The 2016 Ariel Nomad is an offroad buggy that appears in Forza Horizon 3 and Forza Motorsport 7.

The Nomad is based on the Ariel Atom.


When Ariel founder Simon Saunders brought the world the skeletal, Ariel Atom most asked, “What is it?” Upon discovering the Nomad’s track-destroying abilities and epic fun driving characteristics, now most just asked, “Can I have a ride?” The same goes for the Atom’s off-road cousin, the Ariel Nomad. Its steel tube chassis provides protection from everything but the elements. While its suspension is not quite that of a Baja-buggy, it’s plenty adept for everything off-road while still able to hang it out on a curvy road or track. Pushing the rear-end out of shape at the whim of your right foot is a Honda 2.4-liter engine delivering more than enough power for a good time. With the Nomad, you can make friends no matter where you go, and go anywhere they go.


Built on an Ariel Atom chassis, the Ariel Nomad is powered by a Honda-sourced 2.4L (2,354 cc) iVTEC four-cylinder engine with the power and torque rated at 236 hp (176 kW) and 221 ft·lb (300 N·m), respectively. The Nomad uses a steel tube chassis and a six-speed manual transmission.
