Rezvani releases the limited edition, 700-hp Beast Alpha X Blackbird.
Rezvani made a name for itself making sports cars but now it has added an SUV to its lineup. Tank is based on the current Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but it isn't propelled by the Wrangler's V6. The Tank's styling certainly fits in with the company's supercars.
It's powerful and expensive.
Don't worry, you can add the stuff back as expensive options.
Oh, and it has 500 horsepower.
Ferris Rezvani revealed exclusively to Autoblog plans for a fixed-roof coupe version of the Beast as well as an ultra-rugged SUV, both of which are slated to launch sometime later this year.
The Rezvani Motors Beast is ready to go on sale. The low-slung sports car features an Ariel Atom-based chassis that's covered in a carbon-fiber body. The 500-horsepower supercharged and turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder should provide plenty of power to move its 1,650 pounds.
Last we heard of Rezvani Motors and its Beast, we were still recovering from our St. Patrick's Day festivities (note: green beer in every iteration means pain). Back then, it was a mere photo that introduced us to this new, California-based company, although the promises of that photo - sharp bodywork and what looks like a pushrod front suspension - were enough to get us a bit excited about the latest exotic startup.
"What the world needs now," sang Jackie DeShannon in the Sixties, "is love, sweet love." We tend to agree, only by "love, sweet love," we mean supercars. Because as many as there may be out there, "it's the only thing that there's just too little of."
