Summary

  • Starting rank: 1050
  • Hidden MAX rank: 1242 (+192)
    • The car does not have any MAX upgrades, but 10 Pro Kit levels instead.
  • PRO rank: 1372 (+130)

  • Upgrade Rank Percentages: 10/40/10/40
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +49
  • Nitro Efficiency: 6/8/10

Performance

The Ariel Atom V8, as a lightweight vehicle, sports amazing acceleration. It has a strong nitro boost coupled with an extremely high nitro efficiency. The downside of the Atom is its mediocre top speed as a result of its large emphasis on nitro, resulting in 227.8 mph/366.8 km/h of total speed, also partly due to its high starting rank. It also has a rather stiff, if not average handling stat, compensated by a very sharp drifting radius. However, this results in frequent "over-steering" of the Atom.

Adding on to that, with its weight of 1433 lb (650 kg), the Atom is a relatively fragile car, with a tendency to wreck easily. While not every collision is a guaranteed wreck, players should expect more wrecks than usual while driving the Atom.

The Atom is a competitive Class D car if one does not have the Mazda RX-8 or Hyundai i30 N.

The Atom can be considered as an alternate version of the Porsche 959, with a lower nitro stat.

Official review

This is the official review of the Ariel Atom V8 on the Asphalt YouTube channel, made by ReV_Tez and published on February 28, 2018:

Time to reach end of Tokyo straight: 8.316s

Perfect nitro duration: 13.002s

Triple nitro duration: 10.131s

French Guiana lap time: 1.12.633

Final verdict: "Although The Ariel Atom V8 is not the new King of D Class, its overall performance is terrific. It is a great alternative to the Mazda RX-8, however it requires 68 V8 engine cards which is excessive. The highlights of this car would be its acceleration and nitro duration!"

Usage

Events

The Atom is never seen in the top 100 in general Class D TLEs due to the great affluence of the Mazda RX-8 and Hyundai i30 N. It is, however, better than the SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI and Donkervoort D8 GTO.

Multiplayer

With the prototype multiplayer matchmaking, the Atom was one of the best multiplayer cars with its exceptional acceleration, nitro efficiency, and drifting.
