Atomic Carbon S4 of Chris Doughty

A while back we showed you the Atomic Carbon S4 which at the time was under development and because of that we werent able to see the bodyshell which was still in the prototype stage. Well with the new season fast approaching, former European Champion Chris Doughty who will drive the S4 this year has taken some pictures of his new ride complete with the all new S4 bodyshell. Similar to the Durango bodyshell, in the fact that it has not side pods, the S4 shell features two huge air scoops at the front that will be used to rush air into the electrics to keep them cool.
