SYDNEY: Ariel Motor Company has introduced new model named Ariel Nomad which will be showcased at Auto-sport International in January.

Described by Ariel Motor Company boss Simon Saunders as being the “Atom’s mucky brother”, the new two-wheel drive Nomad comes with a significantly higher ground clearance and has chunky tires suitable for off-roading. The off-road vehicle also benefits from a long-travel suspension and features a complex rollover protection along with a reinforced chassis. Ariel has been testing the concept model with 15-inch alloy wheels in 235/70 tires, but the production vehicle will get a wide variety of wheel + tire combos.

Ariel Nomad performance is believed to come from a Honda-sourced 4-cylinder 2.4-liter tuned 200 bhp (149 kW) with six-speed manual gearbox also provided by the Japanese company, the vehicle also come with a mechanical limited slip differential offered as standard equipment but more high-tech systems will be available at an additional cost.

Ariel Motor is estimating a curb weight of 700 kg (1,543 lbs) and Ariel Nomad price below the £30,000 ($46,700 / €38,300) mark.
