Ariel’s Nomad Is A Superb Little Off-Roader

If you know anything about Ariel, then you know that its experts leave no room for error when they design and manufacture the company’s unique cars. Just like the highly successful Ariel Atom, the Ariel Nomad is a sturdy, quick and lightweight four-wheeler that impresses with an original design complemented by outstanding performance.

However, unlike the Atom, the Nomad was made to tackle the world’s roughest roads, which is why it was equipped with an adjustable wishbone suspension, chunky tires and a powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder iVTEC engine. The engine develops 221 lb-ft of torque and 225 horsepower, allowing the Nomad to sprint to 60 mph in just 3,4 seconds before reaching its top speed of 125 mph.

Thanks to its minimalistic design, the Ariel Nomad weighs 1,477 pounds, and it does not have a traditional roof or doors. Instead, it is equipped with a phosphate and powder-coated visible tubular steel frame .

Each incarnation of this powerful little car will be made entirely by hand by a single technician in Somerset, England. The Ariel Nomad will cost about $42,000.
