British automaker the Ariel Motor Company has revealed its latest high-powered two-seater, the Atom 3.5R special edition. Weighing in at a mere 550kg (1,212 lbs), the car is powered by a tuned Honda Civic Type R-sourced 2.0-liter engine, allowing the car to sprint to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and hit 100 mph in six. Other enhancements include an adjusted limited-slip differential, Ohlins springs and TTX adjustable dampeners. As to how much the Atom 3.5R goes for, the price tag is a set at £80,000 GBP (approximately $135,000 USD). While the 3.5R will not see action over here in the States, the company’s official importer here has stated a similar version will be announced in the upcoming weeks. Till then, feel free to learn more about the car at the company website.
