Best known for their previously wild projects, Rezvani grabbed the public’s attention quite convincingly with their most capable vehicle on and off the road. Aftermarket companies specializing in this type of work need to be unique to stand up to their competitors, which is exactly what Rezvani did.
Conveniently, they’ve added some extremely quirky features that set them apart from other companies making similar vehicles.
The company is once again in the spotlight with the release of the Rezvani Hercules, as they offer their version of an off-road 6×6 platform. The Hercules is based on the Jeep JL chassis, and here’s more about it.
Technical specifications of the Rezvani Hercules 6×6
The Rezvani Hercules was made available in late 2020 and offered plenty of features to brag about upon release. However, it costs a minimum of $195,000 and over $350,000, based on trim level. The Hercules is based on the Gladiator chassis from Jeep (6×6), although very few of the Jeep components remain. Still based on the JL chassis, it featured solid axles, which articulate exponentially better than traditional MacPherson-style suspensions.
The Hercules has a curb weight of 4,651 pounds, which is not very light. To stop the big 6×6, Rezvani incorporated 8-piston calipers and 16-inch rotors to provide the braking power needed. These rotors combined with the Hercules were larger than the wheels of some vehicles.
Rezvani also offered an upgraded version, the Hercules 6×6 Military, an armored version of the regular one. It featured bulletproof glass and body panels, explosion protection, smoke screen diversion, door handles that shock you and blinding lights. The Rezvani Hercules was able to handle any situation, especially with what was in it. It also featured gas masks and an EMP system, the proper use of which we don’t know. For this insanely spec model, it will cost you a minimum of $325,000.
The Building Biology of Rezvani Hercules
To match the Hercules’ rugged looks, Rezvani gave you a few engines and interior options to choose from. The interior was not as beautiful as the German interior, although they offered a plethora of stitching combinations for seats to suit the driver’s preference.
Standard equipment was the 3.6L Pentastar V6, taken from the Jeep Gladiator. It was capable of pushing 285 horsepower and 260 ft-lbs of torque. With its starting price tag, it’s probably safe to say you’ve opted for the bigger engine choices. This was also not in line with Rezvani, so they offered a 6.4L SRT V8, which put out a healthy 500 horsepower. Thanks to the low torque of V8s, the Hercules certainly had a decent power band, enough for Rezvani to list his power figures.
Rezvani’s top-of-the-line option was the 7.0L supercharged V8, capable of pushing a whopping 1,300 horsepower. Thanks to the supercharged V8, the Hercules had great acceleration in all power ranges.
All of these were mated to your choice of a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission. While some may be concerned about the automatic transmission being able to handle a lot of power, Rezvani has cleared up any doubts by getting his transmission from a RAM 1500 TRX, which proves to hold its own.
Hercules 6×6 Military: A Collection Of Incredibly Bad Features
To fully demonstrate what the company was capable of, Rezvani had plenty of options to offer, at the right price. The off-road package added 5 extra inches of ground clearance for the Hercules, courtesy of some premium Fox shocks. This provided additional ground clearance for off-road obstacles, improved suspension feel and a more aggressive look. Rezvani compensated for this by offering auto-retracting side steps, similar to some of its other models. Additional add-ons sat separately on a switch panel and included thermal night vision to see heat maps of your front view, a smoke screen for a convenient escape and other quirky features.
Other features included bulletproof glass and body armor, military-grade runflats, extremely bright lighting, and more. As for safety equipment, it included a first aid kit, gas masks, a pepper spray dispenser and a hypothermia kit. The Hercules is tactically tuned for literally every scenario, making them different from its competitors. Some focus on luxury amenities and others on survival.
The Rezvani Hercules 6×6 is tactically ready
With the creation of the Hercules, Rezvani has proven to be able to create quite versatile vehicles. Many companies have created their own renditions of vehicles, although none seem to match what Rezvani has produced. This is mainly due to the incredible features that the Hercules can offer. With amenities you’ll rarely use, but could potentially be useful, the Hercules is undoubtedly a very capable yet cool car.
