    The Streetfighter :: X132 Hellcat :: Confederate Motorcycles

    Confederate Motors Inc, makers of handcrafted heirloom motorcycles, unveiled their anticipated third generation Hellcat today. Drawing on the first and second generations' distinctive drag race architecture, the company's new X132 Hellcat advances that architecture with innovative engineering and avant-garde design. The result is yet another iconic machine that challenges the paradigms of the American motoring landscape.

    The company's founder and CEO, H. Matthew Chambers, described the new Hellcat by saying, "This is the motorcycle we were conceived to execute when I founded the company 21 years ago. I have every confidence that we have delivered all we ever dreamed of giving." 

    Named after the legendary F6F Hellcat fighter plane of WWII, the X132 Hellcat is the result of an uncompromised design and manufacturing approach. The centerpiece of this approach is the Hellcat's billet aluminum case. Instead of the usual casting method, the Hellcat's case is machined from two blocks of billet 6061 aircraft grade aluminum.

    Chambers said, "This new case unites America's best V-Twin technology and America's superior powertrain technology into a singularity. Although this is the most expensive material selection and craft methodology, it is simply the best approach for maximizing strength and guaranteeing permanence." Confederate's lead designer, Edward Jacobs, said, "We've always dreamed of designing the core of the machine. For the first time in our 21 year history, we've been able to do that with the unitized case of this new Hellcat. The result is the first pure and undiluted Confederate."

    The company's uncompromised approach does not end with the case. "Because we design and craft each Confederate motorcycle to be a multi-generational heirloom product, we require that each component, from the carbon fiber wheels to the smallest stainless steel bolts, be of the highest quality, no matter the cost. Our clients deserve nothing less," said Clay Morrison, the company's Director of Marketing. 

    With over 40 units already pre-sold, the company began production on January 2011 at a rate of two units per week. Pricing for the X132 Hellcat was set at $45,000 through February 29, 2012. The price rised to $49,500 on March 1, 2012. Orders may be placed online at www.workandcycle.com

    For the past the 21 years, Confederate Motors, Inc. has designed and crafted uncompromised heirloom motorcycles for the motoring purist. For more information, please visit www.confederate.com
