What Can I Expect

This Ariel Atom thrill is the stuff of dreams. This car is more akin to a four-wheeled motorbike, as it weighs in at just 500kg, pulls 600bhp per tonne and does 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds - and it's just waiting to be driven by you at either Elvington in Yorkshire, Three Sister Circuit in Wigan, Castle Combe in Wiltshire, Anglesey Race Circuit in Wales or Dunsfold Park in Surrey.

What's more, the car is lovingly hand built in the UK and it shows. It's a stunning creation that combines elegance and awesome engineering that is as close as you can get to driving a F1 car on the public roads. Built with no windscreen and no bodywork, you sense that the Atom is a real drivers' car and as you hurtle around the track you can see every finely tuned piece of mechanics at work, from the steering to the brakes.

With a 325bhp supercharged 2.0 litre Honda VTEC engine hiding just behind your seat, you will love the feeling of acceleration, perfect handling and all out speed as you take to the track for your four driving laps. Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson described his Ariel Atom drive as 'driving nirvana' and 'off the scale of excitement', we think you'll love it too... Ariel Atom experiences are also available in other areas. Another popular and amazing gift idea from IntotheBlue, please visit our gift experiences section for some great, inspirational ideas for all the family.
