The car comes equipped with a 3.0-liter V8 engine that produces 500bhp at 10,600rpm and 284 lb-ft of torque at 7,750 rpm. The Ariel Atom V8 key to speed off the line is the power-to-weight ratio of 909bhp per tonne, which is more than 50 percent better than that of the Bugatti Veyron. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sports has achieved 644bhp/tonne. The Ariel Atom V8 weighs 550kg, manages an incredible 200mph and does 0-60mph in a claimed 2.3 seconds and 0-100 mph in just 5.4 seconds.

The drive is through a hydraulically activated Sadev 6 speed sequential race gearbox, which accounts for flat up-shifts and brings shift times to just 40 milliseconds. The LCD dash display displays the shift lights and current gear position. The uprated suspension features aerofoil section wishbones and pushrods. The aluminum monotube dampers come with remote reservoirs and the magnesium wheels help keep unsprung weight down.
