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 Vtwin 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.
