Is The Cybertruck Actually Bulletproof? Rezvani Is Willing To Test This Theory

Rezvani Tank

People may not realize this, but there are other vehicles on the market that are bulletproof besides the Tesla Cybertruck. Several, actually. And they can be painted different colors, too.

One of the more accessible, yet radical, offerings of a bullet-proof vehicle is the Rezvani Tank. Being built up from the Jeep Wrangler and its ladder frame means that the coachbuilder is able to strip the body down to a rolling chassis, and then replace the old panels with new ones. This is one of the benefits of utilizing a ladder frame design that California’s chief deity did not mention – configurability.

Before we any further bogged down in debunking the propaganda, we caught Rezvani throwing some mad shade at the Tesla Cybertruck by inviting it to a ballistics test via an Instagram post.

The Rezvani Tank Military Edition starts at $295,000, and is available with a 1,000 horsepower Dodge Demon-based V8 engine. It features up to B7-rated glass and body panels capable of stopping a 7.62 x 51 mm bullet. Additionally, the radiator, battery and fuel tank are all wrapped in kevlar, while the underside is protected against explosive devices. Rezvani also offers EMP attack protection, which would kill an electric vehicle on the spot.

Further fortifications of the Rezvani Tank Military Edition include a smoke screen to lose followers in a chase, electrified door handles and magnetic deadbolts to prevent forced entry, military-grade run flat tires, and a thermal night vision system. All of these fortifications enclose a rather luxurious and comfortable looking cabin.

Will we see a video soon demonstrating the armor protection of the Tesla Cybertruck versus the Rezvani Tank? We certainly hope so.

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.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

  1. I’m all for a little competition, but it’s quite ridiculous to challenge the Cybertruck to beat a car that is over $200,000 more expensive than it. The fact that they are able to offer what they are at that price point is what makes the Cybertruck truly impressive. and comparing it to a vehicle that is over quadruple it’s price really isn’t going to prove much of anything.
