This incredibly beautiful and fast Ariel Atom 3 Turbo, Carbon Fiber Edition, is one that I ordered for myself, to be used as my own company car and Ariel dealership demonstrator. No one other than me has driven this car, since I received it from the factory.
The MCO (Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin) comes with the sale, and the car has never been registered or titled, so the buyer will be the first registered owner.
In my ten years of street driving, racing, and selling (I have sold twenty six of them so far) these fantastic cars, I have developed what I consider the ultimate specification/option list for an Atom to be used on the street and on the track. So I ordered this one with ALL the high-end options, planning to keep it forever for my own use.
This Ariel has the most horsepower and the most traction available from the factory, the lightest (Carbon Fiber) bodywork, and with the brakes I prefer for track and street.
Why am I selling it, and why the ~$10,000 discount for only ~700 miles? My life situation has changed.
My sweet wife has blessed me with a Mercedes twin turbo V-eight, 7-speed paddle shift roadster for the street, and a Pro Formula Mazda road racer for the track. So I am no longer going to be racing (or selling) Ariels, once I sell the five I currently have in stock.
An additional reason for selling so many of my inventory and collection, is that I have been blessed with being approved for the purchase of one of the new Ford GT supercars, in the third year of production. So to get ready for that possible purchase, I plan to offer for sale this Atom, two drag boats converted to two-seat lake or river boats capable of over 125 mph, my Ultima Can-Am roadster, and my remaining four Ariel Atoms.
You can Google "Eddie FourFather Hill" for info on me.
VIN NOTE: On the VIN, eBay would not take the Ariel's actual number, so I used all 0's. The actual VIN or serial number is AA30214 and it is on a metal tag affixed to the front firewall to the right of the driver's throttle foot, as pictured in the included photo. While legal road registration of Ariel Atom 3 vehicles may be possible within various North American jurisdictions, any such road registration is strictly an individual buyer/owner responsibility.
The MCO (Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin) comes with the sale, and the car has never been registered or titled.
This Ariel stays in my air conditioned garage/showroom, has never been outside over night, and about the only way you can tell that the car has been driven is the little paint dings where the sticky tires pick up and throw grit or pebbles on the side pods and the front of the rear fenders. That is pretty much unavoidable, but it is easy to remove and repaint those items. Helicopter tape might work to prevent paint dings in those areas, but I have not tried that.
The factory performance figures are:
0-60 MPH: LESS THAN 2.8 SECONDS
Virginia International Raceway full course @1:58

The Atom is in Wichita Falls, Texas, and I will be happy to show the car and give a demo ride to a qualified and serious buyer, BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. The Atom is garaged/shown at my race car facility, NOT at my Eddie Hill's Fun Cycles, Inc. downtown dealership.
I don't have video of this 365 HP Turbo Atom on track, but here is how my 300HP Atom accelerates against a field of single-seat race cars.
And, for anyone with any interest, here is a race track video interview with Ercie and me.
