Continuing a streak of incredible Ringbrothers creations.
It's not all about the power though.
It's much more than just a big engine in a classic body.
The Ring brothers stop by Jay Leno's Garage with their 1965 Ford Mustang Espionage. There's more than meets the eye with this custom, including a big secret under the hood.
Ringbrothers is showing off its 980-horsepower, customized 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle called Recoil to Hagerty, and the two brothers behind the company talk about what got them interested in cars.
Jay Leno slips behind the wheel of Ringbrothers' 1966 Chevy Chevelle Revoil with its 980-horsepower, supercharged V8, and this beast sounds just as amazing as it looks.
We caught up with a few projects from Ringbrothers at SEMA this year: a classic Ford Mustang body rendered in carbon fiber, and a De Tomaso Pantera-based concept that made us swoon.
We covered one of Ringbrothers' more extreme SEMA builds yesterday, the De Tomaso Pantera-based ADRNLN, but if that well-executed but over-the-top Italian-American exotic is too much for you, then perhaps this Ring Brothers 1965 Ford Mustang fastback with a carbon-fiber body suits your tastes better.
In the annals of automobile history, there have been many successful vehicles from small European automakers powered by good old-fashioned American V8 engines. Perhaps the most well-known of these Anglo-American mashups is the Shelby Cobra, but another model that figures prominently into the discussion would be the De Tomaso Pantera.
ADRNLN, the car pictured in the rendering above, is based on a 1971 De Tomaso Pantera that had seen better days. But in its transformation to its soon-to-be-revealed second act, Ringbrothers, a custom car shop and parts maker, and Nike's innovation skunkworks team have given the De Tomaso a new lease on life. It's going to be a vibrant life, too, courtesy of a 600-horsepower Chevy LS3 V8 swap - Ford V8s powered stock Pantera models - but we're not going to complain about the car's Bowtie engine
The only thing better than booth babes at the SEMA show in Las Vegas are the cars on which they're leaning. The OEMs along with the aftermarket crowd all populate their displays with the sickest rides imaginable, and we're just starting to get an idea what's in store for us this year. This morning, ROUSH informed us that its booth would be occupied by this car, a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback called "Reactor".
