Icon7 Mugen edition Ariel Atom

want




It's hard to believe that 10 whole years have passed since the only Brit crazier than Amy Winehouse hit the world stage. We are, of course, referring to the Ariel Atom, but you already knew that, didn't you? And, like any good anniversary celebration, AutoExpress reports that Ariel is celebrating its tenth by releasing a special edition, which sure beats the traditional anniversary gift of tin...

As befitting the celebration, Ariel plans to create just 10 special editions, the first of which will make its debut at the Autosport Show in the UK in January. The big news is that Ariel has partnered up with Mugen – a company that specializes in adding more power and finesse to Honda's wares – to boost the power of its Honda-sourced 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from 245 to 270 horsepower.

Further frippery will include a special coat of paint and a plaque proclaiming its special place in the order along with the signatures of the Mugen and Ariel technicians who built it (just one of each will have their hands on the machine).

Id like to know how much more it is. Mugen seems to like to bolt some parts on then increase the price 30-50%.

Needs MF-10's, Mugen lip, and Mugen seats. Then it'll be official.

So, a detuned stock engine, badges, exhaust tip, wheels and a leather steering wheel with a 20k mark-up?

*yawn*

Even though the car already has an insane power/weight ratio, this is a pretty weak bump in power.

Is the Atom boosted? Because... 270 hp in a 2.0L is still a good amount if it is. If not, then 135 hp/liter is insane.

I am pretty sure this is naturally aspirated since xtrac posted it.

They DO offer boosted versions though.

Personally I'll wait for the V8 version. :O

It's N/A. The supercharged K20A motor makes over 350whp.

You must not be keeping up with the power people have been making with K-series engines. It's getting insane.
