Honda tuner Mugen finally revealed their highly anticipated tuned version of the Ariel Atom at the 2011 Autosport International show.

This Atom is powered by a tweaked version of the Civic Type-R’s 2.0 liter engine which instead of 240 hp, kicks out 270 hp and that makes a difference! Zero to 60 mph is now done in 2.9 seconds. It can also reach top speed of 150 mph.

Mugen has also tweaked the suspension and chassis with adjustable dampers or racing springs for better handling. The Japanese tuner will only make 10 units of this awesome British sportscar, and each is priced at 60,000 GBP. That’s a bargain honestly, compared to the amount oof fun and thrill the Atom delivers.
