    If its the V8 one then I doubt even Jardo's A3 will keep up...

    Read the number plate - V8 4TOM - probably the V8........ they are however cool little cars though and very light. The new KTM XBOW looks better though IMO but here in SA they come out with the Audi S3 8P motors......so they are pretty fast. Cheers guys

    Backdraft tune the Xbows and have a 400bhp one and a 360 ^. I`d prefer the Atom though, really dont like the look of the KTM.

    All show and no go? it's a 500bhp 10 000 rpm 3.0 V8 atom! Hardly slow.

    I have no use for dashboard cleaner in my site van, it's not mine, and it never leaves site

    I drove an Atom on a track day last year. Thankfully it wasn't the 500bhp version, as the original model scared the sh!t out of me! The acceleration was unbelievable. Seriously good fun though - highly recommended.

    Whilst tracking an AMG32 with 350bhp, 0-60 in under 5 secs, I was only overtaken by 3 cars along the straight @Bedford Autodrome. Porsche Twin turbo, Porsche GT3 and a standard Ariel Atom.

    yea I could go with that! in the EP and FN though it just seems to lack urgency. plenty of noise, but not enough pull for my liking.

    B18C4 on a skunk 2 in a Mini i drove went bloody well, again, due to a lack of weight. I think the Vtec engines are brilliant, but just not gutsy enough to pull along a full sized modern car
