From the Somerset-based Ariel comes the Atom Mugen - an open-wheeled, road-legal, bare-bones, speed machine. Uncompromising in its construction, this track toy does not aim for comfort or practicality, but instead focuses on no-frills performance and driving in its purest form.
Just 1 of 10 examples built, this Ariel Atom has received some upgrades courtesy of Honda’s favoured tuning partner, Mugen. The Type R engine inside the Mugen gets an upgraded 270bhp, compared to the standard 245bhp of the ‘regular’ Atom, which gets the car from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds – comparable to the AMG One, 296 GTB, and McLaren Senna. Fast. Stupidly Fast. And all in a package that weighs 550KG dry. There is no doubt that driving the Mugen will give an unparalleled driving experience.
The exo-skeleton construction paired with a Formula 1 style bell-cranked suspension makes this a true race car for the road. This theme is continued into the interior, or lack thereof. Stripped out and containing not much other than carbon bucket seats, a steering wheel, and pedals, the Mugen does not try to hide its true nature, and when you take it on the track, the visceral feeling through each corner more than makes up for the sparse creature comforts. The LCD dash, covered in colourful buttons labelled with various acronyms and symbols, serves to remind you that you are driving in as close to a Formula 1 car that the public can get their hands on. Once you’re parked up and you take the detachable steering wheel out with you, you can be safe in knowing you have the coolest car on the road.
