And besides, I really like what this black top and stripes with the white body look like, and the tinted bumpers and trim give a very elegant look. Like many restomods out there, it moves on larger than usual wheels. These rollers come in 22 inches and are wrapped in low-profile tires. Black rims fit well into the two-tone layout. This is Chevelle in a tuxedo!
But don’t confuse this coupe with a gentleman’s car. This simple hood hides the monstrous 8.4-liter LS V8. Not only is it bigger than any engine Chevrolet has ever offered at Chevelle, but it’s also attached to a pair of significant turbochargers from Nelson Racing. The owner of this car says that he has yet to dinosaur it in the current setting, but he estimates that the rear wheels rotate up to about 800 horsepower
Do you still think it looks a little soft?
However, the upgrades do not stop there. The V8 mill breathes through the Magnaflow exhaust system, and all of this surprise hits the wheels through Ford’s nine-inch rear end. Each individual suspension component has been replaced so it moves better than before and handles massive power at full throttle much better.
What I really like about this Chevelle is that the owner keeps most of the interior original. It has a pair of sporty front seats and digital dimensions, but everything else still seems to have been made in the 70’s. Elegant!
Of course, the twin turbo coupe turns into a brutal beast when the V8 unleashes on the tarmac. He turns the rear wheels to third gear and growls as if there is no tomorrow, as the revs are over 2000 rpm. Apparently it makes massive burns effortlessly. Watch everything in the video below and tell me this isn’t the coolest Chevelle you’ve seen this week.
