Spectre Performance the makers of familiar brand names like the carbon fibered Camaro and 2JZ Ford Maverick, conceptualized the Double Dually by rechristening a 2004 version of the Chevy Silverado dually from scratch.

It is extremely important for any pick-up truck meant for kick starting cars at Bonneville, to have an efficient traction system. The traction system of the Double dually is superb thanks to the eight driven wheels on the pickup truck’s custom-made rear sub-frame. The Dually was originally conceived to be run on a supercharged GM 8.1 V8 engine, which has now been subsequently equipped with Cadillac big block 500 cubic inch Garret turbochargers. Built by expert car designers at the Cadillac factory, the motors shell out a max horsepower if 1,425 hp and 1.671 foot pounds of torque. Once the monstrous Caddy motor was installed, the car's front suspension, was modified with basic features like QA1 shocks, one-off upper and lower control arms and Firestone 26C airbags.

Each piece of the suspension has been with black powder to ensure rust-free functioning. The piping for the Air intake and charge cooler are custom made by using 3 and 4 inched ProFab Quikits that Spectre Performance specializes in. These Quikits are smart and flexible enough to be assembled according to any design specification and can either be welded by the designer himself or sent to the Spectre Performance factory for assembling. A Paxton NOVI 1200 Supercharger enables the gargantuan 8.1L V8 engine to breathe while sending air to the blower through a triple funnel shaping elevated-flow filters that are integrated into large intake tube that feeds the supercharger.

Finally, The car’s upholstery which consisted of an entirely plastic interior was given stylish looks thanks to the efforts of Rogelio Auto Upholstery based in Baldwin Park, California. The car seats have been draped in light leather tan with black piping and a black colored leather headliner and black carpets. The dash was painted black to compliment the color scheme of the seats and outside look of the vehicle, while the red tint and the customized Vintec steering wheel adds to the chic look. The car's audio system and sub-woofers has been designed by Memphis, while the sub woofers are positioned additionally in a double toned leather encased surrounding that look amazing from the back seats. An automatic personal computer with a 10-inch touchscreen maneuvering the Audio and video systems has been integrated into the dash that heightens the functional yet classy image of this show truck.

Even as people try double and triple takes in trying to figure out this car, there is no ambiguity in attesting the true essence of its build and efficiency. The car's mobility is pleasant and smooth, the design has laid ample enclosure over big wheels, and can actually burn all the eight rear tires to good use.
