The 2010 Ariel Atom 500 is a high-performance lightweight sports car made by the Ariel Motor Company.

It boasts a 32-valve 3.0L V8 engine made from two engines of the Suzuki GSX1300R and differs from other Atom variants by the addition of spoilers and a unique paint job.

It was put in a limited production run of 25 units.


Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)

The Atom 500 V8 appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012) following its announcement during an interview at E3 2012, and a later screenshot published on October 3, 2012.

The Atom appears as a Race class car. It can be found in various Jack Spots and is available from the start in multiplayer.

Because of a low mass, the Atom is capable of accelerating quicker than any car in the Race class and larger cars from other classes including the Lamborghini Aventador. The Atom has a responsive handling and is useful for drifting but can be difficult to control at high speeds.
