The Ariel Atom 700 has a 2.0-liter Ecotec l4 engine with 700 hp and weighs just 1,450 pounds.
The Ariel Atom 3 is no slouch with its 2.4-liter Honda l4 engine that allows the car to do the 0-60 mph sprint in just 2.9 seconds. However, there's something even faster than that in the form of the Ariel Atom 700. Created by DDMWorks, the car is motivated by a 2.0-liter Ecotec l4 engine that pumps out no less than 700 hp (521 kW / 709 PS). If that's too much, the car features two other lower power levels: 450 hp (335 kW / 456 PS) and 575 hp (428 kW / 582 PS).
They have managed to squeeze so much power from that engine by installing a turbocharger and a supercharger. DDMWorks has mentioned that the Ariel Atom 700 has a power-to-weight ratio of 2.07 pounds / hp, taking into account that the car weighs just 1,450 pounds (657 kg).
Besides the modifications brought to the engine, the Atom 700 has also received some mechanical improvements, such as the custom exhaust system. DDMWorks recommends that those who want to buy the car should first undergo some special training before taking the vehicle for a ride.
DDMWorks has not revealed the price tag for the Ariel Atom 700, but the regular Ariel Atom 3 starts from $52,480.
