The 320 HP Ariel Atom 4 will soon be available in the country
Have you always wanted to have a road-legal go-kart? Is your idea of fun mean getting behind the wheel of an open-air (and open-wheel) vehicle that can go from 0 – 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds? Bikerbox has something special for you.
Aside from bringing in the Ariel Ace motorcycle, Bikerbox, Inc. will also be bringing the infamous Atom. While it may look like something meant for the track, the Atom is actually road legal and Bikerbox, Inc. is now accepting indent orders for the Atom 4.
Weighing in at just 595 kg and powered by a Honda Civic Type R-derived 2.0-liter K20C turbocharged engine, the Atom 4 is one serious four-wheeled beast. With 320 PS and 420 Nm of torque ready on tap, Ariel claims the Atom can catapult itself from 0 – 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, 2.1 seconds faster than the Civic Type R, and it has a top speed of 260 km/h.
Power is then sent to a six-speed manual gearbox and it benefits from a limited-slip differential. Helping the Atom 4 carve corners are Bilstein dampers, though customers have the option of upgrading the suspension to Ohlins. Finally, it has a staggered wheel arrangement of 195/50/R16 at the front and 255/40/R17 at the back, both of which are made from lightweight carbon fiber.
Prefer something that can go off-road? The Ariel Nomad is also available for indent order and it's powered by a tuned 2.4-liter K24 engine derived from Honda. It makes 235 PS along with 300 Nm and is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox. Allowing the Nomad to go anywhere it pleases is a double-wishbone suspension all around that come with Bilstein dampers and Eibach coil springs. In addition, the Nomad also comes with 235/75/R15 all-terrain tires.
Want to customize your Atom or Nomad before it arrives here? Bikerbox, Inc. says that customers can specifically customize what their vehicles can have thanks to a myriad of options. As for the price, well since each one will be unique, they can't exactly say how much each unit will cost.
Both the Atom and the Nomad will arrive in the Philippines shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed and the situation in the country has improved. The only question now is where will you take the Ariel Atom (or the Nomad) first?
