Rezvani Beast Speedster: An Agile Homage

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Rezvani unleashed the production model Beast back on June 15, a wild 500 hp sportscar from America. Now, they have created a tamer variant focused on handling, light weight and agility: the Beast Speedster. Unveiled Sept. 9 in a press release, the Beast Speedster is said to channel “the history and performance of iconic roadsters past” and act as an homage to them.

Just like the original Beast, it comes with a body crafted almost entirely from carbon fiber, which sits on top of a modified Ariel Atom 3 carbon steel chassis. Also carrying over is the supercharged 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, but instead of 500 hp, like the original Beast, the Speedster has 300 hp. Even with the 200 hp decrease, the Beast Speedster can still manage a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds.

“We really wanted to put the emphasis on agility over speed,” said CEO Ferris Rezvani in the press release. “To compliment our 500-horsepower Beast, the Speedster focuses on handling, and pure open-top performance for the road.”

Inside, the new model also received a few upgrades. This includes leather padding for the carbon fiber seats, steering wheel and shift knob. Along with the reduction in power comes a more affordable price. While the Beast costs $165,000, the new Beast Speedster will come in at only $139,000.

What’s more, Rezvani also announced that a third Beast variant will be out before the year’s end. So, be sure to stay with us for more information as it is released.
