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?

Will it drift? Ariel Atom Mugen
The 270bhp, 550kg, rear-wheel drive Ariel Atom Mugen sounds like the ideal
drifting machine. It isn't. Steve Sutcliffe explains why the gratuitous
powersliding you'll see here wasn't easy. Read the review at
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 :).
Are You Kidding Me?
Jimmy Smith puts down a blazing fast pass at Bandimere Speedway's 1/4 mile
track. This truck was running in the street modified 4WD class. Like the
announcer says, "Are you kidding me??"
