Has Ringbrothers outdone itself? Quite possibly. The 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle “Recoil” was going to be a tough act to follow, but the show must go on.
The aftermarket tuning and automotive magic workers that is Ringbrothers has revealed the 1965 Ford Mustang “Espionage” concept at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. And boy, is it stunning.
But what is a 1965 Ford Mustang doing on GM Authority? Have no fear, because tried-and-true 7.0-liter LS7 V8 power sits under the hood of this sneaky concept. Not only is it an LS engine, but it’s paired to a massive Whipple supercharger system, for the end results tallying 959 hp and 858 lb-ft of torque. All of that power is sent through a six-speed T56 Tremec manual transmission, and exits to the rear wheels through a custom driveshaft and into a Ford nine-inch year end.
“’Espionage’ has been a huge undertaking for our little shop. Over the past few years it has been an incredible challenge but one that’s also been incredibly rewarding,” said Jim Ring. “When Mike and I build a car, we always try and come up with something that nobody’s ever seen before and I think that the work we’ve done on “Espionage” really qualifies that statement.”
The exterior is jazzed up with a custom wide-body kit to accentuate the glorious fastback look that is the 1965 Mustang, and a striking custom BASF Glasurit 90-Line Waterborne paint color, aptly named “Spy Green.”
Ringbrothers may say this is a build suited for James Bond himself, but we think this vehicle is downright villainous.
