Santa Ana, California based Rezvani Motors has just unleashed its second model, the Beast Speedster. By channeling the history and performance of iconic roasters, Rezvani’s latest addition pays homage to the lightweight, open-top sports car movement of the 1950s and 60s, but with a modern twist.
Like its big brother, the 500 horsepower Rezvani Beast, the Beast Speedster’s lightweight, carbon fiber body only weighs 1,650 pounds. The attention is clearly focused on handling.
The Rezvani Beast Speedster was designed by Samir Sadikhov, whose minimalist approach to styling provides agility through each corner with an ample amount of downforce.
A 300 horsepower, 2.0 L supercharged, 4-cylinder engine gives the Beast Speedster a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. The lightweight Speedster can hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
“We really wanted to put the emphasis on agility over speed,” said Ferris Rezvani, CEO of Rezvani Motors. “To complement our 500 horsepower Beast, the Speedster focuses on handling and pure open-top performance.”
Compared to the Beast, the interior of the Beast Speedster receives minor upgrades.
They include: minimalist leather padding on the ultra-light carbon fiber seats, steering wheel, and shift knob. A four-point safety harness keeps the occupants safe during high speed driving and cornering. Apple CarPlay connectivity is also included as a standard feature.
The Rezvani Beast Speedster is currently on sale and has a starting price of $139,000.
