The production of the RAD Beast continues, with the company hiring Tim Gibson to design an “Advanced Airflow system” for the car.
As the company explains, the model is equipped with extra vents behind the front and rear wheels to prevent the “accumulation” of air at those points and maximize the aerodynamic efficiency of the “beast”.
These new elements give the Beast more downforce than we expected, compared to the original concept. We need an aerodynamically advanced car that will be able to handle the power.
Said CEO of RAD, Ferris Rezvani.
The Beast 300, is powered by a turbocharged 2 liter engine that delivers 315 hp, while the Beast 500 is equipped with a supercharged 2.4 liter engine producing 500 hp.
The Beast does not weigh more than 666 kilos and it will be able to accelerate to 100 km/h from standstill in 2.9 seconds ( 2.7 seconds for the Beast 500). The two versions will cost $119,000 and $139,000 respectively and the first two cars for each version will be sold as a “launch editions” at a reduced price of $99.500 and $124.900 respectively.
