Treat your eyes to the Ringbrothers ’69 STRODE, a 1,000-HP, carbon-bodied restomod
Renowned tuning company Ringbrothers hit this year’s SEMA show with a completely restored and modernized 1969 Chevrolet Camaro sending over a thousand horsepower to its rear wheels.
Most of the new bodywork is carbon fiber, and the car is 125 mm (5 inches) wider than stock. Low-slung side skirts, stretched hood and roof crease lend a healthy dose of sporty aggression to what is already a beautiful retro coupe.
For the engine, the tuner opts for a Chevy LS3 V8 modified by Wegner Motorsports. A Whipple supercharger along with a slew of other high-end components drive the output up to 1,024 PS (1,010 hp / 753 kW). A six-speed manual transmission carries the torque to the rear wheels, and powerful Baer brakes ensure that the power stays in check.
A peek inside the ’69 STRODE reveals Dakota Digital gauges stylized to look like classic analog instruments. The same applies to the HVAC system on board. Upholstery Unlimited was responsible for trimming the two seats inside, and the rear row went away to make room for a hand-made safety cage.
Ringbrothers said it had invested over 6,500 hours of intense work into the project. The involved costs were not discussed.
