Rezvani Tank - now with 1,000hp

Meet Rezvani's Dodge Demon-powered "vehicle for the apocalypse"



In a sea of absurdly proportioned, aggressively styled and abundantly powerful super-SUVs, it can be hard to stand out. Setting itself apart from the crowd has never been a problem for the Rezvani Tank, though, and should be even less of an issue in future, with the 2020 iteration set to boast 1,000hp and 870lb ft. 

That’s in range-topping ‘Tank X’ spec, a $349,000 option which, along with the $295,000 ‘Tank Military’ trim, sees the machine fitted with a Dodge Demon-sourced 6.2-litre supercharged V8. Lesser guises are available for $155,000, and come equipped with a choice of 285hp 3.0-litre diesel, 285hp 3.6-litre V6, or 500hp 6.4-litre V8, but if you’re the kind of person who fancies seeing a Tank parked on your driveway - it’s not going to fit in the garage, is it - we’d wager the most powerful iterations are the ones you’ll want.


Compared to the previous model, the 2020 Tank sports an updated exterior design which, dare we say it, does actually look quite a bit better. The interior, meanwhile, remains highly customizable, but now centres around a 7.9-inch display from which an infotainment system featuring the likes of Apple CarPlay, Google Maps and Pandora radio can be accessed. Underneath are where the most significant changes ought to be found, though, with Rezvani now basing its creation on the new Jeep Wrangler’s superior JL platform, where the previous model used Jeep’s outgoing JK chassis. 

In Military Edition spec the Tank is described as “truly a vehicle for the apocalypse”, with thermal night vision, ballistic protection, military-grade run-flat tires, underside explosive protection, an armored radiator, self-sealing fuel tank, reinforced suspension and ram bumpers all included. It also features electrified door handles, EMP protection, a smoke screen, sirens and strobe lights, an intercom, gas masks, a hypothermia and first aid kits. Everything you need for a mid-morning run to Waitrose, then. 


Rezvani CEO, Ferris Rezvani, said of the updated design: “The focus of the new generation Tank was to be athletic in design and stance, have a refined ride and suspension, have a luxurious interior, and surpass 1,000 horsepower, all in a car that’s bulletproof and easily a daily driver. The new Tank is easily the toughest and most powerful production SUV in the world.”

We’d be inclined to agree, and if you can’t wait to see the new Tank debut at Monterey Car Week on August 16th, then you can also now try your hand at speccing your own version online here. Share your best efforts, and let us know what daily task you’d use a Tank for, below.

Would you need Apple Play after the Apocalypse? Are Apple based in an apocalypse-proof bunker?

"vehicle for the apocalypse"

It's got matt paint, blood is a pain to clean off matt paint and always leaves a mark.

Yes, and light grey / white interiors.

Also: 1,000bhp is great...today. After the Apocalypse it feels like overkill. Where will you need to get to in a hurry?

I'm guessing that with a 1000hp V8 hauling something the size and weight of a small house, fuel range is going to be an issue. Useful for escaping that sort of small scale Apocalypse where petrol stations remain open for business.

It's ok, the electrified door handles will kill the tester before they get to that bit

Personally I’d rather have a ratty-looking diesel Landcruiser, and make sure it was ‘equipped’ with Bear Grylls, Tom Hardy and Arnie as the passengers.And Milla Jovovich.
There, saved tons of £££ and got some pretty reliable post-apocalypse survivalists into the bargain too...

Electrified door handles. Now you're talking. I rather like that. Much better than the previous model.

Yeah, I was wondering that too!

I think the septics left sanity behind quite some time ago. Would be quite cool as a Baja/Paris Dakar stage car, but is clearly a tart's handbag for the wealthy and slightly bonkers (a common combination these days).

Something narrower may well be an advantage post apocalypse, and ideally one that doesnt use so much juice.

I am guessing the designers have put all their chips on a Mad Max style apocalypse, so that there is some fuel, somewhere, to power this thing?

Perhaps an apocalyptic vehicle in that its looks and fuel consumption bring the thing ever closer but as something to survive any apocalypse beyond one in which fuel is readily available and the need to accelerate stupidly fast is obligatory it is a complete fail.
