700-HP Rezvani Beast Alpha X Blackbird Named After The Legendary SR-71 Aircraft

You don’t have to be an airplane enthusiast to be in awe of the SR-71 Blackbird. Without going too far into details, the Blackbird was the world’s fastest airplane, capable of flying at speeds exceeding Mach 3.2 (that’s three times the speed of sound or approximately 2,300 mph) and was operated by the US Air Force for reconnaissance duties from 1964 until 1998. The latest supercar from Rezvani, the Beast Alpha X Blackbird, is inspired by this incredible airplane and is the brand’s most powerful model ever.

The Beast Alpha X Blackbird shares a lot of the components and design with the Beast Alpha and Beast Alpha X. The Beast Alpha is the brand’s most affordable vehicle, but it’s got specs to embarrass some really high-performance machines from established manufacturers. With even more power and a lighter body to lug around, the extremely limited Alpha X Blackbird is even more radical.

The engine is a 2.5-liter turbocharged unit that produces 700 hp. Cosworth provided the ECU tune, while Carillo made the racing forged rods, pistons, cams, valves, and springs. The carbon-fiber body weighs just 2,150 pounds, which means the supercar can get to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds – just as fast as a McLaren 720S. In comparison, the standard Beast Alpha takes 3.5 seconds to get to 60 mph.

The carbon-fiber body features a removable hard-top and insanely cool SideWinder doors that we’ve come to love. The rest of the body isn’t that far off of the Beast Alpha X, but gets some lime green accents, 18-inch wheels and AP racing brakes, with carbon ceramic brakes being optional.

The Beast Alpha X Blackbird is the most powerful and fastest car the brand has ever made. So, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that it’s also one of its most expensive, as it is priced at $225,000.

Only five units will be made, and MMA fighter Rampage Jackson has reportedly accepted delivery of the first one. That only leaves four available units for purchase, so you’ll have to act fast if you want one.

    What’s going on with the door in picture 2?

    • Kash

      that’s how it opens, like a minivan door except instead of sliding back it slides forward. They call them sidewinder doors.

    • europeon
    • Anorak fact: The sidewinder got it’s name from US air-to-air missile. Because the door looks like missile being launched from fighter jet.

      The founder Ferris Rezvani is son of Iranian immigrants, his father was a F4 Phantom pilot in Imperial Iranian Air Force and he decide to honor his dad legacy with the door and the name.

  • SetNick

    I like it. Something new.

  • Bash

    I like the fact that they didn’t make it an EV

  • fabri99

    Very desireable, but… that’s a lot of performance right there. I wonder how the car will handle it.

  • Arthur

    Is it just me or is this a bargain at the $225K asking price? Really nice looking car.

  • Chad Gordon

    I Love the wheel and tire combo. we’ve all heard the saying “More Cowbell!” well for me its More Sidewall!

  • I personally never like Rezvani because in essence, it’s just an Ariel Atom with clothes on, and it looks to appeal to Florida hip hop artist and mma fighter rather than enthusiast.
