Ariel Atom Blog
Welcome to the Ariel Atom Blog.
The Ariel Atom is “Barely Legal” insanity. In my opinion, one of the very finest cars ever created, thankfully available in the USA so that I could get one. With a 0-60 sub 3 seconds, it’s been likened to a combination of driving and cage fighting! The reality is it’s a very drivable car when not being hammered, but you absolutely HAVE to drive this car as being casual with the handling can quickly become an “entertaining moment”
If you want to eat burgers while listening to a rock station in climate controlled comfort, this is definitely not the car you should be considering. It is a car built to be driven – exhilarating, committed, joyful and astonishing. It is a true supercar at a fraction of the amenity-laden other supercars’ costs. Hey, when it’s not being thrashed, it’s about as economic on fuel as a Prius!
This Blog is about how the Atom came first into my knowledge and awareness and then incredibly into my actual possession! I hope you enjoy the site.
I recently partnered with Elon Musk’s solar company. We are looking for purpose-driven entrepreneurs to participate in the solar boom. Click below to learn more.

The Braille Rallye 2010
Astonishingly we have reached August and it was time for the Braille Rallye 2010. I am very grateful for the opportunity to enter the Ariel Atom in this event as it is a wonderful way to enable very cool students to experience vehicles they might otherwise never be able to do.
Winning the Rallye is very much second to getting to know your blind or partially sighted co-driver and have a ton of fun.read more
Two New U.S. Ariel Atom Dealers
Exciting times for Ariel Atom owners and those aspiring to be Ariel Atom owners as two new Dealers are announced in the USA! One of these is an NHRA Hall of Fame Driver who, among other things was the first 1/4 miler in the 4 second bracket and held both Land and water dragster records at the same time! Only fitting that he’s an Ariel Atom and not a Prius Dealer then! :>)read more
Track Day at Willow Springs
The Streets of Willow was the venue for a track day organized by Sector 111 Motorsports. There were seven Atoms there in all including a brand new Atom 3 that was accompanied by Mark Swain and Shawn from TMI.
An excellent day of fun and learning for me and I got to feel and see (when my eyes were open) how an Atom should behave on the track.read more
