It used to be a £3000 deposit, then half before the chassis was ordered and the remainder on collection.

Yes it is still exactly that, the deposit isn't transferable to someone else either if you changed your mind.

That is absolutely stunning - I might put down a deposit, although i have zero patience!

I’ll look out for you in Berkshire

Well played!

Its a little under 3 year waiting list FYI. But the car is rather special. It is a proper weapon!

I’m waiting for my email to spec, car number 130 ordered Sept 18. My spec is almost identical to yours. Not sure about carbon though and I’m going titanium frame with titanium or black wheels.

Awesome it’s a painful process finalizing the spec, I added and removed things many times haha, I can honestly say i wouldn't change mine in anyway spec wise though so you won't be disappointed, the carbon is nice and pretty good value too, if you want a couple of photos let me know.

Your combination sounds nice, I love the Titanium frame as well, please post pics when the wait is over, here are a couple of pictures of mine.

Best thing you'll ever drive, i've had some fun cars but this is honestly something else.

One question if you don’t mind.

What was the reason going for the rear towing eye? I was planning to get the front one.

Also, did you not go for the three stage boost control, any reason why not?

Thanks
Andrew

Hello Andrew.

I am based in Swansea in South Wales. When is your car due to come?

I went to the factory and discussed the options with Henry and that was the one best suited to me, I only wanted the towing eye incase I do track the car and I go off track and I need to be towed out, I wanted it to be hidden at the back rather than visible at the the front. If I do transport the car it will always be by trailer, I hope that helps?

I didn’t spec the 3 stage boost control because it’s only me driving the car and I would have left it on 350bhp at all times so it wasn’t worth it, a lot of the spec’s I’ve seen not many people go for that option, it’s surprisingly useable/easy to drive even in traffic at full boost.

Sounds genuine.

Interesting you ordered it over 2 years before it was released and you haven’t had it yet.

Ha wow, I stand corrected, that makes sense now I was wondering how it was 4 years as I ordered mine in July 2018 and I had it in January, the sequential box wasn't available when I ordered mine, it will be interesting to hear your feedback.

It looks amazing, I saw on the Atom forum the first customer car with the sequential box was due to be delivered this month, bad timing but it will be worth the wait I am sure.

Yes I have my car, I had it back in January there is a picture of it/the spec on this thread.

I have the 350 bhp power upgrade but I don’t have the wings they also weren’t ready when I finalised the spec.

Yes it well worth the wait, i can honestly say in the 280 miles I’ve driven, it’s the best car I’ve driven in terms of driver experience, even though it is a similar performance to some of my previous cars it feels crazy quick because you are so low down and you are exposed to the elements.
