Driving an Ariel Atom at top speed – above 220 km/h!!! i.e. 136 mph!!! – will leave you breathless! It promises “the most fun you can have with your clothes on” during your stag weekend in Budapest. The Ariel Atom is the third-fastest car in the world and probably the fastest you will have ever driven. It is unbelievably light and fast, it speeds like a savage motorbike and turns like a real racing car. However, this astonishing sports car is really beyond such comparisons.
The guide will meet your group at a previously-arranged time and location and the bus will turn up 30 minutes later. We will transfer you to a venue 40 km from Budapest city centre where your adrenaline-supercharged test drive of a lifetime will take place. On arrival you will be given instructions, receive your crash helmet and than the test drive will begin. During the programme an experienced instructor will sit next to you and in any case of emergency will stop the car.
