Small tweaks and a berserk Honda powertrain make the near-perfect Atom lighter, faster, and better

They are quick.

I am a little dissapointed though. When we talked to them last year they mentioned about lowering the entry price of the III. Looks like it's even more expensive now.

They are very impressive car but 85k seem a little on the steep side.

I want them to sell me the frame and suspension (not for 50k though) and I'll supply my own engine and wheels.
Cool car, but way overpriced.

I'd love to drive one.

I'm with everyone else however. 85k is a lot of money to spend on a supercarged civic engine powered go kart

Economy wise, I'm surprised they aren't doing this as of yet, but stay tuned.
