Profile

The Atom 3 has bought subtle changes to the trackday favourite. Ergonomically, you now sit more comfortably thanks to a restructure of the famous visible chassis frame. Under the bonnet, Honda have provided a new 4 cylinder from the Civic, albeit the same capacity and power as the previous powerplant. Performance is as expected - bonkers! 0-60mph in around 3 seconds and a 0-100mph-0 sprint faster than anything this side of a Veyron. The thrill is exhilarating but beware pushing too hard as the Atom can bite.

Probably not your first choice for the road but as a track day car there are few better.
