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?

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.
Thank you guys for all the support you do on my channel. Please don't

Sexy Dayanis has fun in Ariel Atom!
We invited Dayanis Garcia over to the TR3 Performance shop to plan for an
upcoming video shoot and we decided to take her for a ride in the INFAMOUS
Ariel Atom... needless to say she was blown away! We just had to give a
shout out to the driver of the Atom because for being only 16yrs old he
handled that beast of a machine like a pro!

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.

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.
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
