Ring Brothers 1964 Ford Fairlane Afterburner

The 1964 Ford Fairlane you see above is anything but stock. It originally debuted at the 2009 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and it's one of the vehicles that helped cement Ring Brothers as a force in the custom car world. Underhood is a fuel-injected, 427-cubic-inch V8 engine from Roush that puts out a stout 560 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque, so this beast is just as much go and it is show.

That said, the show part of the equation may be its most impressive attribute. Much of the body is crafted from carbon fiber, including the hood, fenders and bumpers. Billet aluminum makes up a large chunk of the rest.

Called "Afterburner," this custom Fairlane just sold at the 2014 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale for $225,000 plus a 10-percent fee. Check it out in our high-res image gallery above and the official auction description below.
