Ariel Atom Mugen announced for the 2011 Autosport Show

It’s only natural that a company will want to commemorate the anniversary of its most successful vehicles. That is exactly what Ariel did in 2010, when it celebrated the tenth year since the release of the first model of the highly successful Atom series.

What did the company do? It announced a limited edition model set to pay tribute to the first Ariel Atom, which launched in 2000. The new model, called the Atom Mugen, was the result of collaboration between Mugen and Ariel.

Atom Mugen has, under its hood, a normally aspirated Honda K20Z Type R engine. This is consistent with Ariel’s preference for Honda’s Type R engines, which it used since the release of the Atom 3 in 2007. Mugen Euro’s branch in the United Kingdom will be responsible for tuning the Atom Mugen’s K20Z Type R engine in order to bring the engine to its full capability in the racetrack, which was where the development of the Atom Mugen was focused.
