Vehicle description

Relisted due to non-payer. The listing say"s 1980, but only because needed a valid 17 digit VIN for any vehicle 1981 or newer. The Atom was first registered in North Carolina in 2012. Serious offers only please. Ariel Atom 3 with just over 1800 miles. I still drive it so it will go up slightly. Titled, inspected and road legal in PA. Has carbon fiber front and rear wings. . $7000+ option. I am the 2nd owner of this Atom, with the previous owner from North Carolina which is where it was originally titled in 2012 and a North Carolina VIN applied. see picture. I"ve owned the car for 18 month now and put 1000 miles on it. The previous owner is a successful business man with an extensive car collection and rarely drove this. To get it titled in PA some modifications were required such as adding DOT Approved side markers, reflectors, collapsable steering column, larger steering wheel (quick changeable), front and rear bumpers, heat shielding, etc. All of the modifications are done without detracting from the cars appearance and can be easily and quickly removed and the car will be back to original. This is a naturally aspirated version of the Atom (non turbo / non supercharged) with the Honda K20Z3 v-tec engine that revs to over 8000rpm, and the v-tec power kicking in at just over 4000rpm. The NA versions have a much more drivable power to weight ratio than the boosted versions which can be quick to loose rear end grip and result in a spin. With the K20Z3 engine this is still very much a fast, and fun car to drive and turns heads everywhere you go. I have a PA title on hand ready to transfer to new buyer. Please check with your own state for requirements to title an Ariel Atom before bidding or submitting an offer. Also have original steering column and steering wheel, which is not quick changeable but can be made to do so easily.
Please, genuine and serious inquiries only. I will not allow any test drives unless you have the cash in hand.
Previous owner never tracked this car and I have never tracked it either. Used for pleasure driving on summer nights and weekends or attending car meets / shows.
Please also check with your insurance company for insurance as most common insurance companies will NOT insure it. I currently have it insured through Rally Insurance and costs me less than $1000 / Year for full coverage, and thats with couple speeding tickets in last 3 years.
