The Ariel Atom 500 is even more insane than the already outrageous Ariel Atom.

The Atom 500 V8 is powered by a small V8 engine. With nearly 500 horsepower in a 550 kg (1,213 lb) package the Atom V8 boasts one of the highest power to weight ratios ever for a production car, at over 900 horsepower per ton.

The Ariel Atom V8 project first began back in 2007 as a special model created in conjunction with RS Developments. The car features the same RS (Russell Savory) designed supercharged, 2.4 litre V8 engine connected to a 6 speed sequential Sadev gearbox driving the rear wheels. The gearbox has power-on shift capability, paddle gearchange with manual override as well as launch and traction control.

The Ariel Atom V8 is identifiable from the standard Atom by the twin rear intakes for intercoolers and unique anodized gold color scheme for the chassis and wheels and carbon fibre panels and carbon fibre aerofoils. Other features include chromemoly aerofoil wishbones, multi-function steering wheel, Alcon 4 piston caliper brakes and lightweight Dymag magnesium wheels.
