A supercharged 2.4-liter Honda K24 inline-four mill that sends power to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The setup could make for a good track car, don’t you think? The actual car that this is fitted in, however, looks anything but.
That setup actually belongs to this 2017 Ariel Nomad Tactical, a beastly machine built by automotive manufacturer Ariel. This particular model pictured above is currently up for auction on BringATrailer.
The vehicle features a powder-coated matte forest green exterior finish accentuated with matte black fenders and body panels all around. Inside—although there really isn’t a full-fledged cabin here—the vehicle sports bucket seats, six-point harnesses, a center-mounted fire extinguisher, and weatherproof driver and passenger storage bags. An LCD display is mounted up front, and this provides information on speed, RPM, temperature, and fuel level.
Included in the package are a remote brake bias adjuster, an adjustable pedal box, and adjustable Eibach coilovers on all four corners. There are also dual 12-volt outlets and GoPro mounts added into the mix.
Moreover, there are Lexan side panels, a black bikini top, a light bar with four spotlights, and a winch equipped here. This Nomad also has a heated windscreen and sits on 15-inch Team Dynamics Motorsports black wheels shod in Yokohama Geolandar A/T tires. A set of BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires for improved off-road performance also come with the car. A full-size spare tire mount can be found out back. The vehicle supposedly has 3,600 miles (about 5,800km) on it, and the bid for it is at $30,000 (about P1.47 million) as of this writing.
What do you make of it? Would you pay a million-and-a-half pesos for this thing? Check out more photos of this Nomad Tactical below.
