The Radical SUV Will Have Over 1,000 Horsepower

Rezvani Tank

Rezvani Motors has quickly developed a reputation for being one of the most extroverted coachbuilders in the world. Adding to it are imposing names such as “Beast” and, more recently, “Tank.” For those unaware, the Rezvani Tank is a beastly SUV that starts its life as a humble Jeep Wrangler. From there, Rezvani drops in a 6.4L Hemi crate engine with 500 horsepower, completely reshapes the interior and exterior, and loads the Beast up with military-grade features such as armor plating and bulletproof glass. The Rezvani Beast starts at $178,000, but high-end options can have this super SUV tip the scales at over $300,000 (including B7 armor piercing round protection for $97,000). And for $259,000, buyers can opt for the Hellcat-powered Tank X with 707 horsepower.

Now, Rezvani announced that there’s going to be a new one.

Buyers can drop a $2,500 reservation deposit for a new Rezvani Tank on the company’s website. Details are scarce at the moment, but what’s provided are a few teaser photos, as well as details stating that the new Tank will be based off the all-new JL Jeep Wrangler, and will feature a raucous 1,000 hp.

One thousand horsepower? It sounds like Rezvani could be using the monstrous Hellephant crate engine in this thing, but we don’t know for sure just yet. In any case, doubling the output from before is bound to help get the armored SUV moving with more sufficiency, because if that all of that armor is actually put to use, the Rezvani Beast will need to scram.

Meanwhile, the sheetmetal that’s been teased looks to be even more radical than before, with muscular layers and creases making up the shape of the hood. We also see four door handles, which is a change up from before, as the previous generation Rezvani Beast utilized the type of suicide door layout one would find on a late-model extended cab pickup truck. We’re not sure what kind of interior work Rezvani is doing to the interior of the stock Jeep Wrangler, but we’re sure it’s bound to reflect the extreme shape of the exterior, as well.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.
