One of One. This is a once in a lifetime OPPORTUNITY to own the most esteemed and awarded car of the 2018-2019 International Show Car Association (ISCA) Circuit.

Imagine a show where only the best builds in the world are invited. Every year, the Autorama calls all custom builders and hot rodders to Detroit. They gather to crown a new king for the year. The "Great 8" are chosen based on outstanding features, then they are scrutinized by industry leaders. Only one car will win the Ridler. It is a memorial trophy to Don Ridler, the iconic leader of the Michigan Hot Rod Association.

This is not like reality TV. Great cars are not built in a week, or even a month. What you see is the result of over 10 years and countless man-hours. Literally, the only parts that were purchased can be counted on one hand: Four tires and one dipstick. Everything else was either fabricated by hand or machined from forged alloys.

It shares no suspension or chassis components with any other car. Instead of an LS engine, the builders chose the best: Nelson Racing. Fed by Nelson's patented mirror-image turbos, this 515ci (8.44 liter) Big Block offers over 1,000 horsepower on pump gas. Behind that is a Bowler TH400 transmission and a torque tube to the independent rear suspension. It goes without saying that this car deserved the Ridler award last year. The attention to detail from the interior to the drivetrain covers is unlike anything you will see again.

Inside, the upholstery color is "Terra Cotta". Nothing about the interior is shared with another car. Due to the extensive roof chop and the channeling of the floor, the seats, glass, and every interior panel are unique. Even the gauges have an Art-Deco design that is pleasing to the driver.
