The Ariel Nomad Just Got A New Supercharger And A Crazy Horsepower Boost

Engine

Here's how fast the ultimate off-roader is now.

The Ariel Nomad is easily the craziest street-legal off-roader ever created. For those who have forgotten or just don’t know, the Nomad is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder Honda engine good for 235 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. That’s mighty powerful when you consider the fact that the Nomad weighs in at just 1,474 pounds. While that power is just fine for normal people, Ariel decided to create a version of its off-roader for the truly insane by adding a supercharger to the mix.

The supercharger bumps the engine’s output up to 290 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. Official performance figures haven’t been announced as of yet, but the “regular” Nomad did the 0 to 60 mph sprint in just 3.4 seconds so the supercharged version should be a wee bit faster. The supercharger costs an additional $9,270, bringing the total to $55,623. That’s a lot for a crazy buggy but remember the Nomad is street-legal, so you can also use it as a daily driver, if you’re brave enough that is.
