Rezvani Tank is the wildest SUV you've never heard of

With 500 horsepower on tap, it can hustle, too.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

If you're willing to pay six figures, you could rule the roads like the evil genius or Russian oligarch that you've always wanted to be.

The Rezvani Tank comes from Rezvani Motors, a company known for some very wild designs. The Tank is based off the Jeep Wrangler -- you can see traditional Wrangler switchgear on the center console -- but you'd have a hard time telling that from a distance. This thing looks mean, and also difficult to see out of.

Under the hood is a 6.4-liter Fiat Chrysler V8, the same one you'll find in the Challenger and Charger Scat Pack, as well as the Durango SRT. Here, it's tuned to produce 500 horsepower. While that should provide some hustle, the Tank looks rather heavy (it is called the Tank, after all...), so I wouldn't expect earth-shattering performance.

With the Wrangler's 4WD system, it's already pretty capable off the beaten path. But Rezvani added a few bits of tech to spice it up. There's a Flir-sourced infrared camera for seeing through the dark of night, a head-up display to bring more information to your face and "optional ballistic armor protection," which Rezvani doesn't elaborate on. The doors also open themselves, because why not?

It's certainly one of the most interesting SUVs available, but you'll have to pony up some serious dough to get one on your driveway. The Rezvani Beast starts at $146,000, or about $122,000 more than a base Jeep Wrangler. If you want to live like an oligarch, you'll have to have the wallet of one, too.
