1000hp Worth Of Recoil
Excellence In Execution

I’ll get straight to the point here. I don’t normally shoot cars like this – I just don’t. My time in Japan is mainly spent featuring rides that are usually a collection of bolt-on parts, finished off here and there with a few custom touches – just enough to call the project unique. Granted, when we’re dealing with modern cars, there isn’t really much else you can do. You rely on what the industry supports and backs you and tuners with, and call it a day. But when it comes to the older stuff, that’s when we truly begin to see the actual skills in fabrication that a builder has. It’s then that you really see a true transformation and a coherent theme come alive in a specific build.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the US, and especially so at the SEMA Show where the latest and most badass custom builds are brought out…

Ringbrothers-Recoil-37

At this year’s event one machine in particular stood out. So much so in fact, that it’s one of the few cars that I revisited multiple times to get a better look at, and of course, add to the top of my ‘to feature’ list.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-01

Seeing that I do live on the other side of the world I hadn’t heard much about Ringbrothers up until a few months ago. In my downtime I always check out Jay Leno’s YouTube channel, and that’s where I first came to hear of these guys and be introduced to the type of work they do. Looking at the DeTomaso Pantera they took to Jay’s Garage, I remember thinking that restomodding sure has evolved over the years – something that was further emphasised by actually seeing the car in person at SEMA.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-03

But then I saw the other car they built, and my mind was blown.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-02

Such is the level of detail in this build, that it took a really long time to go over the 1966 Chevelle and its underlying jet fighter theme. As you make your way through this story you will see this for yourselves – a build where literally every surface, every addition as well as every omission works beautifully together to create something very special.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-36

I guess this is the stuff you can achieve when you invest half a million dollars into a build, but like I’ve already said, I’ve just never seen this level of execution before. ‘Recoil‘ as the Chevelle is known, is nothing short of restomod perfection!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-22

It’s almost hard to believe now, but back in June this car was still in a bare metal state. Aside from showing just how fast Ringbrothers work, it also gives you an idea of where a full restoration process of this caliber has to start from. It’s necessary to get the most important stuff right, and that starts off with the bodywork.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-05

Sculpting bodywork into a form that not only looks factory enough to fool the eye, but at the same time contains subtle features that somehow make it look more modern, more flowing and with a lot more aggression, is something that Ringbrothers are well known for. The way they have integrated the side-exit exhausts on each side of the rear lower flanks is a perfect example. All of this sits over a Roadster Shop custom chassis sporting the sort of goodies you would want to see on a car that’s been designed and built to hit the corners.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-40

One quick ride in the car to sense the immediate and savage acceleration that the blown engine delivers is all you need to realise just how appropriate the Recoil name is. But let’s stick to those body details for a little longer, because they’re what really sets the visual tone of the reimagined Chevelle. Carbon fiber would probably be the last material you’d expect to find adorning an American muscle car from the mid-’60s, but literally everything that was once chrome has been replaced with the composite. The vented bonnet is a work of art, from the way it’s designed and constructed to fall over the louvered intake, to the way it’s been painted in order to highlight its composition. To keep things secure it’s been pinned down with a pair of Ringbrothers billet bonnet pins which are themselves little works of detailed art.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-04

Take a look at the side mirrors, which again are built from a combination of carbon fiber and billet aluminium, and are formed to further support the jet fighter feel.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-29

And yes, there is a bullet-shaped RePlay camera mounted underneath each one. But look beyond the design of it – enlarge this picture via presentation mode and savour the faultless fabrication and the quality of the billet aluminium parts that make up the support and main structure. Bolt-on catalogue parts eat your heart out!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-08

Recoil sits low but at a purposeful ride height. AFCO shocks are fitted at each corner and support a C5 Corvette independently-sprung front end and a Roadster Shop 4-link setup in the rear.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-19

It all allows the custom HRE wheels to tuck nicely inside the gently blistered fenders. These collaborative wheels – the second design the two companies have worked on together – are sized at 19×9.5-inch up front and a barrel-wide 20×13-inch out back. Grip is provided by Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres – 275/35R19 and steamroller-sized 345/30ZR20 monstrosities front and rear respectively.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-30

Braking is taken care of by a quartet of Baer 6-pot callipers that bite down on big 2-piece rotors. The front-to-rear balance easily adjusted through a Wilwood bias knob on the dashboard.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-07

A custom car deserves a custom badge and if you look closely enough this one reveals a little secret. 1KHP. What do you think that refers to?

Motor Madness
Ringbrothers-Recoil-16

The motor of course. Truth be told it’s not quite 1000hp – 20hp shy to be precise – but who the hell cares when it’s presented in a fashion like this!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-09

Given the feeling I was getting from the car, I had high expectations lifting up the lightweight carbon hood for the first time – and I was certainly not let down. The Wegner Motorsports dry-sumped LS7 almost looks compact in the center of the Chevelle’s expansive shaved and smoothed engine bay. For pure function’s sake, it’s been positioned right back against the firewall to give the car great front to rear weight balance.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-12

The LS7 is built around an RHS block and heads and features a forged bottom end that provides the bulletproof base that a blown setup like this needs to reliably churn out solid numbers. And that’s 980hp to the wheels let’s not forget!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-13

Pump gas is provided by an Aeromotive pump and Holley fuel injection system, while forced air comes from a Whipple twin-screw supercharger that supplies boost from idle for instant throttle response. There is power and torque everywhere throughout the rev range – enough to light up the massive 345-section rubber through the first three gears!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-11

As you can imagine, a motor like this will inhale air at an alarming rate once you start working your way up the rev counter. To ensure that it’s never starved of oxygen, Ringbrothers fabricated this airbox, of which the two louvered sections peak through the carbon bonnet.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-24

I’m sure that at speed there is positive pressure being generated in there, and that in turn helps ram air into the blower.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-15

Ringbrothers modified a set of Flowmaster stainless steel headers to get them to the specs they were after, and continued them on with the custom twin-exit exhaust we saw earlier on. The sound, as you might imagine, is pure thunder!

Ringbrothers-Recoil-10

Here’s a further example of just how much work it took to not only allow the HRE wheels to sit just right with the custom suspension setup, but also allow them enough space to turn. And since fender wells tubbed in metal is just so last year, Ringbrothers executed these ones in carbon fiber. As you do….

Ringbrothers-Recoil-18

I haven’t seen this quality of carbon fiber since I was at the Pagani factory in Italy last year. The hood is double skinned of course, and has structure to it and impressive rigidity. The center is protected with some metal because that blower gets pretty hot when the car is unleashed in anger around the track.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-14

The details continue wherever you look. Check out these billet double-hinged bonnet supports, which have a little horizontally-mounted gas strut to even make lifting the hood a sensory experience. The good thing is, they are right out of Ringbrothers’ catalogue, so anyone with a period muscle car wanting to spice things up a little can head over to the website and put an order in.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-17

980hp of fury may be nice and all, but somehow you need to channel all that power to the wheels. That’s why Recoil has nothing but the best in the driveline department, starting off with a reworked Tremec T56 from Bowler Transmission. The gearbox sends drive to a hefty John’s Industries 35-spline Ford 9-inch rear end, finishing off with Dynotech driveshafts.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-35

With six ratios to play with there’s never a corner exit that Recoil isn’t able to exploit all of its grunt.

Ringbrothers Signature
Ringbrothers-Recoil-20

To get the feel of the car just right, paint was always going to be a tough choice. But after much debate, Ringbrothers decided that a custom mix from BASF was the only way to go. They call this military-inspired hue Sand Storm.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-21

I always say that a good looking car should look its meanest from the rear three-quarter view. Well just look above… I rest my case! There is so much detail back there too – carbon bumpers and a custom smoothed out fascia that proudly wears the Recoil badge, all topped off with AM Hot Rod Glass taillights that are fixed in place with polished bolts for added contrast.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-06

From a distance the trunk spoiler may look like a simple addition, but get up close and the level of fit and finish is totally in tune with all the other details we’ve seen.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-39

And yes. it looks a thousand times better out on the open road! Thankfully we were able to get some action shots of the Chevelle doing its things around Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s access roads.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-23

I’m pretty sure I’ve never posted a car feature with so many pictures, but like I said at the beginning of this post – I just don’t get to see this level of execution very often in Japan.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-28

The time eventually came where I had to pull myself away from the exquisitely appointed exterior and actuate the Ringbrothers billet door handle on the driver’s side door. What followed next had my jaw on the floor…

Welcome To Top Gun
Ringbrothers-Recoil-31

And I thought I was impressed with the exterior! If the car executed some of the highest levels of craftsmanship on the outside, I’m unable to quantify the skill that has gone into designing and physically crafting the interior.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-41

Recoil‘s cabin puts most concept cars to shame, and it’s here that the money involved in the build begins to make sense! Look at the door trim, the aluminium door handle wrapped in hand-stitched leather, the bicycle brake lever you need to pull on to open the door, and the round billet rotary switch that activates the electric windows.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-32

Behind the jet-fighter-like front seats – which are impressively comfortable and supportive I should add – the rear bench has been deleted. But take a look at the aluminium metal work that wraps around the cabin, down to the sills and across the whole floor and transmission tunnel. Those are all handcrafted pieces with a hydrographically-printed pattern that almost looks like carbon fiber from a distance.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-25

The dash has been shaved and there’s nothing there aside from a plastic panel with a Recoil logo on the passenger side. Behind the custom steering wheel and attached right onto the steering column is where all the instrumentation and switchgear is neatly arranged.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-33

Yep, total concept car stuff right here! That illuminated start button is a Ringbrothers original product called the Terminator Touch Start System. You tap it with you finger and it senses your heat. One tap gets you into accessory mode, two taps starts the engine and a tap after that you kill the ignition. On the same tiltable and adjustable binnacle is where the back-lit Racepak LCD dash display and data logger is located. All you need is right there. Nothing more, nothing less.

Ringbrothers-Recoil-42

The car is even fitted with an audio system and air conditioning. I won’t say more, just look at the details…

Ringbrothers-Recoil-34

Nothing has been forgotten, and once you lift the carbon trunk lid you are treated to clean and simple space sporting the same aluminium metalwork we saw in the cabin. At the center of it all is the fuel tank with a centrally mounted filler. On the right side – and this is something that appears on most Ringbrothers builds – are terminals to connect a battery charger up to, because let’s face it – the cars they build aren’t the type that you’d drive on a daily basis. But you absolutely could if you wanted to…

Ringbrothers-Recoil-38

If I had to choose one car that I could take away from the 2014 SEMA Show this is it right here. Once the Chevelle Recoil has made all of its show appearances across the country it will eventually be handed back to its owner, who I’m sure must be beyond anxious to get behind the wheel and drive it properly. It’s cars like these that exemplify what the tuning and hot rod scenes are all about – raising the bar by combining top-level craftsmanship along with innovation.

This car cannot be faulted. Absolutely amazing. Now this will break the internet!

3

Whilst I don't quite see the "fighter-jet" influences (been a plane nut for 3 decades) I do love so many aspects of this build. The seats remind me more of old WWII bomber pilot seats, the engine and engine bay is utterly immaculate, the interior is perfect, and the overall fit and finish are just stunning. I thought that the Pantera was rad, but this is a WHOLE other level of amazingness!!!

5

I was going to say this is an easy Car of the Month winner but it's so much more than that. Car of the year stuff right here. I just kept pouring over the details and was continually amazed at each picture that came after the last. Beautiful car inside and out.

6

I am absolutely floored by every single thing on this machine. 
I think you ended the year with a bang a bit too early...

7

Dino featuring a Ring Bros car makes me so happy. This is Speedhunting!

8

Thank god for presentation mode. Car looks amazing once viewed in presentation mode. Detail work on this car is outstanding

9

Wow. Just wow.

10

Wow! That colour works on this car! Dino, your skills really brought out the best of this feature. Car of the month for me. It might be car of the year too.

11

12

The should have painted it Navy Blue, F4U Corsair style. Or silver-yellow with checker stripes like the P51 Mustang

13

I love it and all the work that's gone into it. I love the little custom touches, the colors used, the carbon and shades of satin, matt and gloss.....but I think it's a slight case of less may have been more here. Just a little too much going on for me.

14

I like those cameras under the door mirrors. Make them forward facing and you can drive this LHD car in a RHD country.

15

jaw to the floor . . . simply outstanding.

16

I'm a mopar guy and i can truely appreciate how beautiful this build is!

17

Haven't read the story yet, just the first couple of sentences and already I'm a little annoyed. You've seriously understated yourself and the rides you feature Dino!

18

I'm not really a hard core muscle car guy but this ! It's so goooddd

19

Jizz everywhere..that's how awesome this car is..

20

This is very rapidly approaching automotive perfection, mind blown, internet broken and in-pants crisis narrowly avoided.

That said, as Dino mentioned, a lot of this is very much akin to concept car prototype stuff. Some mindbendingly cool touches, but at the same time so much stuff that is unavailable...
Sure, that makes this a genuine 'one-of-a-kind' car, but at the same time, unattainable for us mere mortals.

21

Good Lord that is CLEAN.

22

This is a piece of modern art. So badass it could be the car of a villain from James Bond.

23

You really need a "download all pictures" button, because this is amazing. I am not really into muscle cars, but this, this I like.

25

Dear Santa..

26

its super awesome and all but i only got semi rigid...maybe i'm jaded..

27

Hail to the king, baby!
This is perfect.

28

I'm surprised it have stereo system !

29

its beautiful, i love every single detail in and out ... 
but there is a detail that bugs me ... having the air filters in those openings in the hood, would mean that this car cant drive if it started raining ... i mean i know its a show car, but still ...
anyhow, the rest is perfect.

30
speedhunters_dino

Coyote_ar I wouldn't drive this in the rain if I had paid to get it built haha

31

OperationIvy Haha interesting suggestion!

33

This thing is absolutely amazing, sensory overload at its finest. There are a couple of '66 chevelle's in town where I live, one is being an original big block car, but needless to say they don't quite look as cool as this.

34

Brentonmartian I'm just being truthful. Very few cars from Japan that I've shot even get close to the level of fabrication and overall execution

Dino,
Don't tell me you didn't recognise the origins of that big red R on the front grille!!!

44
speedhunters_dino

Brett Allen I agree.

45

This is my dream pro-touring chevelle and how can it be argued with the power of the ls7 and lightweight body

46

Good thing is that they didn´t put any overfenders on it... 

Beautiful.

47

Just awesome!! The only muscle car that I would actually drive. This my friends, has to be everybody style. Just amazing. How much? Half a million? It's worth it

48

Amazing car, but that intake setup isn't 'ram air'. The location of the intake is in a typical low pressure zone, making them act the opposite (less air pressure with increasing speed). I love speedhunters but work on fact checking your statements!

49

Jaw dropingly beautiful - the attention to detail is 2nd to none....
This must be a dream & don't wake me up!
Thanks for sharing with us a truly amazing piece of art - I've always loved Chevelles & this stands out as personally by far the best I've seen...

50

# the bollocks.

Can i say that?????

51

speedhunters_dino Not for long, I'm betting. Once word gets back... ;)

52

It's been fascinating to watch these high-end builds evolve over the years. Over four decades of observation, in my case. Just when you think you've seen it all, passed the apex, etc., something like this comes along and resets the curve. I wonder how much longer my poor mind will be able to comprehend it all. A bare shell in June, you say? I need to go lie down for a bit.

53

Back in May this car was still in bare metal as many of the little details were ironed out.  These photos are what it looked like back in May of this year and it didn't even start getting prepped for paint until August!  Quite a long way from the finished product.

54

speedhunters_dino QD ..and boots and pants and boots and pants and boots and pants...

56

This was perhaps THE car I wanted to see at this year's show and it didn't disappoint. I'm jealous you got to take it in at a profile. 

Any more than 3 steps away from this car at the show and it was lost in a sea of people.

57

The body rake, the ride height, the attention to detail - I don't think I've ever seen a Chevelle, or indeed any muscle car, executed so well.

Even the color describes a purposeful, no-bullshit intent. The whole car is clean and devoid of nonsense.

All the fasteners are evenly spaced, there are transitional pieces that cover the spots where the roll bar tubes plug into the floor, the finish is clean, smooth and even across every surface and the secondary rings on the wheels were really a crowning touch.

Yeah, this was done right.

And I LOVE those exhaust tips.

58

Congrats to the builders on this amazing build .. Car of the month for me for certain.

59

Dino,
Did I read this correctly? Entirely made of carbon fiber? If so, Dream Car. I am from that era. I remember when all the muscle cars were introduced. Such a fantasy in a young teenagers eyes. Thanks Man, I appreciated this story very, very much.

60

Wow, Car of the year. One of the craziest builds ever.

61

Custom builds always blow me away. Its the attention to detail that does my head in! You think that you are looking at a Chevelle with nice wheels and paint and a few touches and then you get closer...well, mind blowing.

The American Muscle car has always been a hit and miss for me, there was always some little thing that put me off the car. But this car, oh my god, it is beautiful. I can't see anything that I don't just love, even before you opened the door I was head over heals.

Just completely jaw droppingly stunning.

78

Amazing Build. And great Article Dino! 
Still, something is missing in these photo´s. Idk like.. Bruce Willis.. and Guns.. and Jetfighters..

79

Scott_GTR From Ringbrothers obviously.... (who took it from the R in GT-R)

80

More likely to be a slight vacuum at the air intake but like you'd notice any drop in power in this!

81

amazing car!

82

Had to get a bucket for the drool, lol
This ride is too badass front to back, inside and out. Choice of engine to the interior details are right on the money!
Now if I can see footage of this beast in action....

Again SH, great post and tip of the cap to the builder.

83

I've noticed something with builds like this. Any normal car you see at a show, a nice, clean, custom vw or nissan for example, they look cool in real life, but capture them in the right light from the right angles, and they will usually look even better in photos. But there's something about a ringbrothers build, and other cars of this caliber, that you're just never going to get from pictures, even ones as good as these. Sure you see the insane custom work and even the little details, but seeing it in the flesh is a completely different realm. The finishes on everything are flawless. Every fold, crease, and curve is millimeter perfect. There are no wrench marks on the bolts, no gaps off by even a little bit, not a nick, wrinkle, swirl, smudge, or fingerprint in sight. It's like looking at the best computer rendering in the world, except it was made by human hands in real life.

84

THE DETAIL!!!!!

Holy crap I like this car. I dont usually like super modified street rod type muscle cars but this is soooo good! The beauty of the original design shines through.

85

@Eric Yeah, you are right. However most people don't get to see it in person. The lucky few get to check this out, and even luckier are the ones who get to see it run and hear the motor.

86

How much this ARTWORK costs !!? 
God bless RingBrothers

88

Awesome car, great blend of old and new.

89

SajadSakiani Said " a half million dollars" at the beginning. Damn... Beautiful creation though..

90

This car is very rad. That being said in my opinion there are few things that just stick out like a sore thumb. First is the front bumper, to me it doesn't flow with the rest of the beautiful exterior. Second the frond wheels, the rears look so damn good, yet the fronts look really weird I wish the inner circle was a bit more recessed. Third the over all interior. There is some super rad details, yet the whole design does not work for me. I always view cars from a standpoint of "if I had to live with this car day in and out what would I want. Now while it is very rad looking I just don't think living with that everyday would be a joyful experience. I believe that companies like the Roadster Shop and The Ring Brothers just build shit as a "look what we can do" with no real respect for the over all look of the car. They get so caught up in every last detail that they forget the big picture. It's why I always love what Rad Rides By Troy build. They build some amazing game changing rides, yet they have the restraint to say this is all it needs, as opposed to what else can we do. I am sure most of you will think I am hating on this car, all I am doing is picking it apart and asking the question "if it can be, should it be done" Just some food for thought.

Capital E If you are referring to the seats I can confirm they are very comfy, much more so than some racing bucket made for tiny butts!

93
speedhunters_dino

@Eric Yes, totally agree there. You have to run your fingers over the details, feel for spotless panel gaps, the flawless finish of the paint, the interior metal work laid over the floor, sills and pretty much everything else. They all must be seen up close...

99

Amazing but;

Chassis?

Nothing was done to it? No extra rollover protection obviously (!) but was anything done in terms of strengthening or lightening?

100

@Lou I don't know too much more than what's in the article but I'm guessing the extensive carbon fibre work would contribute to the weight/lightening.

101

Wow, this is amazing does exactly what it is intended to do: look cool and go fast. Great article and write up, thoroughly enjoyed the quality of content!

102

Jaw Dropped. Wow. The details are just mind blowing,

103

This car = Perfection.

104

Say what you want, but even globally there are few at the same level as the Ring Brothers. What impresses me the most is that their cars continue to get better every year. You can really see how they've evolved by looking at their earlier cars. I started paying attention at Dragon and have been in love since.

It sits on a roadster shop chassis, they make the best chassis for any car or truck

That was hands down my favourite car at SEMA last year... The more I looked the new things I saw... 10/10

Full metal jacket

0.5k$ and no billet trunk hinges? With exposed wiring? Could have been a purposefull omission.
