A New American Supercar Emerges, Meet The Rezvani Beast
As you probably have already guessed, Rezvani uses the Ariel Atom as the platform for his own automotive creation, the Beast. The Ariel Atom is notorious for being a bare-bones, stripped-down track car that will either thrill drivers and passengers or cause them to be completely traumatized.
To create the supercar, Rezvani wraps a carbon fiber body around an Atom, giving it a stylish yet lightweight makeover that leaves the popular performance car virtually unrecognizable. The interior of the Atom is pretty much nonexistent, which gave Rezvani a blank slate to create a relatively comfortable place to sit and enjoy the thrilling ride.
Buyers can even add a windshield onto the car, but it is an option that will cost extra. Of course having a windshield is something hardcore Atom owners scoff at as they show off the bugs caught between their teeth.
Before you start to say that Rezvani created a car that absolutely kills what the Atom is all about, consider this: the carbon fiber body only adds about 200 pounds to the car’s curb weight. On top of that, the Beast adds a turbocharger and supercharger to the Atom’s four-cylinder engine, boosting output to an amazing 500 horsepower.
According to Rezvani, the Best can go from 0 to 60 in just 2.7 seconds. If that’s not thrilling, the price is. The automaker says it will charge a base price of just $120,000 for the Rezvani Beast. If you want one, though, you might have to get in line since production will likely top out at 10 units per year.
