It does have a windscreen. All ten square inches of it. :)

The windscreen is a fine demonstration of function over form...

Try driving one of these V8 babies. No windscreen and 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds given over 900 BHP per tonne power ...

The Ariel Atom 3 litre V8 with 500BHP is quicker than the 300BHP 2 litre version, which hits 0-62kph (0-60mph) in 2.8 seconds, has a power to weight ratio of 817+ BHP per tonne allowing a 0-60 in 2.3 seconds

A video of the Atom 500 being driven

Since when does 62kph = 60mph? I thought it was more like 62mph = 100kph.

If that is the worst thing to happen to you today, you're having a good one, aren't you?
