Supercars have always found its way to almost every boy's bedroom through huge colorful posters. Ferrari's, Lamborghini's and Bugatti's have helped each boy's imagination to be fast and free. A new player might make their dreams much wilder, as Rezvani shows off its new supercar, the Beast Alpha.
It has just been almost two years since American company, Rezvani, debuted their self-funded car, the Beast. A 315-horse power car made out of a 2.4-liter Honda engine and a chassis that is built from an Ariel Atom. This car features a sleek body that is made out of 100 percent carbon fiber that also makes it super light at only 1500 pounds. It is a two-seat car that can reach zero to 60 miles in just 2.9 seconds. Another variant comes with both a supercharger and a turbocharger that can reach zero to sixty in just 2.7 seconds, a time that puts it on par with other supercars, or probably even better.
The Beast Alpha Introduces New SideWinder Doors
At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Rezvani just revealed the Beast Alpha. It is equipped with a Honda K24 engine that puts out 500 horsepower. Zero to 60 miles can be achieved in just 3.2 seconds with the sequential automatic transmission. This supercar has a top speed of 175 miles per hour. However, the powerful Honda engine will not be the real reason why this supercar deserves to be put on a poster to be hanged in a boy's room wall, but the doors. People have always been amazed at Lamborghini doors that swing up when opened or with Tesla's "gull wing" door that borrows the same style as the famous DeLorean DMC-12 of the 80s. The unusual door designs give the cars so much more character than it already is and has been a big part in the world of supercars. Rezvani introduces the first ever "sidewinder" doors that open out and toward the front of the car, something that the world has not seen before. Bystanders will surely be stuck in fascination whenever they see you get out or in of the car.
A powerful engine, sleek, lightweight carbon fiber body and unusual sidewinder doors, are characteristics that clearly gives the car the status of a supercar. However, it may still no be enough as the car is going to be competing with other known brands that have already proven themselves over and over again. 500-horse power is more than enough but supercars like the Lamborghini Huracan, McLaren 650s, and the Porsche 918 Spyder are all packing more than 600horse power. These cars are also capable of going more than 200 miles per hour top speed.
Rezvani Is Just Borrowing Technology From Other Auto Makers
Almost all other supercars have also their own engines they boast of, unlike Rezvani that is just borrowing Honda's engine technology and aggressively tuning it. The company also does not have their own chassis and is only using a chassis from an either an Ariel Atom or a Lotus. The company also may be suffering from a slight personality disorder, as it is an American car that has Japanese written all over it once you pop the hood to see the engine. Nonetheless, the 2018 Rezvani Beast Alpha is still a remarkable machine capable of high and super fast speeds. It is still a sight to behold and will surely be fun to drive around town on a weekend or on the tracks.
