PRLog - Jul. 27, 2014 - ORANGE, Calif. -- With the initial web launch of Beast only a few weeks ago, RAD is proud to announce the beginning of production of Beast #001, headed to a customer in Texas, U.S.A.

The Beast 500 is the very first production vehicle that will leave the RAD build facility.  But undoubtedly, not the last. CEO Ferris Rezvani is optimistic as to the future of the brand:

“We’re very excited to begin work on our first customer car,” says Rezvani. "It’s only step one, but it’s a big step that our team has worked hard to achieve.  From this point on, we’re going to let the car do all the talking."

The customer-ordered RAD Beast 500 will feature a twin-charged four-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission, and rear wheel drive, all based on the Ariel Atom platform.

The Beast will hit the streets by the end of the year.

RAD Beast is an ultra light, carbon fiber supcar deisgned and built in California and able to achieve extreme peformance numbers.

Born on the track and designed for the road, the RAD BEAST gives new meaning to the lightweight, high-performance sports car, with world class styling. From a six-speed manual transmission, to a rear-wheel drive layout, every inch of BEAST is built with the driver in mind — raw, pure, and powerful.

Performance

Thanks in part to its 1,550 lb curb weight, the BEAST 500 can sprint from a standstill to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds. The BEAST 300 can reach 60 mph in only 2.9 seconds, tipping the scales at a featherlight 1,470 lbs.

Power comes from either a 2.0-liter turbocharged, or 2.4-liter supercharged mid-mounted engine that can produce 315, and up to 500 horsepower respectively.

Both engines are prepared by Ariel Atom specialists DDM Works of South Carolina. DDM Works president, Dave Michel, provides this overview:

"When the engine is built, the block is disassembled, and checked for defects, etc. Then the crank bearing surfaces are polished, the block is cleaned, bored, decked and prepped for the new high-performance parts.

The engine is assembled with all new parts — upgraded pistons, forged H beam rods, ARP studs, and optional clutch upgrades — and filled with a break-in oil for the first start. On the 500hp twin charge versions, stock cams are used and stock heads, although the head is disassembled, cleaned, pressure checked, surfaced and put together with new seals."

The high-output engine is paired to a limited slip six-speed manual gearbox, and a rear wheel drive layout. All with minimal electronic interference that provides drivers with tactile feedback and extreme response."

Design

Under the direction of RAD (Rezvani Automotive Designs) — the same firm involved in the design and development of the Vencer Sarthe — BEAST’s stunning look was created by renowned automotive designer Samir Sadikhov. Samir is known for designs like the Aston Martin DBC, and Ferrari Xerzi concepts. The BEAST is the very definition of an aggressive, open-top supercar with minimalist surfaces and ultimate performance proportions.

Beginning at the low-friction front fascia, the body lines extend out to create a streamlined appearance. Paired to angular rear panels, air flows over the car to provide maximum downforce at high speeds.
