It’s quite an occasion when something that emits pure motoring hits the decade mark, and that’s precisely the case as Ariel’s bare-to-the-bones sports car, the Atom, turns 10. To mark kick start the party, Ariel joined forces with Mugen’s European office to churn out a special edition (read: limited) model of the Atom.

Restricted to a run of just 10 units and set to hit the market in January 2011, the anorexic model will stand out courtesy of the distinct livery and will be signed by the Ariel employee that built the car and the Mugen techie that assembled the engine.

Ariel say the car will be more track-focused, like the base model isn’t already. Power will come from Honda’s K20A lump producing an impressive 270hp, which should satisfy the palates of even the most discerning track day junkies.

“The Type R Honda is the best 2.0-liter normally aspirated engine available. We have put our experience and know how to release even more power from the engine and we’re delighted to see our engine in the Ariel Atom,” said Vice President of Mugen Euro, Hiroki Toyoda.

Until the model is unveiled to the world at next month’s Autosport Show in Birmingham, we’ll just have to make do with a rendering of it.

car can be anywhere. for instance on the racing track, maybe?

i'm pretty sure this is a car. and i think go-kart also a car by definition.

any objection?
