Rezvani, the Californian firm behind the Beast and Beast X has unveiled its latest creation – the Beast Alpha. Essentially the hardtop version of last year’s model, the model gets not only a removable targa-style roof but a pair of ‘SideWinder’ doors.

While we can’t be certain how practical the fancy doors are (just look at how they are opened), they certainly to give the Beast Alpha some character. As for motivation, the car uses a turbocharged K24 DOHC 2.4L engine (Honda-sourced) that churns out 500 hp, mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

As the car weighs just 884 kg, it will make the 0-96 km/h (0-60 mph) sprint in just 3.5 seconds if you opt to row your own gears. Opt for the sequential automatic gearbox instead, and you’ll shave 0.3 seconds from that sprint time.


Open up the minivan-like doors, and you’ll be greeted surfaces wrapped in either leather or Alcantara. Creature comforts include power windows, air conditioning, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, as well as a nifty race-inspired digital instrument cluster.

Ready to stand out from the crowd? Well, the Beast Alpha isn’t exactly what you call affordable as Rezvani is asking USD200,000 (RM881,530) for one. Surely those unique doors are worth that money, right?
