Ringbrothers 1970 Ford Mustang “Dragon”
This amazing Mustang was built for the SEMA 2010 by the one of the best tuners in the world, the Ringbrothers. The Wisconsin-based company is well known for their unique designs and ability to combine modern materials with classic designs.
The Mustang with the menacing nickname “Dragon” under the hood has an 8-cylinder Roush 427 IR crate engine that delivers 500 hp. It also features 8-stack fuel injection, a five-speed Tremec TKO transmission JME front suspension, Detroit Speed Quadralink rear suspension, Baer brakes, and a Flowmaster Super 44 muffler exhaust. The car is painted in BASF Dragon Blood Red colour and rides on forged 18×10 front, 18×12 rear wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Tires.
The interior has been made by Custom Upholstery Unlimited and features Recaro seats, custom instruments and custom upholstery. It also has some modern features such Alpine audio system, air conditioning and navigation system.
But, according to Jim and Mike Ring the best part about the car are the little details, like the four-point racing seat belts. “The angles and corners of the doors were re-cut. On a stock ’70 the body line of the door on the rear comes almost straight down, and on this car we actually pulled the door back and added an inch and a half to the door gap at the bottom.” Basically, nothing on the car remains untouched by the Ringbrothers. The logos and emblems are fabricated from either aluminum or carbon-fiber, while both the entire front and rear end of the car are built from carbon fiber.
