Ariel Unveils Nomad Off-Roader

29 December 2014

Ariel, maker of the hardcore Atom open-wheeler, has unveiled a new off-road buggy called the Nomad.

The vehicle will make its official debut in January at Autosport International. Ariel boss┬áSimon Saunders describes the Nomad as the “Atom’s mucky brother”. The vehicle is two-wheel drive, but has been modified to handle off-road conditions. It has high ground clearance, chunky tyres and a long-travel suspension.

There is no official word yet on what will power the Nomad, but rumors suggest that it will be a Honda 2,4-litre four-pot mill that develops around 150 kW of power, and will be mated to a six-speed manual shifter.
