The carbon fiber-bodied Rezvani Beast has returned in a behind the scenes clip from the official track shoot.

As if the standard Ariel Atom wasn't already a potent track machine, Rezvani Motors has decided to kick it up a notch by applying a carbon fiber body to make it look more like a supercar. Seen here is the range-topping Beast 500 controlled by professional racing driver Samuel Hubinette who was able to tame the 500 bhp (372 kW) coming from a supercharged 2.4-liter engine which enables the vehicle to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in as little as 2.7 seconds.

The power transfer to the rear axle is done through a six-speed manual gearbox wrapped around in a body that weighs just 750 kg (1,650 lbs). It rides on 19-inch lightweight alloys shod in Toyo tires while the stopping power is provided by Alcon four-piston competition brakes with race pads. It boasts an independent forged aluminum front & rear suspension with anti-roll bars and comes fitted as standard with Bilstein 10-way adjustable dampers on both axles.

Current Ariel Atom owners will be happy to hear that Rezvani Motors is offering a conversion kit priced at $69,900. Those who are interested in acquiring the Beast 500 outright should know it costs $139,000.
