The Rezvani Beast, the company's first sports car based on the Ariel Atom.

Rezvani Motors is an automotive designer and manufacturer of high-performance supercars based in Irvine, California.[3][4] Rezvani Motors was founded by Iranian-American entrepreneur Ferris Rezvani, one of the designers of Vencer’s Sarthe supercar[5] who formerly worked with Aston Martin, Ferrari,[6][7] and DBC.[8] The company's main product is the Rezvani Beast,[6] a self-funded project by Rezvani.[9]

Rezvani Motors released the Rezvani Beast.[1][10] Rezvani Motors' vehicle production is done in a 50,000-square-foot facility RAD is operating in Santa Ana, California.[9] In May 2015, Rezvani Motors released details and photos of the Rezvani Beast.[11] In June 2015, Rezvani unveiled the production version of its supercar[12][13] allowing customers to order the car with an 8- to 12-week production process.[14][15]

Chris Brown purchased the first Rezvani Beast in 2015 for $200,000. The car was used in the filming of Brown's single "Liquor."[16] The 500 horsepower street-legal race car has no doors, no roof, and weighs just 1,650 pounds.[17]

International pop super star Enrique Iglesias chose to drive the Rezvani Beast Alpha in his music video hit El Bano that has been directed by Iranian director Ali Zamani.[18]

Rezvani unveiled its extreme utility vehicle named TANK [19] in November of 2017. TANK is designed to be a military style truck for the road. Some of the key features the TANK offers are as follows, optional ballistic armor bullet proof to B4 and B7 Levels, glass and all opaque armor, firewall, bomb protection, reinforced suspension, Military Runflat Tires, Intercom System and the TANK is powered by a 6.4L V8 Dodge Hemi engine [20] and on demand 4 wheel drive. The TANK [21] has more advanced options such as a thermal night vision system, bullet proof glass rated at up to Ballistic level 7 (high caliber weapons including armor piercing rounds), composite armor around the passengers, a rear tack dispenser, electrified door handles, magnetic dead bolts, blinding lights, gas masks, hypothermia kit, hidden radiator, and kevlar wrapped fuel tank. The Rezvani TANK is built in the US in Rezvani’s Irvine, CA plant. The Rezvani TANK has a offload suspension system designed by FOX racing suspensions. Jamie Foxx [22] is an owner of a TANK along with Rampage Jackson [23] and Chris Brown have also purchased the TANK. [24]

Products[edit]

Beast[edit]

Rezvani Motors was founded in 2014 by Ferris Rezvani. In June of that year, Rezvani Motors introduced the Rezvani BEAST supercar based on the Ariel Atom[7] that uses the Ariel Atom chassis[25][26] with a lightweight carbon fiber body.[27][28] It is American-made using several British built Ariel Atom parts.[7] The car has a six-speed manual transmission with a rear-wheel layout.[29] The windshield is removable[30][31] and the car weighs approximately 1,650 pounds.[1][32][33] The custom production uses custom fit[10] 3D printing and CNC milling technology[8] for an estimated 1,500 labor hours of work.[6] 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.[4][34] Advanced 3D printers create other parts of the vehicle such as lights and mirrors.[34] The first Beast will be delivered to an owner in Texas.[35]

Beast X[edit]

To top the Beast, Rezvani Motors introduced their next supercar: the Beast X. Still street-legal, the Beast X weighs in at 1,850 lbs, with 700 horsepower.[36] The car boasts a 2.4-liter motor with Borg Warner turbochargers, which helps it hit 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. Only 5 Beast Xs will be produced, with an anticipated price tag of $325,000.

Beast Alpha[edit]

In November 2016, Rezvani unveiled the Beast Alpha[37] as an upcoming version. The Alpha will add Rezvani's newly patented "Sidewinder doors",[38] a hardtop, power windows, power locks, airbags, and full climate control.[39]
