2020 Rezvani Hercules 6x6

A 1,300-Horsepower Beast That Costs Almost Half-a-Million Dollars

If I were to ask you to name a six-wheel-drive truck a few years back, chances are you could recollect just one – the Mercedes G63 AMG 6x6. Even the non-enthusiasts were aware of its existence. But, lately, the scene is changing and there are a lot of 6x6 trucks available. Hennessey has not one, but two – the VelociRaptor 6x6 based on the Ford Raptor and the Mammoth 6x6 that’s based on the Ram 1500 TRX.

However, there’s another new entrant from Rezvani Motors that comes with insane performance figures and a sky-high price tag. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting to you, the Rezvani Hercules 6x6!

2019 Rezvani Tank X

Automaker’s new SUV builds on what is already one of the most menacing models of its kind

Rezvani has come out of its lab with a new version of the Tank SUV, called the Tank X. The body of the Tank X remains the same, but underneath the imposing facade lies an engine option in the form of a 6.2-liter, supercharged, V-8 engine that’s been tuned to produce 707 horsepower and 710 pound-feet of torque. The Tank X starts at $259,000, though given Rezvani’s massive options list, that price tag could just as well say “your mileage may vary.”

2018 Rezvani Beast Alpha X Blackbird

Not driving fast, just flying low

Rezvani Motors was originally founded in 2014 in Orange County, California. In May of 2015, Rezvani released its very first model - the Rezvani Beast, a low-weight supercar based on the Ariel Atom. The company has released a series of new models in the years that followed, including an SUV called the Rezvani Tank, and now it’s introducing a new top-of-the-line iteration of the Beast called the Alpha X Blackbird, which sits atop four other models, including the Beast, Beast Alpha, Beast X, and Beast Alpha X. Rezvani says this latest model is even more hardcore than those that came before, once again combining impressively low weight and high horsepower to make for the “quickest, most powerful vehicle Rezvani Motors has ever built.”

2018 Rezvani Tank

This California company will turn your Jeep Wrangler into a 500-horse monster

Rezvani has only been around since 2014, but has already created some spectacular supercars with outstanding performance. There’s the Beast, the Beast Alpha, and the X version of both. Now, the small automaker is getting into the SUV game. Not surprisingly, its idea of an SUV is just as outlandish as its definition of a supercar. Meet the Rezvani Tank. As the name describes, this SUV is all brawn and bravado thanks to its buff body, massive wheels and tires, and powerful V-8.

The Tank also lives up to its militaristic appearance. It comes with FLIR thermal imaging, standard night vision, a head-up display for the driver, LED off-road lighting, and optional ballistic armor. Yet, under its skin, the Tank is a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Yep, open the front door or the re-hinged rear doors that now open suicide style, and you’ll see an interior that’s straight from the Wrangler. Of course, Rezvani does plenty to upgrade the Wrangler’s internals, making the six-figure asking price seem a bit more reasonable. The Tank’s ties to FCA and Mopar continue under the hood, too. That 500-horsepower V-8 is none other than the 6.4-liter Hemi found in the SRT versions of the Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Nevertheless, the Rezvani Tank is an original design living atop a Wrangler, which is unquestionably the most iconic off-road vehicle sold today.

2017 Rezvani Beast Alpha

2017 Rezvani Beast Alpha

The U.S.-based sports car brand releases fourth product in just three years

The Rezvani Beast came to be in 2014, less than a year after Rezvani Motors was established in 2014. Developed as a street-legal race car, the Beast is based on the British-made Ariel Atom, using not only its lightweight chassis, but Honda Racing engine too. Much like any carmaker focused on track-ready, limited-production cars, Rezvani focuses on creating various versions of its original sports car rather than developing new products. The initial Beast was followed by a Speedster version in 2016, while the 2017 model year brought the Beast X, Rezvani’s quickest and most powerful vehicle to date. At the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Rezvani unveiled yet another variant of the Beast, called the Alpha.

Although much of the styling is identical to any other Beast we’ve seen so far, there are two very important features that set the Alpha apart. First, it has a targa-style roof. Granted, it’s removable and turns the car into a proper roadster, but when in place, it provides the comfort of a regular coupe, as well as better aerodynamics. Second, the Alpha uses a

Lotus

derived chassis instead of the Ariel Atom underpinnings found in other Beast models. Third, the engine is turbocharged rather than supercharged. Finally, it comes with a rather unconventional door system, which Rezvani dubbed "SideWinder."

Despite the updates, it’s not significantly more expensive than the standard Beast ,which is a real treat given that the limited-edition Beast X had a nearly 60-percent premium. But let’s find out more about that as well as what makes the Alpha special in the review below.

