Ringbrothers To Reveal 1,000-HP AMC Javelin Hellcat

SEMA 2017 / Comments

It will be joined by an extensively modified 1969 Dodge Charger and 1956 Ford F-100 pickup.

There's just a few days left until this year's annual SEMA show opens its doors at Las Vegas, and it promises to be a treat for aftermarket tuning fans. Ringbrothers is known for its crazy custom cars like the insane 1965 Ford Mustang Espionage with 950 hp, so you can always rely on the tuner to debut something outrageous. This year will be no exception, as the tuner will be bringing three custom cars to SEMA including a 1969 Dodge Charger, a 1972 AMC Javelin, and a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup with copious amounts of unnecessary power.

Each has been shown in a series of teaser shots. The standout will most likely be the extreme 1972 Prestone AMC Javelin AMX dubbed "Defiant!" which will be the company's first car to be completely covered in carbon fiber from the hood and front fenders, to the grille, and valance. Under the hood lies a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat engine. Combined with a Whipple 4.5-liter blower, the unit produces over 1,000-horsepower. Other modifications include a Flowmaster exhaust, HRE wheels, Baer brakes and a BASF Glasurit Waterborne paint job named "Jalop Gold." Ringbrothers will also be lifting the wraps off a one-of-a-kind 1969 Dodge Charger named "Defector."

The car's custom bodywork took over 4,700 hours to build. It's been shortened by two inches and features a chassis lengthened by three inches. Powering the custom Charger is a Wegner Motorsports 6.4-liter HEMI with a Flowmaster exhaust, Royal Purple fluids and custom HRE wheels. The car is finished in a BASF Glasurit Waterborne custom color called "Greener on the Other Side." Last but not least is a 1956 Ford F-100 named "Clem 101." The custom pickup truck is powered by 5.0-liter Coyote V8 paired with a Flowmaster exhaust, a custom-built box frame, widened fenders, and new HRE wheels wrapped in Nitto racing tires. The body is finished in a custom "Speedy P Green" paint job.

These three cars are so different from the cars we've brought to SEMA before," said Ringbrothers Co-Founder Jim Ring. "The Charger is the first Mopar we've ever custom built and is also not something we usually do. The customer wanted it to look restored, but the entire body was slightly modified. We are also excited about debuting a truck at the show for the first time – this truck was a personal project for us and we can't wait to pull the cover off it in our booth."
