Video: Top Gear pits Ariel Atom V8 against Lexus LFA, Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, BMW S1000 RR

While it may not be a practical vehicle, the Ariel Atom V8 is (should be) every car enthusiast’s dream come true. Weighing in at only 1,200 pounds, the Ariel Atom is powered by a 3.0L supercharged V8 engine making 500-hp – in layman’s terms… it is blistering fast and can possibly kick an supercars… well, you know.

Top Gear‘s Captain Slow, aka James May, recently took out the Ariel Atom V8 for a test-drive and put it up against the new Lexus LFA from Japan, the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. He also ended up having a one-on-one battle with the BMW S1000 RR.

Check out the awesome video after the jump.
