PostHeaderIcon Ariel Sets Its Sights On Building A 1,180-Horsepower Hypercar

Just as the world’s premium automakers are rushing to one-up each other with their hypercar offerings, a new player in the scene is looking to strike all of them down with what it calls “tomorrow’s supercar today.” Don’t look now, but British automaker Ariel wants a piece of the hypercar pie and is set to take as much of it as it can with an offering that’s being touted as the “fastest-accelerating and most advanced supercar in history.”

This is not a drill, folks. Ariel really has plans for supercar domination and its banking its hopes and dreams on a 1,200-horsepower, all-wheel-drive, electric, two-seater supercar that will not only feature revolutionary technology, but will also come with performance capabilities never before seen in the segment. If that sounds a little like hyperbole, it’s because it probably is. Still, Ariel believes that it has the goods to back up its claims of supercar glory for its prized creation, which goes by the High Performance Carbon Reduction, or HIPERCAR for short. The full details have yet to be revealed, but Ariel says that the car will feature an aluminum monocoque chassis, carbon fiber body panels, and a turbine range extender powertrain that will give it a staggering 1,180 horsepower and 1,328 pound-feet of torque – enough to supposedly allow it to spring from 0 to 100 mph in just 3.8 seconds on its way to hitting a restricted top speed of 160 mph. If this electric hypercar does come to fruition, imagine what it can do to Jeremy Clarkson’s face when it blasts off the line.

PostHeaderIcon The Ariel Nomad Might Be The Perfect All-Terrain Vehicle

The BBC’s Top Gear has a new segment called Rory Reid’s Road Trips, and it’s fantastic. In it, the new host takes a long drive through an interesting place while driving an even more interesting vehicle. This time, it’s the Ariel Nomad. Now you’ve surely heard of Ariel, the small British automaker that hand-builds open-air, street-legal cars. They’re best known for the Atom, a super lightweight rocket powered by any number of four-cylinder (or even a V-8!) engines with big, sticky tires and the ability to out-handle supercars. Well, the Nomad is the Atom’s tough cousin.

Built for off-roading adventures, the Nomad is built on a similar skeletal chassis as the Atom, but has big shock absorbers, meaty tires, and tall ground clearance. Though it doesn’t have 4WD, its low curb weight and Honda-sourced four-cylinder with 235 brake horsepower allow the 1,477-pound Nomad to dig its way over any obstacle – including a rally circuit. Oh, and on dry pavement, it’ll hit 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds!

As Rory Reid finds out, the Nomad is a fantastic drifter, both on the road an on the dirt. It performs even better with the legendary rally driver David Higgins behind the wheel. Reid gets schooled on throwing the Nomads rear around a corner, while the throttle pedal is hammered to the floor. Having a handbrake lever doesn’t hurt either.

So this begs the question: is the Nomad the perfect all-terrain vehicle? Well, before we answer that, it’s important to look at the Nomad’s intended function. It’s lack of 4WD means it isn’t intended for deep mud or rock crawling. Rather, this thing is built for moderate to high-speed blasting. Granted, traction isn’t much of an issue thanks to the engine and transmission being directly over the rear wheels. So yeah, it can probably go 75 percent of place anyone in a Jeep Wrangler is willing to go. And if push comes to shove, the Nomad can be fitted with a Warn recovery winch.

In our eyes, the Ariel Nomad might indeed be one of the best all-terrain vehicles sold today. Its open-air cabin, outrageous power-to-weight ratio, and go-anywhere tires and suspension make it impossible not to want.

Let us know what you think in the comments below.


PostHeaderIcon Ariel Nomad

One of Great Britain’s smallest automakers has been building one of the biggest names in track-focused vehicles – the Ariel Atom. Now that company is leaving the track and getting dirty with its all-new Nomad. Think of it as an Atom with knobby tires and beefy suspension.

Basically an extreme dune buggy, the Nomad shares a similar design as the Atom, right down to its exoskeletal frame, Honda powerplant, stomach-churning performance capabilities, and the seemingly never-ending list of factory options.

Speaking of the factory, the Nomad will be hand-built along side the Atom in the company’s Somerset, England plant. Plans are already being laid for TMI Autoech of Virginia to construct the Nomad within the U.S. as well. Both manufacturers will offer customers the ability to request nearly any custom feature, building the exact vehicle they envision.

Of course the Nomad is a huge departure from the Atom. It has a fully enclosed tube-frame roof built from thicker material, its suspension is built to handle high-speed off-roading, and its Honda-sourced, 2.4-liter four-cylinder is stroked for extra torque production. Even the body panels are different, made from flexible polyethylene plastic as to withstand impacts. That’s the same stuff road cones are made of.

