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?
Autocar, the world's leading motoring magazine and website, delivers
industry-leading news, the most in-depth car reviews and opinion from our
team of experts. Our presenters include some of the world's top motoring
journalists who have unrivalled access to the world's fastest, rarest, most
exotic and most exciting cars on some of the world's best roads and race
Can a supercar beat a superbike? Can a Audi A1 outrun a Nissan GT-R on a
wet circuit? Can a Porsche 911 slay a Corvette on the drag strip? Autocar
pitches the giants of the performance car world against each other to
deliver the all-important verdict.

Used Car Scam (The Today Show)
Today Investigates the Nation's biggest used car scam.
Buying a used car? Don't just take the seller's word about the car's
You can use a car's vehicle identification number (VIN) to get information
including whether the car is stolen or has been in a major accident or a
Since Jan. 30, consumers have been able to research cars through the
National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), a program of the
U.S. Department of Justice. The online database includes information for
about 73% of the country's auto population, gleaned from state agencies,
junk- and salvage-yard organizations, and insurance companies.
Currently information from 38 states is available, and all states are
required to fully participate by Jan. 1, 2010.
Visit nmvtis.gov, click on one of the listed providers and follow the
prompts. Expect to pay between $2 and $4 for a report, because the
authorizing law required that federal funds not be used for this database.
Used-car reports from commercial companies, like Carfax and Experian's
AutoCheck, have a higher price tag but draw information from a wider
variety of sources.
A single report from AutoCheck costs $14.99 (unlimited access for 60 days
costs $24.99) and includes information from all states as well as from some
sources not found in the NMVTIS database.
When buying a used car, you need to verify the VIN so you are not a victim
of this scam:
Here's How to Find Your Car's VIN
Locate your car's unique DNA - its unique vehicle identification number.
VINs are normally located in several locations on a car, but the most
common places are:
- On the door frame/door post of the front doors (usually driver's but
- On the dash near the windshield
- On the engine itself (machined pad on front of engine)
- On the car's firewall
- In the left-hand inner wheel arch
- On the steering wheel/steering column
- On the radiator support bracket
There is a chart that gives further information (by car line) on both the
location of the VIN plate and which character in your VIN represents your
year of production and specific engine on a used car website, but they have
limited the listings to only import cars since those are the car lines in
which they specialize.
Alternatively, you can call the consumer relations department for the
vehicle manufacturer or visit a local new car dealer and ask for the
location of the VIN
It is often etched into multiple locations on any vehicle.
