Ariel Motor Company has provided more details and images with the brand new Nomad, which will go on sale in the middle of this year, as the company is stating.
Originally previewed just last month, the brand new Ariel Nomad is finally here as the model has been officially unveiled.

This has received long travel suspension system, an increased ground clearance, additional rollover protection, larger alloy wheels wrapped in chunky tires and some chassis tweaks which have been made to it in order to allow it to handle some tough terrains.
Ariel says that the 240 mm braking discs are found on both axles and these are being covered by the 7J 15-inch wheels, wrapped in 235/75 tires, front to rear. The cabin has a two-seat layout, with 5 position adjustment, an LCD Digital display, water temperature, fuel level, odometer, trip computer, speedometer and tachometer.
