Ride Out the Apocalypse With the 1,000-Horsepower Rezvani Tank X SUV

When Skynet or the zombies inevitably take over, and things go all I Am Legend, you’re going to need to get the hell out of Dodge. A helicopter or boat is probably the best option, but most of us aren’t pilots or sailors. There’s something to be said for an extreme, fortified overland vehicle built to drive over or through just about anything. That vehicle is the Rezvani Tank X SUV.

Rezvani Motor’s entire Tank lineup is designed as a breed of “off-road supercars.” Like their Benz and Bentley brethren, every model is built for speed. The standard Tank X boasts a 6.2L Supercharged Demon V8 and a sport exhaust pushing 1,000 horsepower. That might sound unnecessary, but it won’t seem like it when you’re bugging out of the city as you watch the skyline crumble in the rear-view mirror. When things really go sideways, 37-inch Nitto Trail Grappler tires, Fox 3.0 Extreme shocks, a 6-inch suspension lift kit, and auto-retracting steps allow you to get far, far off the pavement. That the entire affair is built on the field-tested and highly capable Jeep Wrangler chassis is further proof of this beast’s off-road prowess.

That’s all great when the best chance of survival is to run like hell. But, the Military Upgrade adds a bevy of Bond-worthy assault gadgets to help you survive a firefight. The package boasts bulletproof body armor and glass, underside explosive protection, military-grade run-flat tires, a self-sealing gas tank, and state-of-the-art protection against electromagnetic pulses (EMPs). When the only way out is through, a FLIR thermal night vision system helps guide the way, and blinding lights, deafening sirens, smoke screens, and electrified door handles all ensure that no one will mess with you and yours.

However, the Tank X is not merely a military-flavored SUV for surviving the apocalypse. Believe it or not, Rezvani is touting it as a daily driver. The custom, hand-stitched leather seats, supple suede headliner, and 7.9-inch infotainment screen would seem to testify to that. Although it’s hard to imagine the Tank X as anything more than a showpiece for one-percenters with more disposable income than sense. To be clear though, we still desperately want one.

The Rezvani Tank X SUV starts at $349,000, but the long list of available — we would argue necessary — options pushes the final sticker price closer to $400,000. Sure, it costs more than a house in most typical American suburbs, but you can’t take all that money with you anyway, right? If you’re looking for a tricked-out mobile safe room with even more go, AddArmor just debuted the world’s fastest armored car with a top speed of more than 200 miles per hour.

The Audi R8 electric successor: Everything we know so far
Audi's highest-performance car will be electric
The second generation Audi R8 GT produced 620 horsepower.

Audi manufactured the last Audi R8 in March 2024. With the brand's V-10-powered supercar now relegated to automotive history books, car collections, and future high-end car auctions, anticipation is building for the next R8.

Audi has not made a definitive statement either about bringing the R8 back, but there are a few things we can all count on. Regardless of what it's called, the next Audi supercar will not have a petroleum-fueled V10 engine. With Audi walking away from gas cars, Audi's highest-performance car will be electric.

Updated 2025 VW Jetta and Jetta GLI offer refined style and better value
VW refines its Jetta and Jetta GLI gateway models
2025 VW Jetta GLI left front three-quarter view driving on a paved road in the countryside with mountains in the background.

Volkswagen EVs get a lot of coverage, but the company isn't abandoning gas-powered. Volkswagen introduced the 2025 Jetta and Jetta GLI with new exterior style accents, colors, and wheel choices, plus an updated interior, including a new dash with a floating 8-inch display. Aware of Jetta's entry-level role in the brand's model lineup, VW also promises the 2025 Jetta starting price will be lower than the 2024 Jetta with an automatic transmission, which starts at $21,995.
Why the VW Jetta matters
2025 Jetta and Jetta GLI Reveal | Volkswagen of America
Since its introduction in 1980, the Jetta has been Volkswagen's best-selling car in North America. VW sells many Jettas to first-time new car buyers, newly graduated college students, and people looking for value in a new car that seats five. VW also views the Jetta as a gateway car for future car sales when owners have positive experiences with their Jettas and are inclined to stay loyal to the VW brand.

Because Jetta is the lowest-priced VW in the U.S., buyers benefit from new features and technologies earlier and at a lower cost than they might with other brands or models. VW hopes to benefit from current and future sales by continuing to attract new customers by updating the Jetta platform and keeping the entry price low for the brand.
