The Rezvani Beast Alpha (also known as Rezvani Beast α) is a mid-engined sports coupe by Rezvani.
The Rezvani Beast Alpha is essentially a coupe version of the Rezvani Beast. The car debuted in a Rezvani keynote in 2016. Even as the Alpha is not a base model, it is cheaper than its speedster counterpart at US$95,000, due to price drops after its debut. It was originally US$200,000, but is scheduled to drop in price in 2018.
The car includes what Rezvani calls "Sidewinder" doors, which are doors that pop to the side and slide forward. This is the only Beast model to have these doors. However, while not standard, it can be an added option for US$10,000.
The car has a new 2.4-liter turbocharged I4 tuned by Cosworth, which pushes out up to 500 hp (373 kW). The car's 0 – 60 mph (0 – 97 km/h) acceleration time is slower than the regular Beast, at 3.5 seconds. The Alpha's top speed is 175 mph (282 km/h). The car's power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual.
The car's weight is slightly heavier, at 1664 lb (755 kg), which makes the car's power-to-weight ratio lower, at 662 hp (494 kW) per ton. This is due to the addition of new features, which include air conditioning, driver-selectable traction control, air bags, a roof (targa style; removable), climate control, and functional doors.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The Rezvani Beast Alpha was added in the Asphalt Moments Update as a high-end Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1148
- This was changed to 1169 in the Fast Lane Update.
- MAX rank: 1561 (+413)
- This was changed to 1519 (+350) in the Fast Lane Update.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1768 (+207)
- This was changed to 1767 (+248) in the Fast Lane Update.
- Tuning Kit bonus: +65
- This was changed to +94 in the Fast Lane Update.
- Stock-to-MAX+PRO rank difference: 620
- This was changed to 597 in the Fast Lane Update.
- Upgrade rank percentages: 5/65/5/25
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/12/16
The Rezvani Beast Alpha (Rezvani BA) can be considered one of six "Class A Kings" at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit, alongside the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition (SLK SE), Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport (Corvette GS), BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage (Hommage), McLaren Mercedes MP4-25 (MP4-25) and Rezvani Beast X. Overall, the Rezvani Beast Alpha ranks as the third-best vehicle in Class A, only ranking lower than the SLK SE and Beast X and closely tied with the Corvette GS.
The Rezvani Beast Alpha's performance is based on the MP4-25 but trades nitro efficiency and acceleration for top speed. The Rezvani Beast Alpha has good handling with a tight drift radius, making it nimble but also easy to oversteer (which can result in wrecks around corners).
Compared to the other Class A Kings, the Rezvani Beast Alpha has the best drifting capabilities. In comparison, the MP4-25 has faster acceleration, the SLK SE and Corvette Grand Sport have a higher top speed while the McLaren 720S has better nitro efficiency.
As such, the Rezvani Beast Alpha excels on short and/or technical tracks (and a good competitor for very long and/or straight tracks). With to its excellent acceleration and drifting, it can handle sharp turns (Dubai, San Diego Harbor, Barcelona, Munich Subway, Transylvania), circular turns (Venice, Sector 8, Munich Subway), hairpin turns (Azure Coast, Transylvania, Nevada, Iceland), frequent ramps (Dubai, San Diego Harbor, Barcelona, Sector 8, Nevada), tight corridors and caves (Munich Subway, Transylvania, Patagonia, Iceland), uneven paths (Sector 8, Tenerife, Patagonia, Tokyo), and high drops (Tenerife, Patagonia, San Diego Harbor, Tokyo, The Great Wall, Rio de Janeiro, London).
As of the Halloween Update, the Rezvani Beast Alpha is now more stable and safer to drive than before.
The Rezvani Beast Alpha is capable of placing in the top 100 on most tracks apart from Tokyo Reverse.
The Rezvani BA's closest competitors on short and/or technical tracks is the McLaren Mercedes MP4/25 and Rezvani Beast X, followed by similar (but less effective) McLaren 720S, SIN R1, Rimac Concept S, and Aston Martin One-77. The cumbersome top speed of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 Special Edition, Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, Icona Vulcano, Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, and Infiniti Vision GT gives those vehicles an advantage on long tracks, while still being somewhat competitive on short and straight tracks.
With its low starting rank, the Rezvani Beast Alpha has several tuning options:
- 0401 5050 Rank 1491 446 kmh/277 mph
- 0500 5050 Rank 1561 464 kmh/289 mph
- 0502 5052 Rank 1596 471 kmh/293 mph
- 0504 5050 Rank 1634 478 kmh/297 mph
- 0504 5055 Rank 1665 483 kmh/300 mph
- 4504 5055 Rank 1680 483 kmh/300 mph
- 0505 5055 Rank 1696 488 kmh/303 mph
- 0505 5555 Rank 1727 493 kmh/306.4 mph
- 5505 5555 Rank 1748 493 kmh/306.4 mph
This car is capable of reaching the Champion League in Multiplayer with sufficient skill. The 1680+ rank tunes are risky as the player may be put in races with significantly higher ranked cars.
All of the tunes are mostly top speed focused as the Rezvani Beast Alpha has above average acceleration at the stock level, as well as handling as drifting enough to make the car easy to control (though the drifting is noticeably sensitive, making it easy to over-steer).
Under the prototype matchmaking system from the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Rezvani Beast Alpha, like every other car with quick acceleration, was made more competitive.
Even with the modified upgrade rank percentages from the Fast Lane Update, the Beast Alpha is still viable in Multiplayer, with the Beast X and MP4-25 being the only concerns.
