Ariel Atom turns cop car

The Avon and Somerset Constabulary has just bolstered its vehicle fleet with a new Ariel Atom 3.5R. Featuring a 350-horsepower 2.0L i-VTEC engine sourced from the Honda Civic Type-R, the car sprints from 0-100 km/h in a mere 2.5 seconds.

Despite its small footprint, the Ariel Atom has been equipped with all the devices and systems traditionally used by British police. It will play a key role in a new driver awareness campaign.
