    VIN History

    This Atom received an assigned VIN when it was first registered and titled in Indiana. It is now titled in Virginia, and Virginia kept the VIN assigned to it in Indiana.

    FEATHERLITE TRAILER ($18k new)
    Enclosed 24 foot Featherlite trailer. Excellent condition, with less than 2000 miles.
    Solid white. Excellent trailer for the Atom, with plenty of room for other toys!
    Spotless interior. Normal wear on exterior, and very good condition.
    2008.

    Description
    The Ariel Atom feels like being strapped in to a 4-wheeled superbike, with acceleration, braking and handling that must be experienced to be believed.
    Yes, this is the car you have seen on Top Gear, along with 12.4 million others who want to feel the rush. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaWoo82zNUA

    I bought the car with 1000 miles on it in June 2008. This car was well optioned from the factory with the supercharged Ecotec and Carbon Fiber fenders and instrument surround. It also has the Wilwood track brakes, which were an upgrade option from the stock brakes. You'll be amazed at how quickly the Wilwoods bring this 1400 lb car from "scary fast" to a stop!

    The car is in excellent shape mechanically and cosmetically. It has been meticulously maintained by FunktionAuto, Chantilly, VA and TMI AutoTech Inc., Alton, VA, the North American builder and distributor of the Atom.

    The Atom has been titled, licensed, tagged, safety/emissions inspected in most states. More information can be found on the forums for very enthusiastic Atom owners at https://www.arielatomchat.com/forums/ or at ariel.club

    Car runs great and doesn't have any problems. Serious potential buyers can inspect the car near Alexandria, VA, and, weather permitting, I can offer you a ride as a passenger. Due to the extreme power to weight ratio and the potential to let the car surprise inexperienced drivers, I cannot offer test drives without a financial commitment and a signed agreement.

    This car was a pleasure to own, and now the fun is yours.


    Still haven't decided . . .

    This supercharged Atom 2 is ready for immediate delivery. A similarly configured new Atom would cost tens of thousands more, and there is often a wait spanning several months. AND YOU GET A PERFECT TRAILER to make transport easy. Previously owned Atoms in this excellent condition typically sell very quickly. If you're saving for a Ferrari F430 or Lamborghini Gallardo for your weekend thrill rides, how about an Atom NOW that will destroy either one of them in a straight line, or on a track, for less than half the price! The supercharged Atom 2 will accelerate from 0-60 in only 2.9 seconds and pulls more than one G on the skidpad. Trust me, unless you have found a way to weld two Ducati 1198s together, you have never had this much street-legal fun on four wheels. I dare you to take a ride and not come away smiling.

    If Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear isn't convincing enough, how about Eddie Hill -- the first drag racer to run the quarter mile in under 5 seconds - and long-time Atom convert and salesman. "If the Ariel Atom can satisfy the need for speed of someone who was routinely running from 0-320mph in 4.5 seconds….that says a lot about the performance capabilities of the Atom," says Mark Swain from TMI.

    The Ariel Atom began life as a student project by Nik Smart, a Coventry University transport design student. First known as the LSC (Lightweight Sports Car), it was developed at the university in 1996 with input and funding from various automotive industry members. The car was first shown publicly at the British International Motor Show in October, 1996. These machines are true marvels of engineering and performance, providing an indescribable feeling to those lucky enough, and brave enough, to get some time behind the steering wheel.

    Thanks for your interest!

    Who needs some summer fun? Temps will be rising soon, and this car needs a new home.

    I'm willing to sell the 24 ft Featherlite trailer on its own. It is a great trailer for the Atom. It is light, tows nicely, and has plenty of room for other goodies.
    Located in Virginia.
