These are the superlative words of Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson who concluded that driving the Ariel Atom was 'off the scale' in terms of excitement and, we hate to say it, but we might just have to agree with him! We've currently got two suppliers offering you the chance to drive the Ariel Atom in York, Birmingham, Kenilworth or Stafford. It might look like a half-built Formula...
