Ariel Nomad – The high-performance off-roader is here


    Ariel Motor Company has officially revealed the new Nomad, a model which will be showcased in January 2015 at the Autosport International.

    The new British model is described as the Atom’s “mucky brother” and features higher ground clearance, chunky tires dedicated for off-roading and a long-travel suspension designed for outdoor activities.

    Furthermore, the new Ariel Nomad has a complex rollover protection, a reinforced chassis and special wheels wrapped in off-road tires.

    According to some rumors, the new Ariel Nomad will have under the bonnet a Honda-sourced four cylinder 2.4 liter engine rated at 200 horsepower. The motor resources will be sent to the gravel via a six speed manual gearbox also offered by Honda. Last, but not least is the mechanical limited slip differential offered in standard.

    The upcoming Ariel Nomad will have an estimated curb weight at around 700 kilograms and a starting price of about 46,700 USD.
