    huh?

    from an Evo article"

    "The Rezvani Beast 500 is a new sports car, based around the Ariel Atom chassis, with a wild-looking body, not dissimilar in concept to an old evo favourite – the Lamborghini Aventador J.

    The new company, founded by US designer Fardees Rezvani, has no direct links with Ariel, but uses the British sports car as a basis for the Beast. Thanks to a 500bhp version of the Atom’s Honda-sourced engine, featuring both turbo and supercharging, the Beast will hit 0-60mph in 2.7secs. This is matched up with a six-speed manual gearbox."

    so a body kit and a twin changed honda Atom?

    I'd say the chance of this making it beyond 3D mockup is pretty low.

    Their options price list is taken straight from the Atom options

    Wow, for a mere $59,500, I can convert my existing Atom to one with a body kit.

    So is there a door now? So for 60K we can now cover up what we originally paid 60K+ for, cool....

    Funny my wife showed me a picture last night and I said "huh looks like a ^#%!$ up vette"
    Price is a little high for my blood, but does offer a great compromise-in theory-for the atoms "shortcomings"

    Yes given that the strength of the atom is simplicity, a body kit is hard to justify in my mind. If one were fitted the simpler the better. This one appeals to me though still not simple enough and I am sure very pricey. Jaydee Quantum - Showroom The more it looks like a formula one car the better
