Wow. That's some tenacity to convert dream into reality. All I can say is I didn't even notice the Jag and Merc in on of the pictures. Only realised these two cars after reading one of the comments. The replica is that commanding. Well done and all the best with the new assignment. Looking forward.

Amazing job Ezio Riddhi. It really is a Mad Max. Unbelievable, I can't trust my eyes looking at the Car.

Usually when I see a modified car or a bike, I look for perfection as to the design, details on engine placement and accessories used in modification. This one stands out. Really can't believe, you guys have achieved making this awesome Ariel Atom at that garage. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your narration. Superb

Please post a video of the vehicle in action.

Take a bow gentlemen.

Kudos and best wishes.

Hello. Congrats on your build and your work of craftsmanship is excellent from what i can gather from these pics. Just a query I've been itching to know. To be road-legal does it not require homologation? Did you register the vehicle at the nearest RTO? Do cops not bother you for the absence of number plates?

They not only design the cars, but also manufacture quite a significant portion of them as well.
Yes. Every year, close to 100 cars are built for Supra SAE India competitions and 100 more for BAJA SAE India competitions, by college students. These cars are pitted against each other in full fledged endurance races which is really challenging and lots of fun.
These sort of competitions bring out the best of creativity in our students and judging by the progress in quality year on year, we can safely say that this skill is only growing manifold.

I would like to get in touch with the creators of Ariel Replica, to create Ariel Nomad replica.
I have following questions to them.
1. Which vehicle to cannibalize (Donor Vehicle)
2. How they solved suspension mount point issues.
3. Ride and Handling and road manners.
4. Steering and Seating position
5. What was their budget.
