Do you like Ariel Atoms? Muddy roads? Have we got the car for you!

Do you like Ariel Atoms? Muddy roads? Have we got the car for you!

Ariel was picky about what company it let make an Atom model, because the car's construction makes miniaturization complex.

The slow trickle of Top Gear previews continues with the new host testing an off-road version of the Ariel Atom.

Notes From A Week's Worth Of Car Testing In California

Managing Editor Steven Ewing drove some $2 million worth of new cars while out in California for Monterey Car Week. Here are his notes following an excellent week of driving.

The Rezvani Motors Beast is ready to go on sale. The low-slung sports car features an Ariel Atom-based chassis that's covered in a carbon-fiber body. The 500-horsepower supercharged and turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder should provide plenty of power to move its 1,650 pounds.

By combining some of the attributes of a sports car with those of an off-road buggy, the Ariel Nomad is certainly trying something a little different. In a new video, Evo's Henry Catchpole finds out how it handles the road.

An Ariel Atom and a snowmobile line up side-by-side with a long, straight strip of roadway ahead. In an elemental move that would seemingly bend the contest's favor in the direction of the snowmobile, these machines are racing on a strip of ice.

The company behind the raw Ariel Atom track car takes its exposed frame design off road with the new Nomad, packing VTEC power, a foot of ground clearance and a fully adjustable suspension, made to order in the UK.

The average Ariel is quite capable of conquering the track. Now the company is turning its eye to the trails with the new, 1600-pound Nomad off-roader. Offering up around 200 horsepower, it won't be "quite as quick as an Atom," but we doubt it'll be any slouch.

As far as performance machines go, they don't come much more focused than the Ariel Atom. And they keep getting more extreme in their performance capabilities, leading up to the latest version you see here.

Boutique sports car companies pop up every now and again, hoping to challenge the big (well... bigger, at least) boys before slinking away shortly thereafter as a failure unable to make a dent in the crowded market. However, that common story might not apply to new British automaker Zenos, especially if Autocar is to be believed in a new video.

Police cars are faster, more athletic and even better looking than they have been in generations.

You may know the name Ariel as the producer of the bonkers, bare-bones Atom track toy, but the name has a longer history associated with motorbikes. In fact, Ariel Motorcycles was in business from 1902 to 1970 before it was folded into BSA. And while the Atom may be as close to a motorcycle with four wheels as you're likely to find, the modern firm founded by Simon Saunders is getting back to its roots with the launch of the two-wheeler seen here.

If you're a parent, the name Ariel might conjure up one of the Disney princesses, but auto enthusiasts know it as a hardcore, boutique British sports car maker. Before being revived to make the skeletal Atom, the business was also a British motorcycle company best known for its four-cylinder bikes. Now, the modern iteration is looking to the past with plans to unveil its own cycle at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed from June 26-29.

In the 2000s, the musical mashup genre saw a peak of popularity with releases like The Grey Album from Danger Mouse that mixed The Beatles and Jay-Z. UK artist James Pursey from Carwow decided to take the same concept of shoehorning two disparate things together but applied the concept to cars. Your opinion on the results will vary with your sense of humor. These creations are either some funny pieces of abstract art or absolute monstrosities that prove good design should be left alone.

Say hello to the latest evolution of Ariel Motor's barely there bolide, the Atom 3.5R. It swipes the Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox from its bygone V8 brother, giving the 3.5R the ability to swap cogs in 40 milliseconds. The supercharged Honda Type R 2.0-liter engine gets help from a new sidepod-mounted intercooler and increased boost from 7.5 to 11 psi, so horsepower rises from 310 to 350 at a dizzying 8,400 rpm, torque to 253 pound-feet. The sidepod opposite holds an oil cooler. Set in a c
