Official Website of Rezvani Motors and the Rezvani Beast. The Rezvani Beast is made of carbon fiber, and can reach 0-60 MPH in 2.7 Seconds.
It's called the Rezvani Beast, designed by California builder Ferris Rezvani. Based on the, the Beast wraps a lightweight and stylish carbon-fiber body around the bare-bones track car, along with an interior that makes the Beast a more comfortable place to spend time on the road. (There's even an optional windshield, something traditional Atom buyers consider a buzzkill.)
"We wanted to get back to the basics," Ferris Rezvani told Yahoo Autos. "We wanted to get back to a raw feel, a car with real tactile feedback, with a lightweight chassis." And while the Atom is popular with people who want a track toy, Rezvani said it held little appeal elsewhere. "The Atom is fast up to 80 mph, but then it would hit a wall because of wind and aerodynamics. We can give this car a world-class design, but keep it ultralight and streamlined — make it appealing to road drivers."
By using carbon fiber for the body, Rezvani says the Beast maintains the Atom's performance with only a 200-lb. penalty for wrapping the frame. In top spec form, the Beast uses an upgraded version of the Atom's four-cylinder engine that's been given both a supercharger and turbocharger for a total of 500 hp, enough grunt to make the sprint to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. Rezvani will also offer a 315-hp edition, both using the six-speed manual of the Atom.
