The 2020 Rezvani Tank Has 1,000 Horsepower and Is Still Stupendously Pointless

The first Rezvani Tank had 500 horsepower and was once driven by the worst person on Earth. The new one will double the horsepower, and the ridiculousness.

As our own Jason Torchinsky pointed out with the first (generation?) Tank, this SUV is basically an engine-swapped and rebodied Jeep Wrangler. I’m guessing that will stay largely true with this new version, though the new version will be based on Jeep’s new JL Wrangler platform, instead of the JK, according to Motor1.

Motor1 has a few more details, citing the vehicle’s surprising (concerning?) attention given to EMP:

Rezvani’s teaser only offers a few technical details about the 2020 Tank, like that it rides on a suspension from Fox Racing. Buyers will be able to specify an optional TANK X package what will put a Dodge-Challenger-SRT-Demon-sourced 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 under the hood. Rather than the stock 707-horsepower (527-kilowatt) output, Rezvani will tune the powerplant to over 1,000 hp (746 kW).

As an additional offering, Rezvani will offer the Tank Military Edition that will include military-grade electromagnetic pulse protection. According to the company, the package will guard against the E1 blast of electromagnetic radiation, which can occur during an extreme event like a nuclear blast; the E2 pulse, which is similar to what takes place from a lightning strike, and E3 pulse, which is what happens during solar flares.

Will this car protect you from a nuclear blast? It’s hard to say.

It’s also hard to say who the market is for a car like this, designed for someone with a quarter-million dollars to burn but with the tastes of an 11-year-old G.I. Joe enthusiast. Maybe that’s bigger than I thought, come to think of it.

Jalopnik and Eric what do you have against our company to make hateful comments?  I would’ve thought the fact that it has a dodge demon engine in it would be the coolest thing as an automotive enthusiast rather than such hateful unnecessary comments. Tank is a fresh and unique design something most small and large companies are not courageous enough to make. It’s a unique, different as one of the most powerful engines on any SUV on the planet. it has James Bond security features everyone who drives drives it or writes about it loves it. Only Jalopnik writes such arrogant hateful articles. I invite you to come down to our facility once again drive the car and see it in person.
