Thrilled to see the latest move from Ariel Motors in the UK: an off-road version of its legendary Atom sports car!
This new variant is called the Nomad and is based on the latest Atom 3 running gear — but with a totally new roll-cage/chassis combination, a huge suspension upfit and giant dune-munching tires. A windshield is also in the mix on the teaser shots. This will be helpful for keeping the mud and sand out of your face!
200-horsepower is the output from the rear-engine Nomad, with rear-drive keeping things just a few hundred pounds up on the flyweight Atom 3. Teasers of the Nomad shown below, plus the latest Atom 3 and Atom 3.5R Roadster.
We’ll have all the details January 6th — watch this space.
