I found my next car.
Ignore things like the driveway needing 4-wheel drive in the winter. For that matter, ignore any sort of driving in the winter. This, my friends, is truly a fair-weather car.
I present the Ariel Atom.
This thing is a street-legal car for two.
Just the thing for the couple on the go.
It’s a little car
I mean, really little
In case you were wondering, you saw right – no sides on the car
This one has a windscreen. I think they offer a full windshield. Optional.
It takes the car experience down to the bare essentials
You’re sure to draw a crowd
And you can just as surely drive away from them
Zero to sixty in under three seconds. Half the weight of a Mini Cooper. Road ready. And under $50K.
But Bettie won’t ride in it.
Bummer. Still looking for a car.
