I'm looking to do an extended test drive on an Atom to see if its something I could live with (already sold on the styling!)

Does anyone know where I may be able to hire one for a weekend to see how I'd get on with one?

Hi from sunny & COLD South Wales.

The general way people 'try' the Atom is to go for a short spin courtesy of someone local. Personally, I've not heard of anyone hiring out their Atom for a weekend. Track day hiring is another issue but you're looking at £1,200 + per the day.

I'm sure there's a few Atom owners local to you. Perhaps you could nosey over to the new Atom forum www.atomclub.com

Cheers

John

There's a new company which is called funcarhire.com - they hire out the Atom for a few days at a time

I seriously doubt it. More seriously I have not heard of anywhere.

Would you henestly let an unknown driver take out a 300 for the weekend...
I just couldn't imagine a novice or even semi experienced driver taking mine out on the public road... it's verging madness... The things a real handfull at the best of times once yuo get your foot down, and being dead honest its way beyond the talents of your average joe... I let my mate who i considered a good driver, he's always run me close whilst karting, drive it last track day... 5 spins later he said jeez that was scary and needs ALOT of respect...
Letting someone loose for a weekend in a 300 is simply going to end in tears...

Anyone else hiring these (road not track use).
Funcarhire doesn't seem to do it anymore (not on their site at least).

There is an Atom that's little 'turd' like, It was made (I believe) for the owner of a saudage factory smile
