This V10 Chevrolet Chevelle restomod is available from Bring a Trailer and it looks awesome.
It should be in the next Fast and Furious movie: we can totally picture Vin Diesel driving it down the highway.
In theory, this is a 1967 Chevy Chevelle but in practice, this V10-powered restomod combines various elements from different eras.
The first thing we need to address is the engine.
Under the hood lives an 8.3-liter V10 borrowed from a Dodge Viper.
CHECK THIS OUT!
As standard, the Viper engine delivers 700 hp but this particular V10 also uses a Paxton supercharger, so we suspect this may actually put out a lot more horsepower.
Unfortunately, we can’t know for sure because the listing doesn’t mention how much power the engine makes.
Hopefully more than 1,000 hp.
However, what do we know is that power is delivered to the rear wheels courtesy of a Tremec six-speed manual transmission.
On the surface, the Chevy Chevelle looks standard except for the Forgeline wheels and the new LED headlamps, but there’s actually a lot going on underneath the body work.
The car sits on a modern chassis, paired with Ridetech air suspension and modern disc brakes.
The same applies to the interior.
Vinyl and suede upholstery with contrast red stitching was used for the seats, the center console and the door panels.
However, the seller also added digital gauges, climate control and power windows.
The V10 Chevy Chevelle is available from Bring a Trailer with just over 3,000 miles on the clock.
Mind you, this doesn’t include mileage before the restoration.
The current bid is $60,000 with five days to go.
