2017 Rezvani Beast Alpha Makes World Debut in L.A.

A formidable addition to the Rezvani lineup, the Beast Alpha makes its world debut in Los Angeles, California, and builds on the success laid out by the open-top, 500-horsepower Beast that was unveiled in 2015. Designed to provide the ultimate, unfiltered driving experience, the Beast Alpha introduces more features and more performance than ever before.

“We’ve upped the ante with the new Beast Alpha,” said CEO Ferris Rezvani. “After the success of the Beast, we knew that customers wanted even more. Designed to stir emotions, the Beast Alpha is that car… and then some, delivering a pure driving experience unparalleled in the market.”

  • 500-horsepower engine allows the Beast Alpha to achieve an unparalleled power-to-weight ratio, hitting 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
  • Patented SideWinder doors are the first in the industry.
  • Carbon fiber body and aluminum chassis results in total weight of 1,950 lbs
  • Pricing starts at just $200,000.

Distinctive Design, Inside and Out

Under the direction of CEO Ferris Rezvani, Samir Sadikhov’s award-winning design style evolves to include the hard top Beast Alpha, which integrates the aggressive, streamlined approach used previously on a new, more mainstream vehicle in the Alpha.

New features like a removable targa-style top and patented SideWinder doors are the centerpiece of the sports car. Up front, an aggressive fascia signifies the Beast Alpha’s on-road presence and allows air to travel naturally over the body. Side vents provide cooling to the engine bay, while a signature rear design pairs with a central exhaust port and dual overhead vents on the rear hatch.

The entire body is constructed out of carbon fiber, built around a Lotus-derived aluminum monocoque, and features custom 18-inch forged alloy wheels (19-inch forged alloy wheels optional). Total vehicle specs are as follows:

  • Weight: 1,950 Pounds (884KG)

  • Height: 43.5 Inches (1104.9 mm)

  • Length: 165.2 Inches  (4,145 mm)

  • Width: 80.1 Inches (1,981 mm)

  • Wheelbase: 92.3 Inches (2,345 mm)

The interior of the Beast Alpha was developed with one thing in mind: the driver. A performance-focused layout provides an experience unlike any other. Alcantara and leather fitments provide more comfort while in the cabin, while a sporty steering wheel and a custom shift knob seamlessly connect the driver to the road. Amenities like air conditioning, airbags, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto tame the Beast Alpha, but only slightly.

Pure Performance Characteristics

At its core sits a 500-horsepower racing engine built locally by the Rezvani Motors team. Engineers start with a base Acura K24 block that is rebuilt from top to bottom specifically for Beast Alpha. The upgrades include:

  • High performance turbo

  • High performance porting of cylinder head for improved airflow.

  • Custom made Stainless Inconel valves for ultimate reliability.

  • Specially engineered camshaft profiles for improved efficiency.

  • Specially made forged aluminum pistons specifically for use with turbo.

  • Upgraded CrMo connecting rods for added strength.

  • Precision machined tolerances for performance and reliability.

  • Engineered intercooling system for maximum performance.

  • Aggressively tuned exhaust system with a sound that matches the performance.

  • ECU and software map specifically designed by Rezvani  for the Beast Alpha

With these upgrades, the Beast Alpha is able to execute a power-to-weight ratio far superior to that of the competition. Just 2.56 pounds per horsepower are achieved, allowing for a 0-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds when equipped with the optional sequential automatic gearbox, and 3.4 seconds when equipped with the standard six-speed manual. Top speed is 175 mph.

Drivers are also able to choose from a range of adjustable power settings that enhance performance characteristics like throttle response and handling, with the ability to limit or remove traction control when in a track setting. These settings also allow for alternative eco-friendly fuel choices.
