In Ariel They have become disheveled again, which coming from the British firm can only be good news. The latest craze from the creators of the Ariel Atom and the Ariel Ace motorcycle is the Ariel nomad, a powerful buggy of about 240 horses and a contained weight that make it a real toy for adults.
Articulated on a spectacular multi-tube chassis With the minimum body inches, we find a two-seater buggy that perfectly adapts the philosophy of the Ariel Atom to the offroad world. A basic concept car made by and for fun, light and simple that we couldn’t like more.
It has a length of 3,215 mm, a width of 1,850 mm and a height of 1,425 mm, being its wheelbase of 2,348 mm and its weight of 670 kg. Its angle of attack is 71 degrees and its angle of departure is 82 degrees.
Mechanically the Ariel Nomad is accompanied by a Honda i-VTEC mechanics with an aluminum block of 4 cylinders and 2.4 liters developing a power of 238 horses (235 bhp) at 7,200 rpm with a torque of 300 Nm at 4,300 rpm, using a 6 speed gearbox for transmission.

Its cycle part is in the hands of shock absorbers signed by Bilstein, while Eibach She is in charge of the docks. Its brake discs have a diameter of 240 mm on both axles and its rims are 15 inches with 235/75 tires.
In its spartan cabin we find a couple of backets, an alcantara steering wheel, an LCD display acting as instrumentation and a sports bottom bracket. Of course, its vocational vocation, even if it is off the asphalt, is more than evident in every detail.
Lots of extras to season the Nomad
Ariel makes everything available to those who want to get an Ariel Nomad a large repertoire of extras that go from elements to reinforce their sportier vocation such as bigger brakes, adjustable suspensions (Ohlins or Bilstein), harnesses with FIA homologation or competition tires to comfort elements among which we find 12v power outlets, a TomTom navigator, bluetooth or heating.
In addition, for those who want to personalize the car, beyond improving its performance or comfort, they have a list of extras among which we find carbon fiber elements (such as the hood, the instrument panel or the seats) or new terminations for the exhaust system.
