Pic of the Week: Going atomic at the 'ring

One Ariel Atom, one V8 and one very famous corner



Those of you who followed Dan's liveblog from Germany the other week will remember that a certain Mr Chris Harris was also there at the same time, doing his video thing on both the Noble M600 and the outrageously hilarious Ariel Atom V8.

You'll be able to see the fruits of his video labours on PH in the next few weeks, but for now please allow us to titillate you with this ever-so-atmospheric shot of the Atom negotiating the fearsome Karusell.

Alternatively, if you don't like the look of the Atom and would prefer something else in the place of it, it does seem a prime shot for some tongue-in-cheek photoshoppery. But we'll leave that one up to you lot...

Happens when you are a small volume manufacturer building a car from scratch rather than buying in major components

Is the windscreen a no cost option? Do they do a wraparound?

On the Atom? Yes, the windscreen is an option, although not "no cost". It comes with the "gun site" piece of perspex and if you pay more money, you can have a proper wrap-around glass windscreen with wipers/washers/etc.

Let's have a laugh. What's the piece of perspex cost then?
