How Does The Porsche 718 Spyder RS Stack Up Against The Ariel Atom 4R?

The Porsche 718 Spyder RS epitomizes automotive excellence and stands as one of the finest sports cars of the 21st century. It’s the only RS-badged convertible from Porsche, featuring a 493 brake horsepower 4L Flat-6 engine, analog cabin, and a flawless 7-speed PDK gearbox for an unparalleled driving experience.

In a contrasting pursuit of automotive exhilaration, the Ariel Atom 4R emerges as a daring contender. Weighing only 700 kg and equipped with a tuned Honda Civic Type R engine generating 400 brake horsepower, the Atom 4R defies conventional road car norms with its raw, unapologetic adrenaline rush.
