The engine is that of a Honda Civic ! But it goes 0-60 in 2.8 secs, only second to Bugatti Veyron (2.5 secs) and a full second faster than Porsche Carrera GT (3.8 secs). But the top speed maxes out at 135mph. More: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/ariel-atom.htm.
s18000rpm said:ya, but being the fastest is not the BIG thing.
its the OVERALL PERFORMANCE that counts.
Carerra GT & Enzo Ferrari are the things to beat. 8) they go freakingly fast in corners.
how many cars did Porsche & Ferrari launch as their flagship Super Cars after Carrera GT & Enzo respectively?
American cars are known for their straight line speed, thats it, only one thing evrything else is the HYPE.
by the time this Aero TT (lame name for a SC) & Veyron get thru 2nd corner @ tracks/roads like Nordschielf (Nurburgring), Carrera GT & Enzo would be ATTACKING 6th corner
[btw see some Ferrari FXX (Enzo's brother) videos in youtube.]
