California-based Rezvani Motors has officially unveiled “Beast”, a roadster built around the chassis of an Ariel Atom 3, with some inspiration taken from the Lamborghini Huracan. Weighing just 1,650-pounds, the $165,000 vehicle was kept as light as possible, thanks to a carbon fiber body and carbon-steel chassis.

Some of the options available include cushioned seats and leather and Alcantara trim,” reports Motor Authority.
