Rezvani Terrifies Us With Talks of a 700-Horsepower Beast X
Last week, start-up supercar company Rezvani introduced the Beast Speedster. It was a less powerful followup to the original 500-horsepower version. We were on hand for the reveal, and while speaking with CEO Ferris Rezvani and designer Samir Sadikhov, the pair let us in on a
little big secret. A 700-horsepower Beast X is coming; the X definitely hints at performance.
Currently, the Rezvani Beast platform uses the chassis and engine from an Ariel Atom. The tuned Honda Racing K24 motor sports a supercharger yielding 300-horsepower, entry-level Beast Speedster, while a "twin-charged" (supercharged and turbocharged) Honda engine sits under the hood of the 500-horsepower Beast. Each comes with a 1,700 pound curb weight—but neither will compare to what Rezvani has in store with the Beast X.

For the new car, Rezvani plans to drop the supercharger, and add a set of Garrett-supplied sequential turbochargers. According to Revzani, this setup will boost the total output of the Beast X to over 700 horsepower (!). This would give the lightweight track car a power-to-weight ratio better than a modern Formula 1 racecar, and even the mighty Bugatti Veyron.
But the Beast X won't just get a new set of turbochargers, it will also get a whole new look. More inlets, intakes and the addition of a rear wing and front splitter will add the necessary downforce to keep the lightweight car glued to the pavement.

Unfortunately we we're not able to pry pricing information from the Revzani CEO. The Beast Speedster and the more powerful Beast come in at $139,000 and $159,000, respectively. Based on that spread, we estimate the Beast X to come in around $179,000. Though, it's just a guess at this point.
Until we can tell you more, stay tuned. And come back on September 21st to read our full review of the Rezvani Beast Speedster.
