Restomod ’66 Chevy Chevelle Modernizes a Classic with 980hp LS7

A 1966 Chevelle concept tune that takes advantage of all the cool advancements in automobile technology over the past five decades? Color us interested.

It’s just a series of teasers for now, but in a couple of weeks, tuning company Ringbrothers will bring their Chevelle project nicknamed “Recoil” to life at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

They claim the Recoil “blends the raw power of a race car with the sleek and detailed finish of a show car” featuring a Whipple-supercharged Wegner Motorsports LS7 V8 engine pushing out 980 horsepower to the rear wheels.

The car itself has been renovated with hand-laid carbon fiber panels and trim pieces, modern HRE Wheels and numerous other interesting details like the LED-style lights that resemble those of the pre-facelift, 5th-gen Camaro.

“We are excited to reveal “Recoil” at SEMA Show this year,” said Jim Ring, co-owner of Ringbrothers. “We put a lot of hours and work into this car and we are proud of the results. The Chevelle is as beautiful as it is fast and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
