While it remains to be seen if production of the Rezvani Beast has commenced, it seems apparent that singer Chris Brown has just taken delivery of the car.
Brown recently posted up a couple of press pictures of the Beast on his Instagram and more recently posted the image above of the Beast posing alongside his matte black and silver Rolls-Royce Wraith. It is also believed that Brown is preparing to have the Beast featured in his latest music video.
Due to the Beast’s underpinnings, it is essentially an Ariel Atom with a bold new body. As such, it utilises the Atom’s available 2.4-litre Honda Civic sourced four-cylinder engine force fed with both a supercharger and turbocharger. As a result, the Rezvani Beast pumps out a total of 500 hp. All of that power is sent to the rear wheels via a traditional manual transmission believed to feature six-speeds.
Due to the range of new body panels not traditional found on the Ariel Atom, the Rezvani Beast is slightly heavier than its donor car. As a result, it sips the scales at 748 kg which is 136 kg more than the Atom. Despite the added weight, the Beast will still accelerate to 100 km/h in a very impressive 2.7 seconds as well as a 266 km/h top speed.
Design wise, the Beast has been penned up Samir Sadikhov. The front end is characterised by slim headlights as well as gaping wide air intakes and prominent air intake surrounds. Bold front wheel arches are also featured as are two large cutouts in the elongated bonnet. Elsewhere, a small windscreen is found as are sharp wing mirrors.
