Jim and Mike Ring, of Ringbrothers in Spring Green, Wisconsin have adored the AMC Javelin since they were kids. Seeing as how Ringbrothers builds some of the most insane cars on the planet, they chose their childhood fantasy car as their next big project. Their 1972 AMC Javelin AMX debuted at SEMA and it was nothing short of a show stopper.
Powering this iconic muscle car is none other than the 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2 litre you would find in any of Mopar’s Hellcat cars. Although this engine has enough power to scare the crap out of most anyone, Ringbrothers didn’t think it was enough. They swapped out the factory supercharger for a 4.5-liter Whipple unit and now this little Javelin makes a cool 1,100 horsepower.
This build was commissioned by Prestone to celebrate its 90th anniversary, so the car was painted yellow which Ringsbrothers calls “Jalop Gold.” Lurking under this gorgeous paint job are panels made of carbon fiber. They chose the super strong material to make the hood, front fenders, grill and the front valance. Other major modifications include a custom 4-link setup, modern brakes, a 12-bolt rear end and side exhaust.
This build took 12 months to complete, and Ringbrothers used 3D scanning and printing for the first time. This advanced technology aided in the development of the custom molds used in all the unique body modifications.
Ringbrothers also showed off a Ford F-100 restomod with a 5.0 Coyote engine, and a 1969 Dodge Charger named the Defector, that uses a 6.4 liter Hemi V-8. For more on SEMA, check out their link here.
