The official debut will be in 2019.
The project is backed by the U.K. government.
The result is more downforce. Much more downforce.
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.
Check out this eighth-mile and quarter-mile drag race between an Ariel Atom 3.5R, Yamaha R1, and a rallycross-prepped Citroen DS3.
Ariel and Honda have renewed their engine agreement in the UK to keep the high-revving powerplants in the lightweight vehicles.
Ferris Rezvani revealed exclusively to Autoblog plans for a fixed-roof coupe version of the Beast as well as an ultra-rugged SUV, both of which are slated to launch sometime later this year.
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.
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 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.
