Forced induction? What i dont like about the Atom is that in the supercharged versions all you can really hear is the supercharger.
but 375hp and i hear that it weighs less than the Eco-tec variant...basically its entertaining suicide

Crap, that thing will probably do a wheelie when you set off! Lots of grip plus V8 torque!

That V8 looks very...tidy. I like it.

Its a Hayabusa V8. 2 Hayabusa 1300cc bike motors. Those engines are sick, they put them in Caterhams and Radicals. The Radical SR8 that set a new Nurburgring record had one.

they are also found in certain Westfields as well if i'm not mistaken. Probably sounds pretty interesting

ducatis are L-twins so you would need 4 of them to build a V8 or in this case L8 anyway that would be hum well pretty insane (but I like the idea especially when you know that the brand new L twin from the 1098 ducati is developping 160bhp so 4 of them....640bhp :mrgreen: )


Back to topic: Since this V8 is from 2 hayabusa engine why not turbocharging it , ghost rider has managed to have 500bhp from one hayabusa engine..........so why not a v8 twin turbo Ariel atom with 1000bhp :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: .

I've heard about Hayabusas with over 700hp, so 1400hp from the V8 shouldn't be all impossible. Although I would probably try to fit it with awd before exceeding 400hp.

^ the driver would get deaf and probably melt if it had this much power.
