2020 Rezvani Tank is JL Wrangler-based, with mad power and James Bond toys

A 1,000-hp Hellcat engine and ... electrified door handles, anyone?
The 2020 Rezvani Tank marks the second generation of the totally over-the-top SUV. While it's only been around since about 2017, the original version was based on the outgoing JK Jeep Wrangler. So it only made sense to update the design for the latest JL Jeep Wrangler.
The updated design is clearly evolved from the original. There are bulges and scallops everywhere. It's boxier, though, with a flatter roofline and more conventional side windows. The rear suicide doors with obscured door handles are gone in favor of much more conventional doors and handles. The interior is still just a dressed-up version of the standard Jeep interior, but it's better than the last one because the JL interior is such a leap forward over the JK's.
The Tank still has an absurd feature list. Going for the Tank Military trim gets you bulletproof glass and doors, explosive protection, a self-sealing gas tank, run-flat tires, night vision and thermal cameras, strobe lights and sirens. And then there are some James Bond-esque features such as a smoke screen, electrified door handles, gas masks and, seriously, protection from electromagnetic pulses (EMPs).
