Alex Figge is a professional racecar driver. Having piloted racing karts, off-road Trophy Trucks, Indy Cars, and most recently a race-prepped Mclaren MP4-12C in the Pirelli World Challenge, he knows a thing or two fast cars. When he decided he wanted a custom built muscle car, he went to the Roadster Shop and started with their Fast Track chassis. It features tubular control arms, double-adjustable Penske dampers, and Hyperco springs. Then they added a 635 horsepower GM LS3. Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires – 295 front and 345 rear – keep things glued to the ground.

All of that power is driven to the ground through a custom Bowler Performance Transmissions prepped Tremec T-56 Magnum manual transmission with a Centerforce flywheel and clutch system. The Bowler Tremec transmission gives Alex the ultimate control when cruising in his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. His car also includes a Bowler Shift Lever.  Check out the gallery below to take a closer look.
