"The GT3 RS can’t hold a candle to the Atom 4R"

The chassis has no right being so supple and magnanimous.  The springs don’t need to be stiff because they’ve only got 700kilos to deal with, and the exotic Ohlins dampers deliver silky composure.  It rides the bumps and kerbs without ever being skittish and has a far bigger sweet spot than you’d ever imagine.

But the engine. Oh my God.  You’d call it sound, but really it’s noise with the skin peeled off.  The turbo shrieks and gasps are accompanied by vicious acceleration and face rearranging exposure.

The Atom 4R is a masterpiece.
