US-based performance car upstart Rezvani has unveiled its first two models, based on the track-day-special Ariel Atom.

The Beast 300 and the Beast 500 both feature the same sleek roadster body-style made from composite carbon-fibre, targeting potential Atom buyers who would prefer to avoid the bare-bones Ariel styling.

Each model offers the same six-speed manual transmission, a limited-slip differential and rear-wheel-drive, with a 2.0 litre engine powering the 300 and a 2.4 litre in the 500; both turbocharged.

The 300 gets 235kW and 324Nm from its 2.0 litre engine with a 2.9 second 0-100km/h time, while the 500 lifts power to 373kW/579Nm and offers up a 0-100km/h time of 2.7 seconds.

As with the Atom, minimising weight is a major priority for Rezvani, with the 300 weighing-in at 669kg while the slightly heavier 500 weighs 705kg.

Elsewhere, both Beasts feature four-piston performance brake callipers, a fully-removable windscreen, roll hoops, adjustable dampers and 19-inch wheels front and rear.

Both the 300 and 500 are initially available as ‘Launch Edition’ models, with the first two customers of the 300 only asked to pay the introductory price of US$99,500 (AU$107,243).

The Beast 500 starts at US$124,900 (AU$134,619), but a full day of race track tuition is included in the price.

Following the Launch Editions, pricing for the 300 and 500 will rise to US$119,000 (AU$128,260) and US$139,000 (AU$149,817) respectively.

Current Ariel Atom owners can opt to ‘upgrade’ their cars to Beast spec, with a 300 upgrade costing US$49,000 (AU$52,813) and a 500 upgrade priced at US$69,000 (AU$74,369).
