Revzani’s Cadillac Escalade Offers Bulletproof Armor and 700 HP

Even Rezvani knows you don’t always have to turn things up to 11.

The custom shop has just unveiled a new model called the Arsenal. The heavily modified Cadillac Escalade sports a downright restrained design compared to some of the company’s other “advanced motor vehicles,” particularly the Vengeance, but it still comes packed with absurd features—like bulletproof armor.

First things first, the Arsenal looks ridiculous—just not as ridiculous as something like the Apocalypse. Whereas that SUV looks like something Robocop might drive, the company’s latest looks like an Escalade that’s been dressed up in an over-the-top body kit. Every part of the stately people’s body is bigger and more sculpted than before, from the front end to the protective cladding running along the bottom of the vehicle. It is an SUV that will stand out on the road.

Inside the Rezvani Arsenal

The Arsenal looks plenty rugged, but if you want to up its toughness there’s an optional Military Edition package. The highlights of the specs are its bulletproof armor and glass, but they’re just the start. Other features include steel ram bumpers, electrified door handles, pepper spray dispensers, strobe lights, and, because this is Rezvani we’re talking about, a smoke screen. The package also includes an upgraded suspension and run-flat all-terrain tires. If that’s somehow not enough—and for some doomsday preppers it might not be—you can also opt for stronger armor that can stop assault rifle fire and explosive device detection.

Rezvani may have treated the Escalade’s exterior to a makeover, but the interior has been left relatively untouched. All the luxe touches that drivers have come to expect from Cadillac are present, including the automaker’s massive OLED screen, a heads-up display, and a 19-speaker stereo system. There are three rows of heated and cooled leather seats, which can fit up to seven adults. SUVs equipped with the Military Edition package include a thermal night-vision system.

The Arsenal comes with a 6.2-liter V-8 that produces 425 hp standard. Drivers can opt for a 3.0-liter turbodiesel or a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that produces up to 700 hp. All three mills come mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. No performance numbers were announced, but we imagine all the modifications make the Arsenal slower than the top-of-the-line Escalade V-Series, which can hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 125 mph.

In the market for a battle-ready Escalade. You can put your name down for the Arsenal now with a $500 deposit. Rezvani plans to build just 100 examples of the SUV, which it says starts at $225,000.
