    Yet you never drove it...

    Curious why.

    Looks like it would be a blast on certain roads... PCH,... Dragon's Tail,... Sea to Sky (Vancouver to Whistler),...

    Ariel Atoms are surprisingly roomy inside. I had an Atom 2. It had the Recaros, which were awesome.

    See post #5. That's pretty much street legal.

    My Atom 2 from Brammo was titled and registered in Pennsylvania. Ongoing annual vehicle inspections were more of a hurdle though.

    A title doesn’t make something street legal. A tag does.

    It’s street legal - have title. If it wasn’t street legal it would only be a bill of sale.

    Don’t drive it much because I’ve never tagged it , insured it or driven it outside our gated neighborhood . While it’s a lot of fun , it’s just not for me. I’m a little too out of shape to climb in and out and it’s really meant to take to a fun road course . I’ve fortunate to have lots of fun options and it’s just not ever bubbled up to the top.

    My offer was in jest; not because of the purchase price but because financing a car for 15 years doesn’t seem smart.

    Im a serious buyer for this car also, but I haven't been able to convince myself that the low miles gets a $20k premium on price. My house is 8 minutes from Sonoma Raceway which has been eating me alive. I watch every track car that goes through BaT looking for the "right experience". This, the Mono, and Morgan give me the most excitement.

    My understanding , admitting I’m not an expert, is that not every AA are equal . This was a highly optioned 100k car in 2017 that I purchased for 89k. Do the BAT cars compare to this one as it relates a to options and condition?

    In general, yes.

    I regret not buying this one when it stalled out around $42k:
    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2007-ariel-atom-2-4/

    It was fully loaded with the roll hoops, Sparco seats, and carbon everything, including wheel arches. So actually more options than your car, although with an Ecotec engine instead of the Honda.

    But I had already had purchased and sold my Atom. I didn't need another.

    I think that someone should buy your cherry little Atom!
