Sneak peak of the Race of Champions cars for Barbados?

With the names being announced thick and fast for the 2014 Race of Champions in Barbados nothing has been mentioned about the cars they will be driving.

Barbados Motorsport obtained these shots of some Ariel Atoms being built with the distinctive Race of Champions livery. The question is, are they supercharged? Are they V8s? Are those the tyres they're going to be using? Either way, at close to 500bhp/tonne they should be spectacular!

The Race of Champions always tends towards rear-wheel drive cars and sometimes four-wheel drive, previous years have seen the Ariel Atom Cup cars used before, so it is no huge surpise that they may be appearing again.

Word is, the cars get to stay on at Bushy Park after the event so we may be seeing a number of Atoms available for drives in the New Year!
