Ariel Atom 500 V8 - Start, Rev & Accelerate

I have filmed a Gold, Red and carbon Ariel Atom V8, the most expensive and fastest Atom avalible, at the 2011 Cholmondeley Pageant Of Power. The Atom V8 develops 500bhp, does 0-60 in sub 2.5 seconds, and has a power to weight ratio of more than a Bugatti Veyron. This was my second Atom of the day, and my third overall. Video shows a few shots of the car followed by some sound including Start up, Revs and full throttle. Enjoy!! SW722 Facebook: Flickr: YouTube:

Fuel empty for the driver, so he took the exit at Adenau unfortunately :-( He was always in my mirror from the beginning, that vette is so fast!

Ariel Atom w/ Supercharger (400+ bhp) Launch control + afterburn !! - 1080p HD
During the Grand Prix of Middelharnis I have recorded this amazing Ariel Atom. It is based on a normal Ariel Atom, but this one is fitted with a Rotrex Supercharger. The engine is coming from a Honda 2.0L Type R. This gives the Ariel Atom more then 400 bhp! As you can see in this video, the Exhaust sound is more louder and it even gives the car an afterburn.
