Rezvani Will Now Sell You A 300 HP Beast Speedster For $139K

Ariel Motor Company

That’s a lot of money for a modified Ariel Atom.

There’s nodenying that Rezvani’s “Beast” is a capable track day vehicle. It is based off the Ariel Atom, after all. For drivers that found the 500 hp Beast too expensive,or too powerful, the company has just announced a less powerful and lessexpensive Beast Speedster. At a cost of $139,000, the Speedster is $20,000 less than the 500 hp variant, and comes powered by the same supercharged 2.4-liter inline-four as the Beast with output rated at 300 hp.

When combined with a ultra-low weight of just 1,650 pounds thanks to a body made entirely of carbon fiber, equates to a mighty impressive power-to-weight ratio of 5.5 lbs/hp. The BeastSpeedster is expected to hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, while the 500 hp Beast can getto the same speed in 2.7 seconds. According to CEO Ferris Rezvani, “we reallywanted to put the emphasis on agility over speed.” The less powerful BeastSpeedster focuses on driving pleasure instead of all out performance. Unlike the Beast’s barren interior,the Beast Speedster has leather over the carbon fiber seats, shift knob andsteering wheel, while four-point safety harnesses have been added to bothseats.
