Rezvani Motors first unveiled the Beast heading into the summer season of 2014, and just over 12 months later, the model is officially hitting the showroom floor. Meet the 2015 Rezvani Beast Carbon Fiber Edition.
When it comes to performance, the Beast lives up to its name in every way possible. Based on the Ariel Atom, the vehicle is packed with an aggressively tuned 2.4-liter four-cylinder sourced from a Honda Civic SI. The power plant has been both supercharged and turbocharged, pushing 500 horsepower to the rear wheels, and helping the vehicle sprint to 60 mph from a stop in just 2.7 seconds. The Beast features a carbon fiber body designed by Samir Sadikhov, and weighs just 1,650 pounds. The California-based brand says that each build takes 8-12 weeks, and is selling the model for $165,000. If you’re interested in seeing one in person, there is a Beast on display at the company’s Costa Mesa, CA showroom. [Purchase]
