Default Ariel Atom in Mumbai! UPDATED: Detailed PICS on Page 5

Yes boys, it is true! Mr. Raymonds has done it again! He was spotted drifting it around Nariman Point yesterday!

He's got a Ariel Atom in the country & AFAIK it is the first one! Must say, it is one of my favourite cars & hopefully it'll be the full fat 300bhp supercharged version!

So all you Bombay boys, keep your cameras ready & get some pics for us!

I have a pic of this when it was in Delhi last week. A friend of a friend took it. Well, I assume it's the same one. Pic is just under a week old if I'm not mistaken.

That's not a supercar, it's a damn racecar! I like his choice of cars....S2000, Elise, Gallardo, Skyline and now the Atom.

Expect it to storm the '09 speedrun.

Woah. Didn't think I'd see one of these in India. Is the car road-legal here? Would love to see some cop faces if he ever decides to drive it around Mumbai's streets. Also, how come the car's got front and rear wings? Never seen those before.

Awesome!
Imagine the shock the Mumbai police are going to get when they see this. I wonder if they even know if a car called the Ariel Atom is produced anywhere in the world. Take it out and you'll surely be stopped for a modified exhaust.
The ACI Performance Show is just over a month away. I am expecting and looking forward to seeing this car there.

I just love this car! It does 0-100 Kmph in just 2.6 seconds and has a top speed of 249 Kmph, and you get all this for just 29000 pounds.

This car was in Gurgaon, saw it in the night outside my home and my friend was following it in his car. We had no idea what car it was. I guess Patel Auto guy got it as he lives near my place.

On paper it does. It would take some 'Stig' like skills to shift perfectly .
