Originally built in partnership by Hurst Performance Vehicles and BFGoodrich® Tires and introduced as a limited-edition prototype vehicle at NSRA Nationals in 2010, the Hurst Redline V6 Camaro Series will soon be available to consumers for purchase. Long known for its highly collectible, limited-edition muscle cars, Hurst announced plans today to manufacture the new vehicle in partnership with well-known builder and fabricator Pratt & Miller Engineering. The vehicle will come equipped with special edition 245/55R18 BFGoodrich® Redline Radial T/A® tires.
A number of the industry's leading companies have partnered to create the Hurst Redline V6 Camaro Series, including Hurst Performance Vehicles, BFGoodrich Tires, Flowmaster, Inc., Detroit Speed, Inc. and Vision Legend Wheels. These highly collectible vehicles will be assembled by Pratt & Miller Engineering in New Hudson, Mich.
"The legendary performance heritage that Hurst and BFGoodrich Tires both enjoy is what makes this project so special," said Richard Winchester, field marketing manager for BFGoodrich Tires. "These two companies working together in conjunction with the other partners is a natural fit and the result is going to be a vehicle with instant curb appeal."
The Hurst Redline V6 Camaro Series will be available as a convertible or coupe, featuring a retro look with the feel of a true performance vehicle. Exterior upgrades include a unique combination of graphics and aerodynamic enhancements. Specially designed, five-spoke Hurst Vision Legend alloy wheels are unique to the Redline Series.
"The Hurst Redline V6 Camaro received a tremendous amount of positive feedback when we launched it at NSRA Nationals in 2010, so we thought it would be even cooler if we made it available to consumers," said Chris Phillips, CEO of Hurst Performance Vehicles. "The sound, look, feel and engineering excellence of these cars are just what consumers expect from a Hurst-engineered vehicle."
Additional upgrades include a Hurst HARD-Drive "Pistol Grip" shifter and Hurst-embroidered head rests and floor mats. This whole package is put to the ground through a Detroit Speed Fifth Generation F-Body suspension kit. The kit includes a larger-diameter front and rear anti-roll bar packaged with "Detroit Tuned" lowering springs with increased spring rate. Special BFGoodrich Radial T/A Redline Edition rubber was designed for exceptional grip on the pavement. Flowmaster's legendary cat-back exhaust gives these vehicles the sound that only a Flowmaster-and-Hurst combination can produce.
The Hurst Redline V6 Camaro Series will be available at any of Feldman Automotive Group's greater Detroit metro-area dealerships, as well as online at www.feldmanauto.com.
