Rezvani Tank
Rezvani Tank - Rezvani’s naming structure is refreshingly honest; the Beast supercar and Tank SUV are fitting and apt, if ever so slightly cheesy, without being boring or derivative. But did Rezvani have to make the Tank so ugly? Vehemently abandoning the ‘less is more’ approach can be a good thing, but unfortunately this isn’t an example of that. Tone it down 10% and it'd be the right blend of sci-fi and action movie, without the cartoonish hyperbole.

Classic Alpine models
These two Alpine models: Forget vintage Ferraris, with an embarrassment of riches I’d head straight to Alpine for a classic. Either the Le Marquis prototype or the one-off Meyrignac wedge will do. Or both. With such a rich history of stunning cars, the revived Alpine has plenty to go on for its future cars.
