This Carbon Fiber Beast is a Beauty!
When you combine the bare-bones chassis of the Ariel Atom – a road legal, high performance race car – with a carbon fiber body frame and an impressive interior design, the results are quite beautiful.
Rezvani Motors, a California-based startup auto manufacturer, recently unveiled its Beast 300 and 500. The brain child of designer Samir Sadikhov, the Beast is covered in carbon fiber with some similarities to a Lamborghini.
This vehicle is quite the beastly machine, powered by a custom 300 horsepower supercharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and weighing in at just about 1,500 pounds. The Beast 300 – a two-seater – can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds, while the 500 version with a supercharged and turbocharged engine can do it in 2.7 seconds.
Prices for the Beast 300 will start at $119,000 and $139,000 for the 500 model, however, existing Atom owners can have their cars updated for $49,000 and $69,000 respectively.
