We’ve written about small sports activities car-maker Rezvani earlier than, makers of the Beast, a automotive owned by Chris Brown and a few small variety of different, lesser people, I suppose. Now Rezvani is making an SUV, and, along with their teaser photographs, we’ve some spy pictures of the particular automotive.
The SUV is named the Rezvani Tank, and shares the Beast’s hyperbolic, over-compensatory ultra-macho naming scheme. Rezvani doubles down on the chest-beating by calling the automotive a “Army-Impressed Tactical City Weapon” of their teaser press launch.
Right here’s extra from that press launch:
Orange County, CA., – In lower than every week, Rezvani Motors will debut its most succesful car to this point: the Tank. Alongside the Beast and Beast Alpha, the lineup can be joined by a military-inspired, purpose-built, excessive utility car loaded with succesful options each inside and outside. Its look, penned by award-winning designer Samir Sadikhov, is the primary of its sort in practically 25 years.
Because of a body-on-frame design, a world-class suspension system, and big off-road tires, the Rezvani Tank will include critical off-road chops. Below the hood house owners will discover a highly effective 6.Four-liter V8 producing 500 horsepower. Non-compulsory options like a thermal/night time imaginative and prescient digital camera and ballistic armor safety can even be accessible at launch, amongst others.
“We needed to supply a contemporary design for a purpose-built, rugged, off-road succesful car that was muscular, effectively proportioned, and model new,” says CEO Ferris Rezvani. “The design was impressed by excessive off-road ideas typcially by no means seen on the highway, however is totally avenue authorized and prepared for manufacturing.”
I’m guessing that 6.Four-liter V8 is a HEMI crate engine, and people headlights in that teaser shot look type of like Camaro lights, partially blacked-out by the bezel they’re mounted behind. I could possibly be unsuitable, but it surely’s fascinating.
Rezvani has solely launched that teaser shot and a few renders of the future-dystopia-looking SUV, however a reader we’ll maintain secret snapped some photographs of the automotive at a Fiat seller in Southern California.
It undoubtedly has a concept-car look about it, and appears to have first rate floor clearance and breakover angles, in order that’s good. Rezvani is taking $1,000 deposits should you suppose you must conduct some city warfare of your personal, and should you do don’t neglect there’s an choice for ballistic armor and night time/thermal imaginative and prescient cameras, which ought to are available in very useful.
No point out is made from a crotch-level panel that may be opened so the driving force can wave their dick round, however I think about that’s an choice, too.
Chances are high the Tank gained’t be low-cost, and I’m fairly skeptical that anybody who buys one will really take it off-road, since a low-volume automotive like this implies substitute physique panels are probably a pricey indulgence.
This appears much more like one thing you’d roll round Beverly Hills or Miami in in case your self-image was fragile sufficient to advantage such a protecting shell.
I’m type of burnt out on the entire tactical city weapon bullshit, but it surely’s a minimum of a novel-looking factor and a singular different to a Hummer or one thing, I suppose.
