IF you want something really potent – and really different – you might want to put your hand up for a new Rezvani Beast Alpha X Blackbird.

And you need to be quick, because Blackbird production has been limited to five cars.

That’s right, not 500, or 50, just 5.

The Orange County supercar company, founded in 2014, says the 525kW Beast Blackbird got its name from the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird jet fighter.

Paired to a quick-shifting sequential automatic gearbox, it’s the quickest, most powerful car Rezvani Motors has ever built.

Thanks to its best-in-class performance, and kerb weight of 950kg, the Beast Alpha X is able to sprint to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds.

Power is delivered via a turbocharged 2.5-litre Cosworth motor and the first to get Rezvani’s six-speed sequential gearbox.

The body is of a hand-crafted, high-grade carbon composite and the design is by Samir Sadikhov.

With the performance-oriented X package equipped, the Beast Alpha comes with a few defining design elements to note, including distinctive lime green detailing on the front fenders and side profile, and a leather and Alcantara finished sport steering wheel.

Other design features include custom, deep dish 18-inch forged alloy wheels, AP Racing brakes, carbon fibre door panels and carbon fibre detailing.

Cost? $225,000 – or about $280,000 in Oz money.
