Performance

The Ariel Atom V8 is the highest-ranked vehicle in Class D without Elite tuning. However, the Atom V8 cannot compete with the Mazda RX-8 or Hyundai i30 N. If those two vehicles are not included in the vehicle selection, the Atom V8 will likely be the best Class D vehicle available.

The Atom V8 has an abysmal raw top speed of 165.9 mph / 267.1 km/h, lower than the Cadillac XTS's 166.2 mph / 267.7 km/h. However, combined with its large nitro boost of 61.9 mph / 99.7 km/h, the Atom V8's total top speed is reasonably high at 227.8 mph / 366.8 km/h.

Although the Atom V8 is technically slower than an additional five vehicles in Class D, (seven in total with the RX-8 and i30 N), the Atom V8 is the overall 3rd-best vehicle in Class D with its rapid acceleration, tight drifting & handling and excellent nitro efficiency.

The Ariel Atom V8 competes with the nanoFlowcell QUANTINO, Donkervoort D8 GTO, Porsche 959, Mazda 6, Buick Avista Concept, SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI and Honda S2000.

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!"

Events

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

Multiplayer

During the tentative multiplayer matchmaking of the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Atom's exceptional acceleration, nitro efficiency, and drifting made it an effective alternative to the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition. With the Fast Lane Update, the Atom was made competitive again and rivals the ED Design Torq and McLaren M14A
