You can spot a Rezvani from miles away.
Whether it be the Tank SUV or six-wheeled Hercules truck, their vehicles are some of the most striking machines on public roads. The brand takes great pride in this, going as far as stating that these vehicles “helped reinvent the boring SUV space.” With such a portfolio under its belt, where does Rezvani go from here?
The answer, unsurprisingly, involves a bulletproof seven-seater SUV powered by a supercharged V8. It’s called the Vengeance, and if it looks like something more at home in the original installment of Halo than at your local Whole Foods, that’s intentional. According to Rezvani, the Vengeance’s primary purpose is to make its owner feel like they’re driving something straight out of a video game. To accomplish this, they hired Milen Ivanov, a digital artist, and video game developer, to style it.
The result comes across as a sort of futuristic military vehicle, complete with plenty of LEDs, an abundance of angular body lines, and a prominent light bar in its rear. 22inch wheels come standard wrapped in 35-inch off-road tires. Armored versions of the Vengeance offer optional extras such as bulletproof glass, underside explosive protection, military run-flat tires, thermal night vision cameras, and electrified door handles, to name a few.
A supercharged V8 under the Vengeance’s hood delivers a 690 horsepower and 673 foot-pound output. A naturally aspirated V8 and turbodiesel V6 will join the lineup in the future, although Rezvani has yet to announce their power and torque figures.
Inside, the Vengeance offers three rows of seats with comfortable seating for seven, although Rezvani claims it can carry up to eight passengers. Its second row is available as either a three-seat bench or two captain’s chairs. Its front bucket seats offer heating and cooling functionality, complemented by a heated steering wheel. On the tech front, the Vengeance features a curved OLED digital dashboard complete with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Rezvani’s first seven-seater SUV officially goes on sale today with a starting price of $249,000. If the Tank and Hercules are anything to go by, this base figure is likely for the non-armored version. Adding all those combat-ready optional extras will likely balloon that to a much more substantial sum.
Although we have yet to see it in the metal, the Vengeance seems to be the brand’s most ambitious project to date. It takes the theme of futuristic sci-fi-inspired design and runs with it, creating yet another striking vehicle to fit nicely into the brand’s portfolio.
