Taking another look!

We showed you the Hellcat before...but its worth another look! With a price tag of  $49, was a great buy considering only 164 Confederate X132 Hellcats to be made from the Alabama-based company.
At the heart of the X132 Hellcat is the machined aluminum engine case, which started life as two blocks of 6061 billet aluminum. “This new case unites America’s best V- twin technology and America’s superior powertrain technology into a singularity,” explained Confederate Founder & CEO H. Matt Chambers. “Although this is the most expensive material selection and craft methodology, it is simply the best approach for maximizing strength and guaranteeing permanence.”

Once fabricated, those two blocks of metal create a 2,163cc v-twin motor that puts out 132hp at the crank, and an entirely necessary 150 lbs•ft of torque. Mated to a five-speed close-ratio gearbox, the Confederate X132 Hellcat should have plenty of “go” to compliment its “show” and also comes fitted with custom 50mm forks by Marzocchi and a custom rear shock by Race-Tech. The entire X132 package tips the scales at 500 lbs.

Things that make you smile!

Built by Max Hazan and detailed by RocketGarage, this XS650 is an epic display of one man's imagination realized in metal.
