Ariel Atom VS Ferrari
Playing around getting some footage of Kevin's nice 430 at shannonville
track day (MR2 club track day). You can't really tell until near the end,
but the Atom's much faster.
Better to get footage than just pass that big red exotic :).
Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?

Electric Ariel Atom vs Porsche Carrera GT Ferrari 360 Spider NO CONTEST
Electric Ariel Atom vs Porsche Carrera GT Ferrari 360 Spider
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drive line
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$25.00 per 100kms.
Ferrari 360 Spider - 400Bhp / 3197lb
Porsche Carrera GT - 605Bhp / 3043lb

Ariel Atom Nurburgring Nordschleife
Fourth lap of the Nordschleife, I clocked the time to be 9:12 which is
slow, but there were three Yellow flags to slow down for so I think a more
respectable 8:12 would have been possible. Looking back at the video it's
easy to say should have been flat out in several areas, we touch 130mph in
place. But unless you have driven this track and know where the bends go
after blind corners you need more than 4 laps to know your way around! So I
was happier to back off have a slower time and still be able to drive the
car back to the UK and not be on a tow truck.
