Ringbrothers Go “Ballistic” for the 2016 SEMA Show
Custom car builders bring a classic Cadillac, Chevy, and Ford, plus a 900-hp Winnebago
Wisconsin wizards Jim and Mike Ring make awesome muscle cars and trucks for gear heads everywhere. The bros better known, as Ringbrothers are already teasing us with sketches and designs for another impressive SEMA Show.
This time around, they are bringing several of their wildest builds to the annual tuner trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Expect deep lines to form around their latest takes on Chevrolet, Cadillac, and a Ford, plus a sick sleeper: a 900 horsepower Winnebago.
"SEMA is such a big deal for us every year," said Jim Ring in a release. "We love having the chance to show the world all the hard work we put into these projects all year long."
"We're excited to debut these three new cars at the show," Mike Ring added, "and we know everyone at the show will get a real kick out of the Winnebago. It's going to be a great week."
"The World's Fastest Winnebago," a 1972 "Happy Camper" Winnebago Brave will make its first SEMA show appearance and is sure to impress radical, road trippers of any generation. The 900+ horsepower RV has a "WWII Bomber-inspired, party-ready interior" that features a built-in Tiki lounge. Now who wouldn't want to jam in a ride like that?
Also ogle-worthy from the American car builders is a classic build made out of a 1948 Cadillac Series V fastback. The "Vivi White" machine is dubbed "Madam V" and aside from its original steel body -- a 2016 ATS-V's 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine was used to create a fat, old school super Caddy that melds the best of the past and present worlds.
Bow Tie fanatics will lust for "G-Code," a second-generation 1969 Camaro with a powerful Wegner Whipple-supercharged LS3 that nests under the lean, slammed hood.
Also not to be missed is a 1965 Mustang convertible named "Ballistic" which is powered by a supercharged 5.8-liter V-8. It was yanked out of a newer Ford GT500 and promises not disappoint the Ford faithful. The wide-body, classic ride sports a liquid blue paint job and a blacked-out interior that's made for cool cruising.
Ringbrothers snagged a GM "Best in Show" design award at the 2014 SEMA Show and they are on track for more kudos this time around. SEMA is closed to the public and runs from November 1 - 4.
