A straight-line battle involving Ariel Atom 3.5, the Ariel Nomad, BAC Mono and the Caterham 620S brings plenty of assets and that allow it to deserve the status of the uber-special status.
For starters, this is the velocity gathering that allows one to notice just how many flavors British skeleton-type sportscar has to offer.
Come to think of it, well, the line-up we see here is the modern-day expression of a classic British roadster.
While the latter formula has been adopted by multiple automaker from other parts of this world, with Mazda’s MX-5 Miata being the most representative example, and not all that many companies have rushed to deliver thill-heavy contraptions such as the ones seen here.
Then there is the old-schoold take-off that means the element linking the pedals to a steering wheel can make quite the lot of difference.
Unlike the other three, the BAC Mono has the sequential tranny, but the one occupying the driver’s seat still has to work a clutch for the take-off phase. And, as anybody who’s taken part in the drag racing shenanigans knows, such the move isn’t easy.
Oh, and we mustn’t forget the unusual side of the brawl – and those who acquire such toys don’t normally use them for drag racing.
For one thing, last time we talked Caterham matters, we saw the Seven trolling another British missile, namely the McLaren 650S, on the Nurburgring.
Returning to the stunt we are here to discuss, the Top Gear-delivered sprinting adventure that awaits you behind a play button below sees the four lightweight weapons duking it out in the fierce battle.
In fact, things got so intense that the second run was needed to make things clear. This is where things went south, and we won’t get into the details, as we don’t want to risk ruining the fun of this video.
