2017 Rezvani SUV will be 'toughest SUV on the planet'

  2017 Rezvani SUV will be 'toughest SUV on the planet' Rezvani will produce its own four-door four-door, five-seat SUV. The four-door, five passenger SUV has been revealed in early design sketches, and can be reserved by potential customers for a $1000 refundable deposit. The brand makes the bold claim that the car will be the ‘toughest extreme utility vehicle on the planet’, which is somewhat backed up by the optional bulletproofing on the equipment list. Deliveries begin in late 2017, although the company has not revealed just how much the car will cost yet. The Beast, the brand’s supercar, costs around £124,000 ($159,000), so it’s expected that the SUV will either match this, or undercut it.

Ever since the U.S. military started pawning its ratty old Humvees off on the public through surplus auctions, people have been wondering how good they really are as off - road toys. It Just Got A Lot Easier To Own A Surplus Military Hummer .

Anyway, here’s a peek at how to make one of these metal monsters sing. If you’re hoping to find out how Dirt Every Day’s Fred Williams and Dave Chappelle got this thing road legal, you’re going to be disappointed. The process of getting license plates on one of these is apparently still a bit of a pain, but if you can tow your new Humvee straight to your rock-crawling arena of choice, it looks like a spine-squiggling riot.

The truck Williams won has portal axles, a 6.2-liter diesel engine, 37-inch tires and a few rat’s nests straight out of the auction, but he and Chappelle made this one a little extra awesome with even larger tires and some seriously aggressive fender-trimming.

The results, well, I’ll let you watch the video. But I think the Dirt Every Day dudes were more impressed than they thought they’d be by this clapped-out war machine.