2017 Rezvani Beast X

2017 Rezvani Beast X

Rezvani Motors was only founded in 2014, but in just a little over a year, the company has managed to successfully break into the market. Rezvani’s first offering was the Beast, a 500-horsepower, street-legal track toy that was nothing short of spectacular on the track. Rezvani is now building off of the success of the Beast and the subsequent Beast Speedster by introducing a juiced-up version of the track superstar. It’s called the Beast X, and as you’d expect, that “X” stands for something sinister.

Much like its predecessors, the Beast X carries the same

Ariel Atom

sourced chassis and Honda Racing engine, but its purpose is to obliterate anything in its path on the race track. That’s no easy task considering what the Atom V8 did to Jeremy Clarkson’s face, but the Beast X has both the power and lightness to give most supercars a run for their money.

On top of that, the Beast X marks the arrival of Rezvani’s new X division, which will be responsible for "the most extreme and exclusive high-performance tuning of Rezvani vehicles and motorsport." The company plans to release more X-badged models in the future, but until that happens, we’ll have a closer look at the quickest and most powerful Beast ever built.

Updated 11/24/2015: Rezvani announced the official details on the Beast X - the most powerful and exclusive Beast ever produced. It will be limited to only 5 units, each carrying a price tag of $325,000.

2016 Rezvani Beast Speedster

2016 Rezvani Beast Speedster

It’s been only a few months since Rezvani launched the 2016 Rezvani Beast, a 500-horsepower track toy aimed at established lightweight cars such as the 2013 Caterham Seven 620R and 2015 Ariel Atom 3S, and the American company has introduced a second version of its sports car. Meet the Beast Speedster, a less powerful but still exciting road-legal sports car that comes at a more affordable price than the standard Beast.

Designed by the same Samir Sadikhov, the Beast Speedster features everything the standard Beast does, including the engine, but output has been decreased significantly. But although it might not be as powerful and quick as the Beast, the Speedster does offer enticing performance that enables it to outgun sports car coming from more established carmakers. After all, it is also built on a chassis sourced from the incredibly fast 2015 Ariel Atom 3S.

As with the Beast, the Speedster’s secret lies in its low, 1,650-pound curb weight, carbon-fiber construction, and extreme aerodynamics, which allow it to deliver outstanding performance despite being only as powerful as a 2016 Nissan Maxima sedan. Keep reading for the full rundown.

2016 Rezvani Beast

2016 Rezvani Beast

There aren’t many outrageously aggressive road-legal track-day cars that are made in America, but there are a few. One of them is the new 2016 Rezvani Beast. While the name may sound a little juvenile at first, one look at the body, and you’ll be in agreement; this thing is a beast. The body itself is a combination of mean looks and aerodynamic dominance that provides just the right amount of downforce to keep this 500-horse “beast” on all fours. The body is designed specifically to allow air flow from the front air intakes, through the front wheel wells, into the inlets for the engine intake, and finally out the diffuser in the rear. The interior is all about business with two racing seats with five-point harnesses, a carbon fiber steering wheel, a digital instrument cluster, and a touchscreen audio system. The real news about the Beast, however, is the turbocharged and supercharged, Honda Racing engine that is hidden below that aggressive body.

At first, you might what to shake your head at an American-built monster with Honda power behind it, but don’t be so quick to dismiss it. This Beast can hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds on the way to a respectable top speed of 165 mph. Of course, you could be thinking “big deal, there are plenty of cars that can hit those kind of performance numbers.” And, you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong, but how many of them are made in America and are road-legal here in the U.S.? With that said, this is one interesting car, so check out our full review of it below.

2014 Rezvani Beast

2014 Rezvani Beast

Anytime you hear an upstart automaker promise the world and deliver little to nothing, you get desensitized with the hype these soon-to-be-unveiled exotics have. But something about Rezvani Motors is different, in large part because it’s just debuted a supercar with a ridiculously high bar attached to it. Rezvani is promising to shame other supercars with ’The Beast.’

Rezvani Motors has done a good job keeping the project under wraps up to this point, opting only to say that the Beast will make use of "lightweight racing technologies" to go with an engine that will "leave other supercars in the dust." Very, very strong words.

But if you’re thinking that Rezvani is drinking way too much hyperbole juice, the company remains unfazed about throwing out all these promises. After all, based on the newly released information and photos, the car might actually have a chance at stirring the supercar waters.

Whether it lives up to Rezvani’s claim that the Beast will be the "purest driving experience" on the market today is still up to interpretation. Maybe with these claims, it’s not unreasonable to expect the Beast to put down around 800-plus horsepower, right?

Updated 05/05/2014: Rezvani unveiled the first official details and photos on its new Beast supercar. Check them out after the jump.
