This Is What Happens When You Drive An Ariel Atom 3.5R In The Wet

If there's one car that wasn't designed with English summer rain in mind, it's the 350 horsepower Ariel Atom 3.5R. Then again, if you happen to have one on a rainy day, what can you do?

Back in May, Evo Magazine had a problem, if you can even call it that when we talk about having an Atom 3.5R with a full tank of gas on an empty race track. So, instead of setting lap times, the British weather turned the event into a wet dream of any petrolhead.

The 3.5R is better than a "standard" Atom 3 because it's got more power, a clever suspension and a six-speed sequential gearbox. It's the best Atom yet, and what's more is that it's actually not as bad on a soaked circuit as one would imagine. As long as you have waterproof clothing...

You certainly can't get closer to mother nature than this on four wheels.
