The Ariel range is continuing to expand with the British marque announcing a brand new supercharged variant of its potent Nomad off-roader.
Typically, the Ariel Nomad utilises a 2.4-litre Honda-sourced four-cylinder turbocharged engine which is enough to rocket to Nomad to 100 km/h in well under four seconds. For Nomad customers looking for even more speed and power, a belt-driver supercharger has been developed as an alternative to the turbo. It brings power up to 290 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque, representing 55 hp and 30 lb-ft increases over the turbo’d model. That additional power will see the all-terrain Ariel reach 96 km/h in 3.4 seconds and 160 km/h in 7.4 seconds.
The supercharged Nomad costs about 6000 pounds more than the turbocharged variant but importantly, customers who’ve already taken delivery of turbo’d models can have their cars retrofitted with the supercharger.
Erm , isn’t normal Ariel Nomad is natural aspirated ?
