Rezvani Will Rebuild Your 911 to Go From Zero to 60 MPH in Two Seconds

Rezvani is expanding the scope of its offerings in a very appealing way for sports car lovers.

The Montana-based company best known for its heavily armored Escalade is now turning its attention to the Porsche 911. The shop has just unveiled its take on the German marque’s most famous model, which features a retro-style body and modern-day components and tech.

The build will be called the RR1 and is based on the current 992 generation of the vehicle. Each car will wear a carbon-fiber body very clearly inspired by the 935 race cars from the 1970s. The redesigned exterior features a flatter nose, Taycan-style headlights, flared fenders in the back, Turbo fan-style wheels, and a giant rear wing. The vehicle is basically the shop’s slightly more subdued version of Porsche’s own 935 anniversary race car from 2018 with less of a “whale tale.”

Revzani plans to release three versions of the RR1, each of which is named for the output of its powertrain and available in either a street or track configuration. The 550 is based on the Carrera S and is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder that produces 520 hp in the road car and 550 hp in the track version. Up next is the 565, which is based on the GT3 and has a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six that produces either 535 hp or 565 hp. Finally, there’s the 750 which is based on the Turbo S and has a turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six that pumps out either 715 hp or 750 hp depending on the version. The shop says the 550 can launch from zero to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds, the 565 in three seconds flat, and the 750 in just two seconds. No top speed was given for any of the models, but we imagine the numbers are more than respectable.

The rear-wheel-drive 550 and 565 both come with the option of a manual or PDK transmission. The all-wheel-drive 750, meanwhile, is only available with a PDK transmission. The shop will also tailor the suspension of each car to meet the owner’s preferences. There are also a number of optional upgrades, like a steel roll cage, Brembo brakes, or a custom livery.

Rezvani plans to build just 50 examples of the RR1 and is taking orders now. Pricing for the build starts at $149,000, but that doesn’t include the donor chassis which will cost you anywhere from $131,000 to $230,000 if you don’t already own a 992-generation 911.
