This 1,000 HP 1972 AMC Javelin AMX Is Powered By A Modified Hellcat V8

Muscle Car

With a Whipple Supercharger added for some extra fun.

You’ve more than likely heard of these guys, the Ringbrothers. The Wisconsin-based duo, long known for their stunning restomod creations, have debuted their latest at SEMA in Las Vegas, the 1,000-hp Prestone 1972 AMC Javelin AMX, which has been dubbed “Defiant!” Conceived only a year ago, Prestone, the company that makes various car products, figured something like this just had to be done and, fortunately, the Ringbrothers themselves had been eyeing an old Javelin right in their hometown.

In fact, they’ve known about its existence for over 40 years. Once they got their hands on it, the duo extended its wheelbase by moving the wheels forward by six and a half inches. Its wheel arches were also moved forward and recreated with carbon fiber. A new carbon fiber hood was also added, along with front fenders, grille and front valance. The taillights, bumpers, trim and engine bay accessories are also all custom, machined out of aluminum blocks. And then there’s its engine, the 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8. Although it already comes stock with 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, the brothers added a Whipple 4.5-liter Supercharger that contributes to a combined total of 1,036 hp.

Power is directed to the rear wheels via a Bowler automatic transmission. A carbon fiber driveshaft was also utilized. To give it the appropriate bark, there’s a custom stainless steel exhaust, while the interior has been decked out with a Kicker sound system, retro gauges, and custom seats. At each of the four corners are 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin tires. And because of that ridiculous amount of power, a set of six-piston Baer brakes were installed. The exterior paint is called “Jalop Gold.” Nice. No details on whether this thing is for sale or not, but the Ringbrothers always do personalized projects for customers who are more than happy to fork over serious cash for their dream muscle machines.
