What haven’t The Ring Brothers done? Well whatever it was I think the did it with the debut of Recoil the 980 hp Chevelle.
Mike and Jim Ring never bring a knife to a gunfight, so they brought a 980 horsepower cruise missile constructed out of aircraft-grade alloys and composites and covered in paint befitting a war machine. Named “Recoil,” the ’66 Chevelle made its official debut in the Royal Purple booth at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, surrounded by some of the rarest, coolest and most powerful custom vehicles ever assembled.
“Recoil” is a departure for Ringbrothers, who usually build track-ready street cars – as it is really a street capable track car, complete with a modern art meets fighter jet cockpit and a driver data center complete with power and speed test data.
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, including the floor, door panels and seats, were meticulously hydro-dipped to match the carbon fiber found throughout the car. Five point racing harnesses keep you firmly planted in the 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.
