Ariel Atom

Form follows function on the track, and if any car looks the part on this list, it is the Ariel Atom. The Atom looks like nothing more than a tube frame chassis and a small engine behind the driver, but there’s more than meets the eye.

Behind the two-passenger cockpit is space for a small-displacement engine, ranging from a 245-horsepower inline four-cylinder to a 3.0-liter V8 making 450 horsepower. The minimalist layout keeps weight down to an unbelievable 1,350 pounds, resulting in a 0-60 time of 2.7 seconds – one of the fastest such times ever recorded.
