Fast becoming a collectors item this is a very rare Ariel Atom 2 160. Made as a limited edition of 25 in 2006 the Atom 160 has a 2.0L Type S engine. With different wheels and tyres and detail changes from the standard Atom 2, the 160 was described by Top Gear as ‘the most fun way round a track’. Autocar said it was an ‘absolute riot to drive with keen, feelsome steering….’.
The car is one owner with only 13,700 miles and was destined for the Ariel Museum, but space is at a premium so is now for sale. Although nothing wrong with it, but because the car had not been used for a couple of years and it was going on display, it was subject to a complete overhaul. Completely stripped, the chassis re-powder coated and then rebuilt and is therefore in first class, standard condition.
As older Atoms are now going up in price and becoming sought after, this is a unique opportunity to buy a very rare and fun Atom in great, standard condition, overhauled and serviced by us here at Ariel.
