Wimmer takes the Atom 3's turbocharged 2.0 liter, four-cylinder, Honda-sourced engine and dials it up to 340 PS (250 kW) from the series 300 PS (221 kW).

German tuner Wimmer RS has added a few extra horses to the Ariel Atom 3 that go a long way on this very lightweight car.

Wimmer takes the Atom 3's turbocharged 2.0 liter, four-cylinder, Honda-sourced engine and dials it up to 340 PS (250 kW) from the series 300 PS (221 kW / 296 bhp). Torque goes up to 282 Nm (208 lb-ft). With a curb weight of just 469 kg (1034 lbs) on the Ariel Atom 3, that bump in power is good for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint time of just 2.8 seconds. 200 km/h (124 mph) is achieved in 7.1 seconds.

The tuner adds the extra 40 PS (29 kW / 40 bhp) by means of an ECU remapping, a turbocharger overhaul, a fuel pump conversion and the addition of a sport exhaust.

The Ariel Atom 3 has no doors and sports a bare tube frame with internal shock absorbers. It has a push-rod suspension with dampers at the top. It is designed for pure performance.
