The 2016 Ariel Nomad is an offroad buggy 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.||”|
The Ariel Nomad is powered by a Honda-sourced 2.4L (2,354 cc) iVTEC inline-4 engine with the power and torque rated at 236 hp (239 PS; 176 kW) and 221 ft·lb (300 Nm), respectively. The Nomad uses a steel tube chassis and a six-speed manual transmission.

Driving Characteristics Edit
The Ariel Nomad is the best-performing buggy in the game. Its powerful engine, combined with its extremely lightweight chassis, grant the Nomad a quick 0-60 mph time of less than 3.7 seconds and amazing handling through corners. Top speed is also the best for a buggy, with 148 mph (238 km/h). The car is also stable at moderate speeds, making it an overall good choice for Bucket List Challenges that require offroading.
Be careful when upgrading the Nomad, though, as the car will become far more unstable at high speeds, especially if upgraded to S1 Class or higher.
