Rezvani Motors is an automotive design and manufacturer of high performance super cars based in Irvine, California. Rezvani Motors was founded in 2014 by Ferris Rezvani. In June of that year, Rezvani Motors introduced Beast supercar based on the Ariel Atom that uses the Ariel Atom chassis with a lightweight carbon fiber body. It is American made using several British built Ariel Atom parts. The Rezvani Beast was designed by Rezvani who has worked on cars for Aston Martin, Ferrari and DBC. The Rezvani Beast aims to deliver a driving experince like piloting a fighter jet. In June 2015, Rezvani unveiled the production version of its supercar allowing customers to order the car with an 8-12 week production process.
A streamlined design provides maximum downforce. Under the direction of Rezvani Motors, award winning automotive designer Samir Sadikhov was able to create the Beast's stunning and aerodynamic look. The very definition of an aggressive, open top supercar, the Beast uses minimalist surfaces and low friction carbon fiber body panels to allow for the ultimate performance proportions and maximum downforce at high-speeds. These design techniques were introduced by Co-Founder Kam Hosn at the Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing conference in Detroit. The custom production uses custom fit 3D printing and CNC milling technology for an estimated 1,500 labor hours of work. CNC routing is used to make a 3D version of the car. The 3D print is used as a mold for the carbon fiber panels. Advanced 3D printers create other parts of the vehicle such as lights and mirrors.
In an age where many super cars rely on electronic aids, the Beast gives control back to the driver. Using a 2.4 litre 4 cylinder engine featuring a crank driven Rotrex supercharger and turbocharger and a manual gearbox, Beast sends 500hp to the rear wheels. Weighing in at a featherlight 1,650 pounds, Rezvani engineers were able to keep the car as light as possible using advanced materials such as carbon fiber and a carbon steel chassis from the Ariel Atom 3 that was significantly upgraded to be even more rigid. To 100Km, Beast can manage in just 2.7 seconds on to a top speed of 265Km. Rezvani used lightweight aluminum forged wheels wrapped in front and rear tires to further enhance performance and lightness. On the road or track, Beast proves to be one of the most responsive and best handling cars in the world.
The interior features carbon fiber seats, a carbon fiber steering wheel that weighs in at less than a Formula 1 steering wheel and Apple CarPlay, a first ever in the segment. The introduction of Apple CarPlay allows iPhone users to integrate their multimedia seamlessly into their vehicles. With the ability to send and receive calls and texts, Siri voice control software and music streaming, CarPlay further enhances driver utility.
Born on the track and designed for the road, the Rezvani Beast gives new meaning to the lightweight, high performance sports car, mixed with world class styling. The Beast is available for purchase price starting at $165,000. Current build estimates in an 8-12 week long period.
Unleash your inner beast and enjoy the 'Beast' on wheels made for the driving enthusiast.
