"Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Cars from a CAR CRAZY Kid not old enough to drive YET!"
"I am "CRAZY" about the Ariel Atom 3"
If I had an unlimited budget to purchase my first car I would choose the 2012 Ariel Atom 3. You would have to be crazy to drive the speed limit in this car. This thing is quick off the line at a 0-60 in 2.8 seconds. The Ariel Atom was a quick car however the Ariel Atom 3 has a V8 power plant inside. Be warned though; keep your mouth closed as the open cockpit will quickly fill your mouth with bugs traveling at mach II. At a price tag under 50k what’s not to like?
