You’d be shocked how fast you can throw $50k at a custom Jeep. And probably shocked that you can actually spend $50k on a stock, factory Wrangler right from a dealership floor.
When you add those two totals, you’re already past $100k without even a toe in the sand.
Rezvani has made it easier to have the ULTIMATE off-road supercar right from the start. No fiddling with settings, stance and lifts. The Dodge 392 6.4-liter V8 upgrade alone is worth about $30k on a factory machine.
Rezvani has gone far, far beyond an engine swap and customized bodywork, though. The Tank wears absolutely gorgeous, futuristic and exclusive designer panels on all sides. Zero overhangs and near zero fenders to get in the way of you extreme adventures. Check out the original sketches from designer Samir Sadikhov for proof of this machine’s aggressive, macho look from before day one.
From its sexy new cross-bar grille to its slimline (halogen!?) headlights and organic, multilayered fenders and roof — the Tank is wet with sex appeal.
It is a clean, chic and premium design indeed. Only the ultra steep windshield break angle even lets on that the Tank started out as a Jeep. Custom suicide doors and a greatly enlarged cargo area make for a totally different level of practicality than even a Wrangler Unlimited hardtop. The rear end wears black-tinted glass as a tailgate. The gloss black extends to the lower tailgate and wings to the side for the horizontal LED brake lights. It all belnds together in a black to make this look like a movie prop / hero car of the future.
Massive D-pillars promise even more strength than the stock machine’s full roll cage, but with an airier cabin. It is not a bright place inside, though — as the Hummer-like gunslot side windows and front glass attest.
Gorgeous functionality in the design detailing, too: the LED lightbar across the roof is cleanly integrated into the panels. As are the quad-LED foglamps in the minimalist bumper. A more sweeping, ultra-modern hood is actually muck taller than the factory engine cover — but lighter, stronger and even bulletproof — when optioned right with the B7 ballistic panels, glass and military-grade, self-sealing runflat tires. You can even go for the Kevlar casing for the fuel tank and other soft targets.
Is all this worth around the same cash as a G-Class 4×4-squared?
For those seeking even more exclusivity and monster-truck coolness, this Rezvani Tank just might be the dream come to life. Check out the full photoset from Ted7, specs and optionlist below.
Wishlist for the future? A Tank Speedster with no roof at all!

TANK Joins The Rezvani Arsenal
6.4-Liter 500-Horsepower V8
– On-Demand 4X4
– Thermal/Night Vision Systems
– Ballistic Armor Protection
– Starting At $178,500
Orange County, CA., – Rezvani today is proud to unveil its most extreme model to date. A street-legal, Xtreme Utility Vehicle (XUV), the Rezvani TANK embodies many of the same characteristics found on the military vehicle with the same name. TANK is the most hardcore, most capable vehicle the California-based automaker has ever built.
Under the hood is a powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8 delivering 500 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The Rezvani TANK will feature a body-on-frame design, and an on-demand four-wheel-drive system standard on all trims.
Penned by award-winning designer Samir Sadikhov, the Rezvani Tank was inspired by the look of some of the world’s most recognizable military vehicles, but designed for civilian use. Its rugged exterior is highlighted by a chiseled fascia, a defined profile, and comes paired to a capable, world-class suspension system.
The aggressive grille and sleek, defined headlights share similarities with the rest of the Rezvani range, including the Beast and Beast Alpha sports cars. At the base of the grille, two LED fog lights allow for added visibility while of trails and roads. A roof-mounted LED light bar also gives drivers another added lighting element.
The optional Off-Road Package adds on a 6-inch lift, and provides even more capable 37 x 12.5” off-road tires, Dynatrac ProRock 44/60 axle set with E-lockers, and Fox 2.5” Remote Reservoir Shocks.
The top-end Off-Road Extreme Package includes the same 6-inch lift found on the mid-range Off-Road Package, but includes added features like 37 x 13.5” tires, Dynatrac ProRock XD60/80 axle set with air lockers and an air compressor, Dynatrac ProGrip front and rear brakes, front 1350 and rear 1410 driveshafts, and Fox 2.5” Internal Bypass Shocks with DSC.
The cabin is defined by a hand-stitched Leather Package that provides comfort and compatibility for driver and passengers alike, with leather seats and a suede headliner. A 7.9-inch central infotainment screen provides access to features like Google Maps, Pandora, Stitcher, and a suite of apps optimized for use on and off road. A Head-Up Display (HUD) provides easy access to information without having to take your eyes off the road.
Alongside the healthy array of standard features, Rezvani also offers options to make your TANK even more capable, including:
- FLIR Thermal Night Vision
- Ballistic Armor: Kevlar Armor, Bulletproof Glass, Military-Grade Run Flat Tires, Kevlar Protected Fuel Tank, Floorpan, Radiator
