Californian builder Rezvani has added a new model to their range, the new Beast Alpha.
The model is essentially a hardtop version of the Beast launched last year but does differ beyond simply having a fixed roof.
Most notably, the Beast Alpha isn’t based around the Ariel Atom like its roadster sibling and instead uses a Lotus-based aluminum chassis. Additionally, the Beast Alpha no longer uses a turbocharger alongside the Honda-sourced 2.4-liter K24 four-cylinder and instead draws on extra power courtesy of a Rotrex supercharger. The engine also benefits from new cams, stronger pistons and rods and a ported head.
All told, it pumps out 500 hp, weighs 1,950 pounds (884 kg) and is able to accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.2 seconds before topping out at 175 mph (281 km/h).
Elsewhere, the Beast Alpha is made unique thanks to its new ‘SideWinder’ doors which despite look highly impractical, do give the sports car yet another interesting talking point. In the cabin, owners will be treated to plush black alcantara and leather, an infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, air conditioning, air bags and a number of different driving modes, including one which maximizes fuel efficiency.
Prices for the Honda Beast, no wait…sorry, the Rezvani Beast start at $200,000.
