The low-volume British carmaker has unleashed an even more extreme version of
its road-legal track car.
Like a standard Atom, the Atom 3.5R is powered by a supercharged inline-four engine from the Honda Civic Type-R, but in this instance it produces 350 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque.
Coupled with the car's weight (1,212 lb), the 3.5R is able to complete the sprint to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and to 100 just 3.5 seconds afterwards.
This increased engine performance is also met by an improved suspension. The lightweight 3.5R features bespoke Ohlins TTX36 dampers that can be optimized with springs for road, track or race use.
In the UK, the Atom 3.5R will be sold for 64,800 British pounds (around $107,000). A version with similar performance will reportedly be available in the U.S. later this year.
