Anyone who felt Rezvani’s original Tank XUV (eXtreme Utility Vehicle) was a touch underdone can now stump up US$295,000 or more for a Military Edition, complete with bulletproof armor, thermal and night vision systems, a smoke bomb button and a 707-hp (527-kW) Hellcat engine. 

California’s Rezvani likes to talk big, then deliver. You don’t, for example, call your first sports car the Alpha Beast and then deliver something that blends in with the pack. The original Rezvani Tank was a re-skinned Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a new engine and a pair of coach-style doors on each side to go with a uniquely future-tough design.

And now there’s a Military Edition. While you can specify this thing with the same 500-hp (373-kW) engine as the regular Tank, there’s now also the option of moving up to the 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.4 liter V8 from the Dodge Hellcat.

The exterior is painted in US Army Desert Sand, with a matt finish. It’s also upgraded with assault rifle-proof ballistic body armor, bulletproof glass and enough underside protection to eat up an IED blast. Continuing that theme, there’s mil-spec run-flat tires, a protective wrap on the fuel tank, and extra protection around the radiator, too.

The protection extends, in a sense, to the occupants, with a built-in first aid kit, a hypothermia kit and a set of gas masks.

Further fun arrives with the Military Edition’s ram bumpers. Then there’s its electrified door handles – those’ll keep the neighbor’s kids away – not to mention strobe lights and blinding lights, front and rear, to help deal with pursuers, as well as horn, siren and loudspeaker systems to make your presence very well known.
