Rezvani, a boutique exotic car coach builder from California, has unveiled a lightweight sports car based on the Ariel Atom.

The Beast, as it is called, is available in two configurations: with a 315-horsepower 2.0-liter engine or with a 2.4-liter 500-horsepower engine. Both versions feature a rear-wheel drive layout and a six-speed manual transmission.

The Rezvani Beast will also feature a fully removable windshield, a roll cage, and a set of RS05 PUR wheels wrapped in front 235/35 R19 and rear 295/30 R19 tires.

It has been designed by Samir Sadikhov who has previously created the Aston Martin DBC and Ferrari Xerzi concepts.

Exterior Design

According to Rezvani, "the Beast is the very definition of an aggressive, open-top supercar with minimalist surfaces and ultimate performance proportions".

Beginning at the low-friction front fascia, the body lines extend out to create a streamlined appearance. Paired to angular rear panels, air flows over the car to provide maximum downforce at high speeds.

Rezvani Beast: Engine

Thanks in part to its 1,550-lb curb weight, the Beast 500 can excel from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. The Beast 300 can reach 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds, and it tips the scales at a featherlight 1,470 lbs.

Power comes from either a 2.0-liter turbocharged, or 2.4-liter supercharged mid-mounted engine that can produce up to 315 and 500 horsepower respectively.

Both engines are prepared by Ariel Atom specialists DDM Works of South Carolina.

The high-output engine is paired to a limited slip six-speed manual gearbox, and a rear wheel drive layout. All with minimal electronic interference that provides drivers with tactile feedback and extreme response.
