You are looking at a rare turbocharged Ariel Atom 3S.  Currently one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world, the 3S is light-years ahead of the previous naturally aspirated, or even the supercharged K24-powered Atom 3. Lighting fast speed is combined with the most highly desirable upgrades and “hand-of-God” Alcon brakes as standard equipment. In addition, the car has a new Hondata traction control system for improved confidence when the pedal hits the floor.

We are a factory authorized Ariel dealer. Buy with confidence! While current wait times for new factory orders are around six months, this 3S is in like new condition, with no track time, and on the ground for immediate delivery. We sold the car new to its original owner, who was hoping to get back into the track seen after many years away, but he spends a significant number of weekends away for work and has not had the time to drive it. His exact words were “right car, wrong timing.” Now, his loss can be your gain.

This one-of-a-kind Atom 3S is custom finished in a Porsche GT3 orange paint scheme. It looks incredible in person and must be seen to fully appreciate. The car had an original build cost of $98,120. (Over $100K to replicate in a new 2017 build).
