Ariel Atom 3S

Starting from $89,975

Please welcome the Ariel Atom 3S.  This vehicle has a fully intercooled turbocharging system that mates well with the Honda 2.4L engine with a major focus on performance and reliability.  Owners will be happy to know that both goals have been met while pushing the engine to 365 bhp.  Additional cooling radiators for the turbo are neatly packaged in the aerodynamic twin side pods which are unique to the Atom 3S.

The Atom's well known pushrod suspension system keeps the Atom 3S glued to the road with the assistance of JRi adjustable dampers featuring a two piece spring layout.  These dampers have been valved and extensively tested for this vehicle providing an ample adjustment range for both road and track.

All Atom 3S feature a full glass windscreen to allow for a clear view ahead while seated in the race inspired composite seat.  A full LCD display allows for easy viewing of data such as speed, RPM, gear position, as well as water temperature and fuel level.
