I have loved muscle cars since I was a kid. As an adult, watching the masters like Chip foose and his counterparts on countless car shows on sky tv strengthened that love even more. I knew some day, I would build the car of my dreams, and that day is finally here.
I am going to build a car that embodies everything I love about motoring. Retro style, Lots of usable power, and as much 21st century auto tech. as I can get in. I want a retro bruiser with all the mod cons.
The current plan is, 600hp LS3 motor,
full air Suspension upgrades and sway bars managed by Accuair ride management
modern design red leather interior
digital computer controlled dash and electronics
lots of custom gizmos and gadgets
Paint wise I am thing of a dark but heavily metalic grey. Almost like shadow chrome you get on some wheels.
Bespoke body mods including front valance, rear diffuser, side skirts and rear gill.
Lots of carbon trim
The majority of the build work will be taken care off by the excellent Retro Power
