“Recoil” gets its muscle from a Whipple-supercharged Wegner Motorsports LS7 engine that outputs an astounding 980 horsepower. Special one-off fuel rail covers were precisely constructed for the Whipple supercharger to exactly match the design of the blower’s case. A Holley Fuel Injection System with an Aeromotive fuel cell and pump were installed to keep the 91 Octane fuel feeding monster powerplant. Flowmaster mufflers enhance the roar of the engine while Royal Purple XPR Extreme Performance Racing Oil keeps the engine running at its maximum potential.

Getting the Chevelle in motion are the brand new three-piece forged wheels called “Recoil,” a new model in the Ringbrothers wheel series from HRE that also made their debut at the SEMA Show.  Measuring 19x9 and 20x13, these custom rollers and are shod with 275/35/19 tires up front and massive 345/30/20 tires in the back.

The interior of the Chevelle is completely race-ready and is designed with form over function in mind. The entire interior was fabricated by hand from sheet metal and several interior pieces were meticulously hydro-dipped to match the carbon fiber found throughout the car. Five point racing harnesses keep you firmly planted in the custom crafted seats while a Racepak gauge cluster in a custom Ringbrothers billet housing displays all of the information the driver needs to go fast while keeping tabs on the car’s vital signs.

“Recoil” is finished in a custom BASF Glasurit 90-Line Waterborne paint color named “Sand Storm,” and is adorned with custom, hand-laid carbon fiber panels and trim pieces that show off the highly detailed fit and finish Ringbrothers is known for. The carbon fiber cloth used on the parts for “Recoil” is from the Mirage® line of materials that are custom designed by Composite Envisions. This material is a hybrid of high strength, aerospace grade carbon fiber and a beautiful pure silver plated copper wire.
