Las Vegas, NV – October 30, 2018 – Today Jeff Allen, owner of Flat 12 Gallery, debuted his newest one-of-a-kind vehicle, morphing a 1963 Volvo 122S Amazon with a 2013 Grand Sport Corvette from Copart to create the ”#VO6” at the Shell “Pioneering Performance” Pavilion at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
“The #V06 isn’t the normal classic car build. I wanted to do something special – never-been-done-before – for the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.” said Jeff Allen. “This is a car that makes you look twice but can also perform like a beast. Our test drives have been phenomenal.”
Over the last few months, Jeff Allen’s Flat 12 Gallery team transformed the Volvo 122’s 85HP performance level into a 600HP beast that makes full use of the Pennzoil Synthetics under the hood, a Lingenfelter Built LS7, Forgeline Wheels and Baer Brakes.
After a cross-country tour the “#V06,” as it is affectionately named, will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson with all proceeds benefiting the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which offers financial assistance to students pursuing an automotive career.
“It was very exciting to see this build come to life,” said Mark Henry, Brand, Communications and Influencer Manager for Shell Lubricants. “Shell and Pennzoil are privileged to work with Jeff and the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund to help young people pursue automotive careers.”
The end result is what Jeff Allen considers the ultimate “enthusiast” car, capable of competing in a plethora of events from road rallies, airstrip attacks, autocross events, drag racing and drifting. The V06 is the type of car enthusiasts could take out every weekend to compete at different events.
