Ariel Atom 3S unleashed with 365 HP

Ariel in collaboration with TMI AutoTech have introduced the Atom 3S which is the second most powerful variant of the model after the V8 variant. Its heart and soul is a 2.4-liter engine borrowed from Honda which in this application has been tuned to develop no less than 365 HP (268 kW) and a maximum torque of 310 lb-ft (420 Nm). It can work with a standard, close-ratio or a newly developed six-speed Sadev transmission equipped with steering column-mounted paddles. Stopping power is provided by four-piston brake calipers on all wheels while the suspension system benefits from adjustable dampers.
