Most of you may recall the Ringbrothers‘ previous masterpiece, the Chevelle Recoil, and how could you forget it? So when we caught wind of the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro “Razor” we immediately thought, how the heck are they going to follow up that incredible Chevelle? Then we saw it.
Everything about this car works. What we mean by this is that the car is just so aesthetically appealing to look at. The lines flow cleanly, your eyes scan the images with no obstructions. You don’t pause and think “wait, what’s that?”, or “eh, I wouldn’t have done that.” While the color scheme may be debatable to some, the paint job itself looks like a ten out of ten and was done by Simeon Caraway of the Ringbrothers. The interior is just as appealing as the exterior, with Hunter-colored leather and the slightest chrome accenting. If any of it looks familiar, well that’s because you’re seeing a Momo steering wheel and Audi TT bucket seats. The Razor even has an Alpine stereo with navigation and Blue Tooth since Erv intends to actually drive it.
Of course, photo editing could have us in love with the Razor the way you sometimes fall in love with a persons image on any given social media only to find out that they’re not even half as attractive as you thought they were when you see them in person. But it’s the small detail put into the Ringbrothers’ work that makes their cars so captivating. Check out the list of highlighted exterior modifications below:
- Custom carbon-fiber hood and decklid
- Exhaust tips molded to match taillights
- Front and rear wheelwells opened up 11.4-inches at the bottoms
- B-pillar lowered 1 inch
- Handbuilt rocker moldings,
- Cutline on the rocker panel altered 30 degrees to flow better with doors
- Fenders and cowl extended upward to the windshield to eliminate stainless moldings
- Complete new front end fabbed out of steel to eliminate the bumper
- Handmade three-piece aluminum front chin spoiler
- Carbon-fiber rear brake ducts replaced original gills
- Reshaped and recessed carbon-fiber rear bumper
- One-off 18x9s/ 9x12s inch wheels created by Budnik Wheels
The Ringbrothers Camaro Razor wasn’t built to just look good, if the engine is any indicator. It’s powered by a GM 454 crate engine stuffed with 10.2:1 pistons, forged rods, a forged crankshaft, and a solid roller cam which gives it a gnarly sounding exhaust. This powerhouse is matted to a Tremec Viper-spec six-speed transmission, along with a custom-built Currie 9-inch rear with 4.56 gears and an Eaton Truetrac differential.
Braking power is supplied by Baer six-piston calipers paired with 13-inch rotors all the way around. The frame itself is mostly stock, with the hydroformed subframe coming from Detroit Speed and Engineering. The subframe comes equipped with tubular upper and lower control arms, Detroit-tuned coilovers, a power-rack-and pinion, a splined sway bar, and C6 Corvette steering knuckles.
Simply put, this Camaro is capable of going fast, and not only in a straight line. And if you’re someone who cares about form over function, the Razor’s sexiness will certainly be noticed.
