The Ariel Atom 3RS

The most powerful Production Ariel

Welcome to the top...

The Ariel Atom 3RS takes everything we loved with the Atom 3S and cranks it up. Guided by feedback and requests from our
clients provided us a “driver’s point of view” checklist to meet.  As you can expect increasing performance was much of the list! 

The new Atom 3RS provides an engine package with forged pistons attached to h-beam connecting rods fastened with ARP rod bolts. Tool steel head studs work to effectively clamp the head with the help of a MLS gasket. A short runner air intake provides improved drivability while directing the flow from the Borg Warner turbo charger. A larger Air:Water intercooler provides increased cooling capacity for the intake charge while still ensuring the radiators are neatly tucked away within aerodynamic sidepods. An extensive tuning phase on a dyno, race track, and the open roadways allowed for maximum gains from the new engine internals.

What does all the above mean?! It means you have 425 hp and 365 ft/lbs of torque under your foot to create a smile every time you plant your right foot!

The changes do not stop there! Putting this added power to the road is done through a 6-speed transmission with ratios chosen for both acceleration and strength. A variable material clutch disc couples this to the Honda engine. Larger 5-lug wheels shod with Toyo R888R tires connect everything to the road while also adding to the beauty of the Atom RS. A 16x7 inch wheel on the front and a 17 x 9 inch wheel on the rear provide an aggressive stance that will not go unnoticed. Keeping these wheels connected to the ground comes with the help of custom designed double adjustable dampers.

We challenge you to not enjoy driving this car. The open road is calling you.
