Badass is just the beginning – Detroit Speed built a muscle car out of the Chevelle 1970.
The American term, muscle car, is used to refer to a variety of high performance vehicles.
Not only are they personified as beasts, with their high-revving roars and engine hearts pumping huge amounts of fuel, but also they ruled the streets.
As a matter of fact, at the racetracks there’s no doubt you would see car enthusiasts flock to watch them duke it out on the track.
When we read about Moe, a first-timer of Detroit Speed Inc, he delivered his 1970 Chevelle and explained he wanted a daily driver.
But this meant it had to merit classification as a super car, so it was more than simply transforming into a muscle car.
It needed the control and power to handle twists and turns and be equally capable at high speeds.
