Default Paging topic, I want an Ariel Atom please!

Hi Sreten, How are you?..well I trust. I am wondering if you would do me a BIG favour please, for which I will pay you. I want to buy an Ariel Atom ultra sports car, made in the UK, Surrey? but I need to buy it there and for you, please to ship it to me in Sydney. An old , second hand one would do, the lowest price for me, the better! I'm retired...I will send u a cheque covering all your costs and freight, plus your fee of course. many thanks , grant...btw, my speakers turned out superb!, a 3 way active Behringer on open baffles...sweet as..

IF not, if anyone else in GB can get the dirt cheapest one, I would
be extremely appreciative! any idea of shipping?...5k Pounds? no idea really...any way thanks revheads!

5K - you'll be looking at 15k upwards.

An enthusiasts cult car, low volume and one that has a growing queue of customers worldwide.

The shipping would be around 5 - 8k on top.

Keep that dream alive - the newer ones with the Type R engine make real music

How much?

If you want to buy an Atom, you can go to only one place: (or call 01460 78817). Their used cars are mostly # Atom 2s,
and they have a 2004 example that has done 2,500 miles for 28,995.
Although claims that they could get an Atom for 19,995,
I have the strong feeling that this figure is wildly out of date.

I suspect you would be better off looking for a Caterham Seven in Aussieland.

I think this should be moved to the Car Audio forum.

I nearly dropped when I walked by one around MIT here in (this)Cambridge. Right paint job and all.

Wow, thanks everyone, especially Sreten. I have found the Caterham, Westfield , Bufori and Atoms in Oz..which seem all very close in performance, I think. The Atom, is faster than F1 Maclaren, and 2 in Sydney for $50au..very tempting. The Westfield and Bufori are made here, the Bufori is only $, then, I'll have too many cars, 2 Maseratis, a Daimler V12 and a Bufori (pic attached)

Clarksons vid of the Atom blew his face off...haha, and its < 20 th the price of a Bugatti Veyron, and is faster too! Awesome. Thanks all very much for your help...and best wishes, Grant, Hi softdomes...great name!
