New Royal Muffler Z06 Project Rolling On Forgelines

Who is “Royal Muffler,” you may (quite reasonably) ask? If the name brings to mind jewel-encrusted, ermine-lined exhausts, you’re not too far off – they’re high-end fabricators out of Chatsworth, California, but a look at their project car portfolio shows that they’re about a lot more than just mandrel-bent tube. They’re done everything from exotics and euro luxury cars to sport compacts, hot rods, and trucks, but what makes them interesting to us is their latest project – a track-ready Corvette Z06 that we’d love to get our hands on…

We haven’t scared up too many details on the car yet, but one obvious upgrade are the matte black Forgeline ZX3R’s in 18×10.5 up front and 19×13 in back.

Rather than the standard 5-lug setup, they’re utilizing Forgeline’s Center Lock Conversion system, which puts application-specific adapters on the car that use special lug nuts to act as drive pins for the wheels.

The end result is a very lightweight wheel that is set up for quick changes on the pit road – and it looks pretty damn good, too…
