Automaker Rezvani introduced its new supercar, the Beast 300, on Monday. Beast 300 was built on an Ariel Atom platform and designed so that air can flow over the car to provide maximum down force at high speeds.

The car can go from zero to 60 in just 2.9 seconds. It sells for $124,900, but the first two purchasers will get a discount at $99,500 a piece.

Motor Authority's Nelson Ireson wrote that the vehicle's lightweight design and supercharged engine comes with an aesthetic design.

"The Ariel Atom has long been an object of desire for track fiends, but its utterly minimalist nature can limit its appeal to the average passerby," Ireson wrote. "The Rezvani Beast aims to change that, with dramatic exterior styling that bridges the gulf between track star and supercar.

"Tipping the scales at as little as 1,470 pounds for the Beast 300, the lightweight, unfiltered fun should remain. With its 315 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, the Beast 300 can hit 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds," Ireson added.

The engine was built by DDM Works in South Carolina. Rezvani brought in N2A Motors and Sabet Brands to build and sell the Beast.

"Together with DDM Works, N2A Motors and Sabet Brands, Rezvani is able to compile the best in branding experts, performance specialists and body molding experts to create this one-of-a-kind driving experience for the road and track," Rezvani said in its statement.

"In order to expedite the production process, Rezvani is focusing on putting its resources towards tooling and production methods for the Beast, rather than a one-off show car. Each car is made to order and delivery time is typically three to five months, depending on options and personalization," the statement added.

The New York Daily News reported that there is a strong roll-cage for safety and Rezvani offers a one-day driving course on a racetrack for anyone buying the vehicle.

"We suggest taking them up on that offer," the article said.
