340 PS Ariel Atom 3 tuned by Wimmer RS

Wimmer RS has tuned one of the fastest street cars, the Ariel Atom, which is considered by most of the people the strongest sprint 4-cylinder series car in the world. After the power increase at Wimmer Rs has been added, the 469 kg car not only keeps up with super sports cars, but it can also surpass them, resulting in a vehicle like a rocket.
Compressor overhaul, fuel pump conversion, sport exhaust system and Wimmer engine optimization software are reconstruction measures comprised in the power increase at Wimmer RS.
The result is 340 hp, 282 Nm, an acceleration from zero to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds and 200 km/h achieved in 7.1 seconds.
An exhaust system with optimized back pressure from Wimmer RS hides the entire power behind the seat, so the driver will hear a wonderful sound.

Extra power - high performance sports car Ariel Atom 3 300 by Wimmer RS


Wimmer RS has tuned the Atom 3 300 up to 340 hp


The Ariel Atom is one of the fastest street cars, maybe the strongest sprint 4-cylinder series car in the world. The standard Atom 3 300 is driven by a turbocharged up to 300 hp two-liter four-cylinder Honda engine. With a weight of only 469 kg, it can easily keep up not only with super sports cars - after the power increase at Wimmer RS it can put some of them in the shade.


A vehicle like a rocket: only 469 kg weight, no doors, no luxury. The Atom is equipped with the unique internal shock absorbers. The suspension is operated via push-rods - the damper struts are at the top. The tube frame replaces the body. This provides rigidity, low weight and maximum safety for corner speeds.


The power increase at Wimmer RS includes the following reconstruction measures: Wimmer engine optimization software, compressor overhaul, fuel pump conversion and sport exhaust system together with Rennkat. Whopping 340 hp and 282 Nm are the result. With such powerful Japanese engine in the rear, this 469-kg rocket accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds - Atom achieved 200 km/h in just 7.1 seconds


Direct air suction sounds like a hissing, and by this modification, exhaust system with optimized back pressure from Wimmer RS allows to hide the entire power behind the seat, so you will hear a wonderful sound.
