TMI AutoTech, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the 2013 Ariel Atom 3 incorporating numerous exciting changes and updates to the North American market for the already well developed and proven Atom 3 supercar.
The 2013 Ariel Atom 3 will provide newly offered standard features that will augment both function and performance. In addition to new standard features TMI AutoTech, Inc. is excited to release new options that will continue enabling our customers to uniquely individualize building the vehicle of their dreams.
A high function digital dash that has been well proven within the popular Spec:RaceAtom race & track-day car has been adopted for full use within the Atom 3. The Atom 3 driving experience will be enhanced by a new built-in dead pedal and an anatomic steering wheel. Multiple gear shift knobs are also being released to provide improved cockpit ergonomics and individuality.
Looking from the outside - the 2013 Ariel Atom 3 will offer new standard color choices for both the chassis and body panels while also providing a subtle bonnet design change that will visually set it apart from previous Ariel Atom 3s.
Function and aesthetics are not the only changes for 2013. Performance is always a priority when referring to any Ariel Atom 3 and we haven’t overlooked that important aspect of the new car. The Honda 2.4L engine will once again be offered providing smooth, reliable power with outstanding torque output in standard naturally aspirated form. A soon to be released supercharger option for this engine is now being developed and tested by TMI AutoTech that will be offered to Ariel Atom 3 buyers seeking maximum performance. In addition to a significant horsepower increase, the 2.4L supercharger option also provides the highest torque rating to date for any Ariel Atom 3; 20 ft/lbs more than the previously used 2.0L supercharged engine option.
The 2013 Ariel Atom 3 chassis will incorporate additional chassis bracing and stiffness to enhance the car’s platform as well as the function and effectiveness of its push rod suspension system. Rounding out the performance changes are the use of 4-piston brake calipers on all corners of the vehicle as standard equipment. Bespoke lightweight magnesium wheels are once again an available option – a great compliment to the above chassis and braking upgrades.
The 2013 Ariel Atom 3 is the next evolution of the already iconic Ariel Atom supercar. “Building on our experience over the past 5 years as a manufacturer of this exciting vehicle has allowed us to listen to clients, while at the same time put ideas to the test immediately on our backyard test track- Virginia International Raceway” explains Mark Swain – V.P. TMI AutoTech, Inc. “The 2013 Ariel Atom 3 is a product that comes from evolution.....from our clients, as well as a company built by driving enthusiasts”
