to create the new Atom 3.5. The major changes include LED front and rear lights, a new interior, and more rigid chassis. 

The Atom 3.5 has new LED projector headlights and LED taillights; Ariel reformed the car's hood, but the details are slight. 

The biggest change to the Atom 3.5 comes from Ariel learning that drivers are using their Atoms on the roads more than they used to. The 3.5 takes chassis upgrades previously only the on the Mugen Limited Edition and V8 applies them to the standard car. The new chassis is stiffer and offers more torsional rigidity.

four-cylinder engine still produces 245hp, but the supercharged version gets changes to the intake, engine mapping and fuel system to produce 310hp, which is a 10hp boost. 

Inside, things are still quite bare, but there is a new LCD display for speed, RPM gear indicator with built-in programmable gear shift lights and an optional data logger. 

Ariel builds all cars to order, and the series 3.5 Atoms are available now. We are waiting to here from Ariel's US importer to learn when American buyers will get the cars.
