suspension features longer wishbones to allow greater camber adjustment and adjustable Ohlins race dampers are fitted. Alcon big brakes are included to front & rear with a brake bias controller and 5 point race harnesses. This hardcore Atom Cup will be supplied serviced and with 12 months MOT.
'We bought this car from a friend of the original owner who bought it new. This being the Cup model, it has the fully adjustable suspension, allowing it to be configured to your personal preference. So if you wish to drive it mainly on the road or track, you can set it up to suit your needs. I have heard these described as a 4 wheeled motorbike, and when you take it for a spin you can understand why!'
