SUVs have become the first choice of many around the world. Nowadays, prominent people choose bullet-proof vehicles for their safety and many vehicles in the market come with factory-fitted armour nowadays. Rezvani is one such manufacturer that is based out of California, USA. The Rezvani Tank Military Edition comes with factory-fitted body armour and bulletproof glass and this video tests the claim.
Rezvani Tank Military Edition
The Rezvani Tank is available in three different variants and the Military Edition is the top-of-the-line variant. It is priced at $300,000 which roughly translates to Rs. 2.15 crores. However, if someone wants to import this vehicle to the Indian market, it would cost more than Rs. 4 crores due to the import taxes. Nonetheless, this video shows why the Rezvani Tank Military Edition is so expensive.
The Rezvani Tank is based on the platform of Jeep Wrangler but it looks nothing like the iconic SUV. The Military Edition gets powered by a Fiat-sourced 6.4-litre V8 engine that generates a maximum power of 500 Bhp and peak torque of 583 Nm. There is also a supercharged 6.2-litre engine available as an option, which produces a maximum of 707 Bhp and a peak torque of 972 Nm.
The Military Edition comes with Bulletproof glass and body. Due to the weight of armour, each door weighs around 182 kg. The door handles get safety feature that electrifies the handles. After flicking a switch on the roof of the vehicle, anyone who tries to open the door of the Rezvani Tank Military Edition will be greeted with a shock. The edition also comes with the standard extreme off-road package. It gets a 6-inch lift kit and massive 37-inch tyres. The front and rear driveshafts have been upgraded and upgraded 2.5-inch shock absorbers from FOX.
Inside, it comes with 8.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay. The other safety features include deadbolt, smoke screen, extremely bright front and rear lights to blind any oncoming vehicles and strobe lights. The car also gets a thermal imaging camera that can see through the dark. There is an automatic tac releaser in the vehicle that can release up to 40 tacks to deflate the tyres of the vehicle following behind. It also gets inbuilt sirens and hooters. The vehicle also gets a blast-proof underbody lining that can save the passengers from direct IED blasts too.
To check the bulletproof worthiness of the Rezvani Tank Military Edition, the vehicle was taken to a shooting range. First, they shot at the window glass of the vehicle with an AR15 gun and a handgun. After 25 rounds of firing at the window, they shot at the window glass of the Rezvani Tank Military edition from an AR15 rifle. Two shots were fired on it and the video shows that it remains smooth from inside. Of course, bullets were not fired at the body of the Rezvani as replacing the body panel is much more expensive than the window of the vehicle.
