Spring Green, Wisconsin-based tuning shop Ringbrothers always have something special to show at SEMA and this year is no different.
What you’re looking at is Ringbrothers’ specially commissioned build for an anonymous buyer in Belgium. Known as the Valkyrja, this 1969 Camaro may be the best Chevrolet in the Las Vegas Convention Center during SEMA this year.
Powering the Valkyrja is a 416 cubic-inch (or 6.8-liter) LS3 topped off with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. Built by Markesan, Wisconsin-based engine experts at Wegner Motorsports, this gorgeous custom LS3 is rated at a ridiculous 890 horsepower. That’s actually fairly reserved for Wegner, which has a 427 cubic-inch LSx engine available that makes more than 1,100 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque. However, that engine has a much larger 4.5-liter Whipple blower on it, however, which would take up a bit more room in the engine bay.
Power from the Wegner-built motor is sent through a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and nine-inch rear end supplied by John’s Industries. Other goodies include a Flowmaster Super 44 exhaust, Detroit Speed suspension, Baer disc brakes and HRE alloy wheels.
A number of 3D-printed and CNC-machined specialty parts designed by the fabrication experts at Ringbrothers adorn the exterior, while carbon fiber front and rear fascia inlays as well as a carbon fiber hood and decklid are a nod to the Camaro’s motorsport inspiration. The owner wants to keep some aspects of the build a secret, so no photos of the interior will be published.
The 1969 Camaro Valkyrja is also finished in a BASF Glasurit 90 Line paint called TOTOPKG Green. As such, it will be on display at BASF’s booth at SEMA 2019 this week. GM Authority is reporting live from the show, so stay tuned for live photos of what just may be one of the best builds at this year’s SEMA show.
