After being previewed last year, a teaser image showing the reported production-spec 2016 Rezvani Beast has been released.
Compared to the original design, this teaser image showcases that the rear haunches and taillights will remain almost identical. With that in mind, it seems likely that the completed Rezvani Beast will be very similar to the pre-production model by the time it is unveiled in all of its glory this coming May.
When production of the Rezvani Beast kicks off, it will be based around the Ariel Atom with a complete body designed by Samir Sadikov, previously a finalist of the Ferrari World Design Contest. From a visual standpoint, the concept car looked unlike any other on the market with wheels clearly inspired by the twisting design from the Lamborghini Egoista and now mimicked by many aftermarket wheel manufacturers.
Two different variants of the Rezvani Beast will be produced. The first is dubbed the Beast 300 and it features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 315 hp and consequently, it can hit 96 km/h (60 mph) in a mere 2.9 seconds thanks to the mere kerb weight of 666 kg (perhaps this is why it’s called the Beast!). The second, and more potent variant, is dubbed the Rezvani Beast 500. It features a 2.4-liter supercharged mid-mounted engine delivering 500 hp and should hit 96 km/h in 2.7 seconds.
