This $178,000, 500-HP, Wrangler-Based Truck Is What You’ll Need When Doomsday Strikes

Wherever your Rezvani Beast Alpha can’t go, the 500 horsepower Tank can. There’s a reason it’s called a “tactical urban vehicle.”

Rezvani Motors, the company that will sell you a Lotus-based, 400 horsepower sports car with a fiberglass body for a little under $100,000 came up with a new product for those who prefer not to worry about speed bumps or tall curbs. Or, in fact, anything else, since the Tank will be available with a 6-inch lift kit and “optional ballistic armor protection.”

Starting at $178,000, the Tank is powered by a 6.4 Hemi tuned to produce 500 horsepower. All of which will be needed to rotate its massive 37” x 13.5 inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires

The lower level off-road package includes a six-inch lift, 37 x 12.5 inch tires, a Dynatrac ProRock 44/60 axle set with electronic lockers, as well as 1350 driveshafts front and rear, and 2.5 inch remote reservoir shocks from Fox. Those looking for more can opt for 37 x 13.5 inch tires, a Dynatrac ProRock XD60/80 axle set complete with air lockers and an air compressor, as well as 1410 driveshafts at the rear, Dynatrac’s ProGrip brake kit and Fox’s 2.5 inch internal bypass shocks with DSC.

Other goodies include an integrated LED bar, head-up display, a full leather interior, powered suicide doors and Flir’s thermal/night vision system. Because deers can be a menace.

If something about the Tank makes you think of the Jeep Wrangler, that’s because the frame is a modified version of the one underneath the Rubicon Unlimited. Rezvani did this to ensure global road legal status and make sure that the cost of maintenance was kept low.

So, according to Rezvani, the perfect two-door garage hides its carbon-bodied Beast sports car with the six-speed manual and the 2.4-liter Honda four-cylinder tuned to 500 horsepower, and this hugely practical SUV, to which they refer to as “the world’s first true tactical urban vehicle, built for civilian use.”

Just make sure to tick the ballistic armor option, since you really don’t want to be shamed by your neighbor’s Dartz.
