Rezvani's latest supercar inspired by the world's fastest fighter

The latest supercar from Rezvani is named Beast Alpha X Blackbird, who was born inspired by the fastest SR-71 Blackbrid aircraft. No wonder, this car became the most powerful Rezvani product ever.

As we all know, the SR-71 Blackbird is the fastest plane in the world capable of flying at speeds exceeding Mach 3.2 (three times the speed of sound or about 2,300 mph) of the US Air Force for surveillance missions in the period 1964-1998.

As quoted from Carscoops on Friday, February 2, 2018, the Beast Alpha X Blackbird share components and designs with the Beast Alpha and the Beast Alpha X. The Beast Alpha is the most affordable vehicle brand, but has more specifications that can embarrass some other manufacturers' high performance branded machines.

This car carrying 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that produces 700 horsepower. The entire body is coated with carbon fiber, so it's not surprising that the Beast Alpha X Blackbird weighs only 2,150 lbs, which means the supercar can reach 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds or as fast as the McLaren 720S. In comparison, the standard Alpha Beast takes up to 3.5 seconds to 60 mph.

For other parts of the supercar is not far from the Beast Alpha X, but gets some lime green accents, then there are 4 wheels with 18-inch dimension and AP racing brakes, with carbon ceramic brakes being an option.

Beast Alpha X Blackbird is the most powerful and fastest car ever made by Rezvani. So, not surprisingly, this car is one of the most expensive because the price reaches US. $225,000 or about Rp.3 billion.
And only five units will be built and reportedly, the MMA fighter, Rampage Jackson has received the car in its first shipment. That is, now only four units left in the world. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS]

Here is the appearance of Supercar designed in the form of Van

We all know top brands of supercars, such as Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Audi, Bugati to Ferrari have many supercar products with a distinctive physical shape, fast, elegant and luxurious characters. So, what happens if the automotive manufacturers above are producing large capacity vehicles with designs such as Van.

As we all know, that van vehicle is a type of vehicle used to transport goods or people in large quantities. And usually has a box shape with four wheels, as well as dimensions that are wider and longer than the car in general.

As quoted from Carscoops on Monday, February 12, 2019, a Russian automotive designer named Nikita Aksyonov has made the design of several luxury car brands, such as Lexus, Infiniti, Alfa Romeo, BMW, even Porsche in the form of Van.

Many people imagine if it really happens, where we will see a Van that uses a 16-cylinder engine with an average speed of 365 kph runs on the highway. Yes, when we see VW Combi that go fast, we have to hold back laughter, especially if there is a Bugatti, Lamborghini and Ferrari with the form of Van drove on the highway. Can you imagine?

Meanwhile, all of these are merely design on paper from an automotive designer (Nikita Aksyonov) although in the end the Van car manufacturers, such as VW, Fiat and Nissan will provide their expertise to their peers who are in the upper segment vehicle, if they want to make it into reality someday. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | BEHANCE | CARSCOOPS]

Not known what was thought before, but the request was issued by the first owner for this four wheel. In collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, some indentations in Valkyrie will use an unusual charge, the dust of the Moon. The Moon's stone will be crushed into the dust and then will be added to the red paint that adorns the Valkyrie.

Before the car goes into the production line, the first owner requested additional features in these Aston Martin hypercar. Not explained what was added in the car, but he claimed to bring the four wheels out of this world.
When speaking about its drivetrain, the car will use a naturally aspirated Cosby 6.5 liter V12 Cosworth engine and combines with electric motors to produce a total output of approximately 1,130 horsepower. So no wonder that these car is believed to be able to beat the record of Porsce 911 GT2 RS in Nürburgring. Or maybe the Ferrari FXX K Evo and McLaren P1 GTR. That's really amazing car, don't you. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1]
