One of the fastest and craziest cars ever produced is sadly not in production anymore. With only 25 examples made, the Ariel Atom 500 V8 is indeed a rare beast.

But even with its departure, Ariel was able to recreate the wicked car via 1:18 scale model with help from Soul Models of Spain.

Like the real mccoy, it will also be quite rare as Ariel only commissioned 1,500 units to made. It is intricately detailed and has the car’s key features like the exposed lightweight steel frame, gold wheels, carbon-fiber composite body and builder’s plaque on the seat.

“We have been approached by a few model makers over the years but when they understand the complexity of modeling the Atom they have all given up at an early stage. We’ve been keen to see a scale version of an Atom so it’s great that Soul Models have taken on the task and produced such a great, detailed model,” said Simon Saunders, Ariel Motor Company boss.

It can be yours for GBP 149.94 (about PhP 10,090) and is available through Ariel Motor Company or Soul Models.
