    Top Gear put one to the test.



    And now its being released with a 500 HP V8
    Ariel Atom 500 V8 will hit 60 in under three seconds, blow past 100 mph in less than seven seconds.

    Makes you wonder if the Oil crunch is real or not. Who would drop millions into designing a 500 HP roller skate vehicle today. Definately a toy. Nice one too.

    According to OPEC there is no shortage of oil...just a bottleneck at the refineries because the oil barons have made record profits every year without upgrading their infrastructure.

    If fuel is an issue, someone has built an all electric version of the Atom

    Yes they do, but he is the one that makes me laugh most. I seen him on a different BBC show where they went to his home, he seems a very laid back and easy going guy.

    Captain Slow, he must put on an act for the show, no way could someone be that clueless about life, lol. He is funny as hell too.

    Now Hampster, he seems really cool, I would love to have a day or two to hang out with them, even Slow could come along for the day. Though Hampser loves American Muscle, where Clarkson doesn't. Though, when it comes to a road hugging car, Americas has yet to figure that one out, we are in the stone age in automotive performance.

    That makes sense, considering that American motorsports is obsessed with only turning left, or not turning at all.

    We have made a few valiant efforts: Ford GT40

    Seems like Clarkson hates all American cars and has a low opinion of Americans in general.

    Maybe, he would fancy stuffing his blouse, as did junior high school girls I knew who weren't quite yet ripe

    I wish I could Photoshop. That way, Jermine could get a set of braces and a necklace to suit
