Offgrid Transportation Rezvani Tank: A $300,000 Armored Bug-Out Truck
We attended Protector Symposium 5.0 in Tucson, Arizona, with the goal...
Unless you're a diehard car enthusiast, you probably haven't heard of Rezvani Motors. Until recently, this small automotive company has only produced one model: a hand-built American supercar called the Rezvani Beast. This low-slung vehicle looks like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie, and its latest version (the Beast Alpha, seen below) has a starting price of $139,000.
However, Rezvani has branched out with the release of a brand-new model for 2018. It's known as the Rezvani Tank, and it's an immense “extreme utility vehicle” that appears to be deserving of its imposing name. The new Tank comes standard with a 500-horsepower 6.4L V8 — a variant of the same powerful 392 Hemi motor found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.
Of course, the Rezvani Tank offers four-wheel drive via an on-demand system, as well as Off Road or Extreme Off Road suspension packages. The Off Road package gives you the following upgrades:
The Extreme Off Road package ups the ante even further with:
Prospective buyers can also choose from one of three levels of Kevlar body armor, which also include bulletproof glass, run-flat tires, and added Kevlar protection around the fuel tank, floor pan, and radiator. The B4 level is rated for handgun rounds up to .44 Magnum; B6 is rated for high-power rifle rounds up to .30-06; B7 is rated for multiple hits from armor-piercing .308 rifle rounds.
There's even an available FLIR thermal night vision system so you can bug out stealthily without needing to turn on the lights. The tow package equips the Rezvani Tank with a tow hitch and front winch.
This isn't just an ordinary armored vehicle, it's also designed to function as a luxury SUV. The suicide doors open to reveal leather seats with customizable contrast stitching, a suede headliner, hand-stitched leather floor mats, and automatic-opening and -closing side steps. The Tank's exterior is offered in nine standard colors, but if you want yours in FDE or lime green to match your Lambo, that's no problem — custom colors are available at no extra charge.
A heads-up display projects vehicle information onto the windshield as you drive, and an Alpine touchscreen stereo head unit with Apple CarPlay lets you listen to your favorite tunes. A trickle charger and weather-proof car cover are available as accessories, in case you plan to keep your Rezvani Tank in storage until SHTF.
Now, as you may imagine, this is not a cheap vehicle. The base price before options is $178,000. After fully maxing-out the options list in Rezvani's interactive build configurator, and including all the optional equipment we mentioned above, we got the price to a whopping $305,075. That's certainly not the most expensive bug-out truck we've written about, but it's sure up there.
