Rezvani Beast X-2

California startup company Rezvani has unveiled its latest beast, quite literally. Called the Rezvani Beast X, it’s based on the company’s original sports car, with the ‘X’ denoting a new division under the brand, tasked to bring about the most extreme and exclusive high-performance tuning of Rezvani vehicles.

The Beast X measures 4,145 mm long, 1,981 mm wide and 970 mm high and it has a wheelbase of 2,345 mm. The two-door is built with a carbon-fibre body, while underneath it, sits a carbon steel (chromoly steel) chassis. In addition to that, the car sports a 42-litre fuel tank.

Not just designed to look aggressive, with a revised front and rear fascia for a fearsome look, the Beast X’s exterior is aerodynamic as well. It features side wings to give it added downforce, while in the back, dual carbon-fibre wings have been fitted to reduce drag and improve handling.

Although heavier than the Beast and the Beast Speedster (both 748 kg), weighing in at 839 kg, the Beast X makes up for this in terms of power. Pushing it forward is a custom K24 DOHC 2.4 litre engine with forged pistons, valves, strengthened internals and a pair of Borg Warner turbochargers and an intercooler.

Transmission-wise, the sports car comes with a choice of either a six-speed close ratio manual with limited slip differential or an optional sequential automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. In total, the rear-wheel drive Beast X produces 700 hp at 7,350 rpm and it goes from 0-96 km/h in just 2.5 seconds.

Suspension-wise, it gets an independent forged aluminium with anti-roll bars and Bilstein 10-way high performance adjustable dampers for the front and rear. Stopping power is provided through Alcon four-piston competition brakes and race brake pads. The Beast X wears 19-inch wheels wrapped in either Continental SportContact 5P tyres or Toyo R888/Proxes R888 (front).

Only five of these hi-po Beasts will be built and each one goes for USD$325,000 (RM1.38 million). According to the brand, purchasing one will also allow owners free access to a few tracks around the United States. So guys, if given the choice, would it be this over the more expensive 900-hp Fenyr SuperSport?
