Ferris Rezvani, the man behind interesting projects such as the Lotus Evora-based Buletta, has finally managed to take the wraps off his unique supercar, the Rezvani Beast. About a year after announcing the project, Rezvani Motors released the Beast into the world and is now accepting orders for the wonderful sports car based on the Ariel Atom.
The California-based company will charge you $165,000 for their vehicle, which is quite a lot when you compare it to the Ariel Atom. Moreover, the Beast will set you back almost $35,000 more than a Porsche 911 GT3 and just $10k less than a 911 GT3 RS. So, what do you get for that kind of money?
Currently available for public viewing at the official showroom, the Rezvani Beast will take 8-12 weeks to build. This Ariel Atom-based vehicle boasts an incredible carbon fiber body-kit designed by Samir Sadikhov, mixing some attractive features and lines inspired by other supercars on the market today.
Powering the Beast is an aggressively tuned version of the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine hiding under the Honda Civic Si’s bonnet. It now features a supercharger and turbocharger, delivering around 500 hp to the rear wheels. Weighing in at just 1,650 pounds (748kg), the open-top Beast will do 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 165 mph (266 km/h). Feel free to check out the video for more.
