Ringbrothers tends not to do things by halves. In case you missed it, the outfit brought a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro called the ‘Valkyrja’ to this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas. But that’s not the only one—it also showcased a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 nicknamed ‘UNKL,’ as it pays tribute to the Ringbrothers owner’s uncle.
The car is powered by a Jon Kaase Boss engine displacing 8.5 liters and making 700hp, sent via a carbon driveshaft to 20-inch HRE wheels shod with vast 345-section Michelin tires. A custom stainless-steel exhaust makes all the lovely burbly noises, while adjustable coilover suspension and massive brakes mean it ought to handle and stop as well as it goes.
Ringbrothers has also extended the Mustang’s body—which is made from a mix of carbon and steel—by an inch on either side, giving it a bit more stance while retaining a somewhat original look. The paintwork is ‘Big Boss Blue,’ while the livery is said to serve a purpose—Ringbrothers says this car will actually be used in anger on track.
So, which Ringbrothers creation do you prefer—this, or the Camaro?