Ariel is officially releasing the Nomad at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham, England on January 9th, 2015, but all the juicy details have already been divulged. Keep reading for the rest of the info.

Updated 10/16/2015: A new report indicates that Ariel is offering a supercharged engine for the Nomad. The upgrade will increase the engine’s power up to 290 horsepower and 251 pound-feet of torque and will improve the car’s overall performance figures. However, the supercharger will increase the final price by about £6000 – or about $9,000.

PostHeaderIcon Top Gear Goes Off-Roading in Ariel Nomad

airel-nomad-top-gear

A while back the Top Gear Magazine team hit the dirt with a Mercedes G500 4×4 and a Ford Raptor, filmed it, and put it online. That video did rather well, so they decided to make another one, this time starring the Ariel Nomad.

Built by the prestigious British sports car maker, Ariel Nomad is supposed to be the Atom of the rough terrain, delivering the same thrill its road-going sibling delivers on tarmac on mud and gravel and rocks. Let’s see how it does:

Airel Nomad Specifications:

Engine: 2.4 K24 Honda 4 cylinder i-VTEC, Alloy block, cylinder head, sump

Power: 235 BHP @ 7200 rpm Torque 300Nm @ 4300 rpm

Exhaust: 4 – 2 –1 fabricated stainless steel exhaust manifold, Stainless silencer.

Chassis: Bronze welded steel tube. Phosphated, powder coated finish.

Suspension: Double unequal length TIG welded fabricated wishbones front and rear, outboard Bilstein dampers front and rear, alloy steel Eibach coil springs front and rear

Steering: Rack and pinion cast alloy steering rack 1.7 turns lock to lock

Body: Non structural roto- mould toughened polyethylene

Length: 3215. Width 1850. Height 1425

PostHeaderIcon Ariel Atom Vs. Snowmobile: Video

Even though we’re halfway through April, the snow videos keep on a’coming. And while sliding around your driveway like a drunken Ken Block is no fun for anyone, the frozen conditions do make for some pretty interesting match ups. Case in point: this drag race between an Ariel Atom and a Polaris 800 Rush Pro-S snowmobile. The venue of choice is Alton Bay Seaplane Base in New Hampshire, which claims to be the only FAA-approved airport on ice in the contiguous United States. With a ton of space to run, speeds in this particular contest breach the triple digit mark, despite the low levels of grip.

To help the Atom keep pace, its high-performance rubber was swapped out in favor of studded tires from Woody’s Traction. And even though the Atom is an absolute rocket ship, with 230 horsepower and only 1,315 pounds of weight, the Polaris is no slouch either. Turning the treads is an 800 cc, two-cylinder, two-stroke engine producing 160 horsepower. When that kind of output is paired to a weight of just 430 pounds, this speed contest might be closer than you think.

In the end, it’s the Atom that takes the win by a car length, safeguarding the pride of four-wheeled aficionados everywhere. Chalk it up to the extra traction on ice from the new tires and the obvious superiority of the automobile.

PostHeaderIcon Video: EVO Reviews The Ariel Nomad

We’re barely two weeks in and 2015 has already been a pretty stellar year for cars. We’re still catching our breath from some pretty extraordinary debuts in Detroit, but probably one of the most exciting new cars we’ve seen so far this year is the Ariel Nomad. Actually, it’s not so much car as a dune buggy, and the guys from EVO Magazine got up close with one at the 2015 Autosport Show in Birmingham, England.

Ariel is a tiny company based in Somerset, England that’s made an enormous impact on the performance-car world. Using the same ultra-minimalist, lightweight design philosophy it applied to the Atom track-day car, Ariel has created an off-roader.

Like the Atom, the Nomad has an exoskeleton chassis, but that fully encapsulates the occupants. Honda power is still used, but it’s a 2.4-liter unit instead of the 2.0-liter from the Atom. The additional displacement is good for 221 pound-feet of torque and 235 horsepower. Top speed is 125 mph, and 0-60 comes in 3.4 seconds—extremely quick by both on- and off-road standards. The Nomad uses outboard mounted shocks rather than the inboard, racecar-style units of the Atom.

Like the Atom and the Ace motorcycle, the Nomad is infinitely customizable. Both 15-inch and 18-inch wheels are available, shod in a variety of mud, sand or gravel tires. The roof-mounted fog lamps and winch are also options. If you would rather not expose yourself to the elements, a windshield and weather kit will take care of that.

Will we be able to buy in North America? We spoke with TMI AutoTech, the Virginia-based licensed builder of Ariel Atoms, who told us they had no plans to build or sell the Nomad this year. Give it time though; there could be a huge audience for the Nomad on out shores.
