Last year at the 2014 SEMA Show, Ringbrothers impressed us with its custom Chevelle. This year, it has blown our minds.
Starting with a 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback, the seasoned veterans gave it a treatment like no other with an all carbon fiber body. The builders have nicknamed the project “Espionage” and we would be bold enough to say that it would be a privilege for James Bond to get behind the wheel. That’s because the Rings didn’t want to just make a “carbon copy” of a 1965 Fastback, they wanted to take the iconic shape and widen it two inches on each side along with countless other details that make it uniquely Ringbrothers.
Covering the exquisite carbon fiber body work is a custom BASF Glasurit 90-Line Waterborne paint shade that has been aptly named “Spy Green.”

As beautiful as the custom Mustang Fastback is, it’s what lies underneath the hood that really has our attention. The folks at Wegner Motorsports contributed to the project with a 427-cubic inch LS7 engine outfitted with a massive Whipple supercharger to help churn out 959 horsepower and 858 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant is mated to a six-speed Tremec T56 transmission, while all the ponies are sent to the rear wheels through a custom driveshaft into a Ford nine-inch rear end. The header and exhaust system was custom built by Ringbrothers that exit out to Flowmaster Super 44 Mufflers.
Now, no project would be complete if it simply looked stunning and packed a ton of power. Braking performance has been enhanced with Baer 14-inch brake discs and 6S calipers all around. Custom forged wheels from HRE were then bolted on, wrapped with Nitto Invo rubber sized 295/35/18 in the front and 345/30/19 in the rear.
