The Ariel Atom is an ultra high-performance Exo-Skeleton 'cage' with an incredible power to weight ratio. It weighs less than 3/4 of a ton and has up to 700bhp, or 2.5 pounds per horsepower. 0-to-60 in 2 seconds. Top speed up to 185mph. Somehow, it's street-legal. It has fluctuated for several years to be the 1st, 2nd or 3rd quickest street legal production car in the world and has set the world's record for street acceleration and braking, from 0-100mph-back to 0 in less than 11 seconds. Picture that.
For comparison, the 427 SC Cobra set the 0-100-0 record at 12 seconds when it was released back in the '60s.

This guy gets to push his Atom around a lap of Germany's Nurburgring on a street car track day, well in excess of 170mph. Watch his key fob in the turns for G-forces.
I ain't jealous.
Much.

The black corvette also did pretty good for itself keeping up with the Atom and passing it on the road course (once). Very enjoyable to watch. :thumbs_up: 8) :mrgreen:
