Meet ‘Recoil’ – A Supercharged ’66 Chevrolet Chevelle




SEMA, which opens in short order, is a compelling mixture of classic, contemporary and future cars. Probably none will exude that better than the “Recoil,” a one-of-a-kind 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle.

It’s being built by the award-winning street machine builder Ringbrothers out of Spring Green, Wisconsin. They say they have blended the raw power of a race car with the sleek and detailed finish of a show car to create “Recoil.”


Ringbrothers calls its creation a “refined race car” but from the images shared, we call it a styling race car, too. The Chevelle is finished in a BASF Glasurit 90-Line Waterborne paint color dubbed “Sand Storm,” and is adorned with custom, hand-laid carbon fiber panels and trim pieces that show off the fit and finish. (Or so they claim – can’t really tell from the pictures.)

The Chevelle is also sporting the newest Ringbrothers series wheels from HRE Wheels, also making their worldwide debut at SEMA. No specifics are available pn these particular wheels but HRE does stunning work like with its Monoblok Classics.


“Recoil” gets its muscle from a powerful, Whipple-supercharged Wegner Motorsports LS7 engine that produces 980 horsepower. Flowmaster mufflers enhance the roar of the engine while Royal Purple synthetic motor oil keeps it running.

Attending SEMA? The “Recoil” which debuts on Nov. 4, will be in the Royal Purple booth.
