Ariel Atom V8 from Two Suzuki Hayabusa Engines

V8 made using twin hayabusa engines

The Ariel Atom normally comes either with a supercharged Honda Civic Type-R K20 or a supercharged 2.0L GM Ecotec engine but Ariel is working with Hartley Enterprises on developing a V8 using two Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle heads. The engine is estimated to make 500 horsepower and redline at 10,000 rpm. Of course that kind of rarity and power doesn’t come cheap. The engine is estimated to cost $50,000.
