Rezvani Beast Combines Barebones Design With A 500-HP Engine

Wow, that car is a beast. Not figuratively, either,  it’s really a beast.   The Rezvani Beast, in particular, an all-American supercar that embraces the barebones, back-to-basics spirit of older vehicles.

Built by Rezvani Motors from its Orange County factory, the open-top sports car does away with as much electronic aids as possible, giving drivers a car that allows them to truly experience the road. Despite the lack of digital interference, it’s still a serious performer, with the company claiming it’s “one of the most responsive and best-handling cars in the world.”

Decked in a carbon fiber body wrapped around a carbon steel chassis that’s based on the Ariel Atom 3, the Rezvani Beast weighs just 1,650 pounds, all while housing a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine putting out 500 horsepower under the hood. The weight and power combo, combined with the car’s meticulously-designed aerodynamics, allows it to race from 0 to 60 in just 2.7 seconds and hit top speeds of 165 mph. A six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive comes standard, although you can opt for a sequential automatic.

Inside, the vehicle stays true to the back-to-basics spirit, with none of the elaborate switches and dials you will find on regular supercars. Heck, it doesn’t even have padding on the seats, although it does support Apple Carplay, so it’s not entirely barren of modern amenities . Like much of the car, the seats and steering wheel are all made from carbon fiber.

    this reminds me of the car from 101 Dalmatians, or maybe the Batmobile! 500HP is pretty excessive, something tells me i’d be getting in trouble driving this bad boy around lol! it seems really light considering it’s only around a ton and a half. i never heard of this brand before, and the price is really up there–but for the power it seems appropriate. i noticed the driver in the video has a helmet on, makes sense! id wind up just keeping a car like this on the track. i know for the Bugatti Veyron, which last time I checked was the most expensive and fastest car in the world, has two settings so that you can toggle between on-road and on-track mode’s so to speak so you don’t get in trouble, and also to keep it fuel-efficient or at least more reasonable than it would have been had the feature not been available.

    imagine taking this bad-boy down the beach! you’re right, looks like a real-life bat-mobile. i love the design, and haven’t seen cars like this since they made the little hot-wheels toy cars. 165K isn’t terrible for a super-car, and i like that they custom design it for you. the turn around time doesn’t see too ridiculous either considering what you’re getting versus what you’re paying for. 0 to 60 in less than 3 seconds is unheard of! can you imagine taking this bad boy on the highway haha? they should start making state-police cars out of the same materials and brand so they never have to struggle again, and can pick off speeders all day long with ease. the metallic look is really sweet, and you can tell it’s built to go fast and be light since its made from carbon fiber–think, airplanes! i like how you can opt for automatic or manual, but does that mean you couldn’t this with a sort of Tiptronic setup then?
