The teasers are history now as Rezvani Motors released the Beast with a full set of pictures and a video to help us better understand what was going on in their backyard in the last couple of years.
Without further ado, get ready to shake hands with the Rezvani Beast, a lightweight supercar designed and built in California. Its makers claim the car "is born on the track and designed for the road" and stands for "the very definition of an aggressive, open-top supercar".

In more palpable terms, the Beast uses a supercharged and turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine good for 500 HP. Its exoskeleton (created by automotive designer Samir Sadikhov) is made out of carbon fiber and sits on a carbon-steel chassis provided by the Ariel Atom 3, but tweaked to offer more stiffness.

The translation of the above paragraph is a total weight of 1,650 lb (748.4 kg), allowing the supercar to blast from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, before reaching the top speed of 165 mph (265.5 km/h). Such figures look good in theory, and they should help Rezvani Motors' plans for the Beast.

“We really wanted to get people to enjoy driving again,” said Founder and CEO Ferris Rezvani. “By limiting as much electronic interference as we could, we were able to allow the driver to feel every inch of the road at their fingertips."

The car's connection to the asphalt is done via lightweight aluminum forged wheels wrapped in front 235/35/19 and rear 295/30/19 tires. On the inside, the Beast features carbon fiber seats, a carbon fiber steering wheel that weighs in at less than a Formula 1 steering wheel (300 grams) and Apple CarPlay.

Yes, fun does come with a hefty price, so anyone interested in taming the Beast will have to squeeze $165,000 and also keep in mind that current build estimates are between eight and 12 weeks.
