Ariel has taken updated chassis components from the V8 and Mugen models, and have bestowed them onto their regular car, creating the Atom 3.5 .
These modifications lead to improved stiffness and torsional rigidity, while new engine mounts and dampers help give the car a more compliant on-road ride, while maintaining the razor sharp handling it is famous for.

Another new addition is the new digital LCD dashboard display, which features gear-shift lights, as well as a data logger and G-force meter. Styling-wise, the 3.5 gets a restyled bonnet and new twin-projector headlights, LED turn signals and tail lights.

Power comes from the 2.0-liter Honda-sourced iVTEC engine, which still puts out the same 245 hp. The supercharged version takes the figure up to 310 hp (10 hp increase over the old model), courtesy of a new intake design and a remapped ECU.

According to Simon Saunders, Director of Ariel: “Whether it’s a fast road car, the ultimate track-day weapon, a fun weekend car or a combination of all three, we can make a car that is personal and individual to that particular customer.
