"We are thrilled to be a part of this legendary event," said Matt Chambers, CEO and founder of Confederate Motors, in a statement for the press. "Considering the level of discerning motorsport enthusiasts gathered from around the world in one place at one time, we could not think of a better forum at which to unveil our cutting-edge Fighter Combat."
The 1966cc massive engine of the Fighter Combat Edition is incorporated into a lightweight aluminium frame and develops 145 ft/lbs of torque and 160 rear wheel horsepower.
As we said, this one-off pre-production model has also been auctioned this weekend, but details of the bidding have not yet been made public.
The bike will be raced for setting a world speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats between August 30 and September 6 in the 2009 BUB Speed Trials. With an estimated retail cost of the production model of $75,000, this one-off Fighter Combat is expected to fetch much more.
