Sports car fans may be familiar with the Ariel Atom. The Atom is a small and very minimalist ride that has no bodywork and leaves the driver out in the open. Power comes typically from Honda sourced four cylinder engines. A company from California called Rezvani Automotive Designs is now taking that Atom sports car and attaching a sleek carbon fiber body to it to make a very interesting looking car.

It uses either a turbo charged four cylinder or a supercharged four for power. The company makes the carbon fiber panels themselves and paints them in sleek colors. All the work takes 1000-1500 hours and five to six months to complete.

The Beast includes a removable windshield, roll cage, and massive tires. Power goes to the ground via a six-speed manual gearbox. The version of the Beast with the 2.0L turbo engine produces 300 hp. That's not a huge amount of power but the very light car can hit 100kmh in 2.9 seconds. The supercharged version has 500hp. Pricing for the cars starts at $99,500 for the Beast 300 and $124,900 for the Beast 500.
