Wow! Thats an amazing addition, i remember JC's face when he was ripping it on the Top Gear track, something completely out of the ordinary!

@ecksreturn: another one to think about on the weekends??

Fantastic machine. Thats an awesome choice of car. It would nice to see a different car from the Raymonds stable this time at the ACI show and the Speedrun. The Atom will be fun at Kharghar next year. Awesome

Taj Mansingh, hmmm.....wonder what he's doing there in the day! Lunch at Machan perhaps!

It should be road legal, I don't see an issue with that. And the wings are optional extras, can be ordered in bare Carbon fibre or the contrasting body colour.

awesome!! this is one of my fave cars.I'd even considered building a car similar to this but nothing beats the original. the ktm car is what comes close by.
but, I must admit the rear spoiler messes up the look a lil bit.

If the speed of the car is anything to go by, that must be one speedy lunch. Yes, the Mansingh.

When i first learned about the Atom/carterham/caparo/other cars with insane power to weight ratio, i was like, damn this is awesome but no one in India would buy one, I stand corrected Times are changing.

Hmm the Atom in India...Well the owner is not known to be the most practical person, oh well...Wonder what would happen when the tyre meets a pothole at 100 odd KM/h [He's gonna go faster I know], and the tyre has to convey the same greeting to the suspension...HMMM

Food for thought that is.

Great car to look at, just so impractical that I would never think of owning one...
