The New Rezvani Vengeance is Armor on Top, Cadillac Underneath

Rezvani has never been a company to mess around with half-measures. The company’s military-inspired vehicles blend video game looks with real-world technical advancements. Its latest creation looks to bring science fiction with futuristic video game aesthetics wrapped in bulletproof material. 

The Rezvani Vengeance is based on a Cadillac Escalade and offers three rows of seating. It comes with a 6.2-liter V8 and can be upgraded to a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, but buyers can opt for a supercharged V8 with 810 horsepower. 

Rezvani’s exterior designs don’t scream luxury, but the interior is fitting of a vehicle with a deep six-figure price tag. The Vengeance benefits from its Cadillac underpinnings with a massive infotainment display and familiar switchgear. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are on board, along with all the other tech features luxury buyers demand.

The $285,000 SUV comes with a bulletproof package that brings protection outside, and the company offers all sorts of Bond villain-level gadgets for ambitious buyers. The SUV can be equipped with a tear gas system, gas masks, night vision, electric shock door handles, and more. 

It’s unclear who Rezvani’s targeting with the Vengeance other than people who want to brag about an armored car. Politicians and dignitaries tend to choose less conspicuous armored vehicles like the Chevy Suburban.

    For the Russian Oligarch that made a tweet criticizing Putin

    Bullet resistant, not bulletproof. The resistance should get you to a place where no more bullets are being fired at you.

    This is bass-ackwards from what you want in a protective vehicle. Think: Uh, why does that Range Rover has eight-inch doors?

    Robocop, your SUV has arrived! (For when the tarted-up Colonnade Cutlass or Ford Taurus just won’t do!)

    It's an overpriced pile of scrap.
