Meet Rezvani Beast Alpha X Blackbird with 700 HP
California- based automotive designer Rezvani is back and it proudly presents its another wild creation from Beast line of sports cars. This time it’s a 700-hp Beast Alpha version, named Beast Alpha X Blackbird. Unlike the manufacturer’s original Beast speedster with Ariel Atom chassis, the models from Beast line come with Lotus Elise chassis and they boast an aggressive body made of carbon fiber, which by the way was designed by Samir Sadikhov. Having debuted in 2016, the Beast Alpha was introduced to the world fitted with cool “sidewinder” sliding doors.
While the first production-ready Alpha boasted 500 hp, the manufacturer added a more moderate version in 2017, which had only 400 hp. Well, the newly- released Beast Alpha X Blackbird impresses with its 700 hp. Being that the car only weighs 2,150 lbs, this sports car sprints from a standstill to 60 mph in mere 2.9 seconds. What’s powering this beast is a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-4 developed with top engine builder Cosworth. What you might not know is Rezvani builds the engine from the ground up with the use of Carillo racing forged pistons, rods, cams, valve, springs and a Cosworth ECU. As for the inside the car, there are a few comfort features: air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and infotainment handled by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. With the price starting at $225,000, the Beast Alpha X Blackbird is offered with only a 1-year/unlimited-mile warranty.
