Ringbrothers unveiled its latest build, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro known as “VALKYRJA,” at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The 890-horsepower muscle car is powered by a 416-cubic inch Wegner Motorsports LS3 topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger.

“We try and top ourselves every year, and this build was no different,” said Mike Ring, co-owner of Ringbrothers.

Ringbrothers extended the Mach 1’s body by an inch on each side, which gives it a slightly more aggressive stance than stock without compromising the classic look.

Hellwig Products showed off the “Attainable Adventure” Ranger, an overland exploration vehicle equipped with two Specialized electric mountain bikes and a Trail Kitchens bed-mounted kitchen.

The SEMA Show just opened for a four-day run at the Las Vegas Convention Center and muscle cars are spilling out of the place. SEMA officially announced that the Ford Mustang was the most popular car in the show — that is, it’s the car chosen by more customizers and aftermarket parts manufacturers than any other at the show. So here’s a Ringbrothers Mustang, along with a Ringbrothers Camaro, SpeedKore Charger and even a Hellwig Ford Ranger truck.
As they said in Butch and Sundance, “That oughta do it.”
MagnaFlow/SpeedKore Dodge Charger
MagnaFlow is the title sponsor of what it’s calling “the world’s first all-wheel-drive, twin-turbocharged, carbon-fiber wide-body Dodge Charger” ever made. SpeedKore has made a few carbon-fiber-bodied Chargers in the past, including the one famously piloted right off the edge of Mulholland Drive by a friend of comedian Kevin Hart just a few weeks ago. This is not that one. This one sports a carbon-fiber wide-body kit scanned off a 2019 Dodge Charger Pursuit sent by Dodge. SpeedKore used the scan to make molds to make the body parts then added a pre-preg carbon-fiber front bumper, fender flare set, factory rocker set, hood, rear spoiler, rear bumper and rear diffuser.
Under the carbon-fiber hood is the same 1,525-hp 6.2-liter twin-turbo V8 as the SpeedKore Demon, this one tuned by HP Tuners using “a conservative” 26 pounds of boost. The exhaust routes either out the back through a MagnaFlow Competition Series exhaust for street driving or directly out the front corner bumper if you’re racing.

Ringbrothers Mustang Mach 1

Ringbrothers 1969 Mustang Mach 1 UNKL
The Ring Brothers (whose company is called Ringbrothers) have made a few potent pony cars before. This year at SEMA, they brought a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 powered by a 520-cid Jon Kaase Boss engine making 700 hp. The car’s body is a mix of steel and carbon-fiber panels expanded an inch on each side and reshaped by Ringbrothers, an art they have perfected over the years to give their creations unique shapes. The UNKL name is used because the car’s owner was inspired by an uncle.

Ringbrothers 1969 Camaro

Ringbrothers 1969 Camaro Valkyrja
The Ring Brothers put a 416-cubic-inch LS3 into this 1969 Camaro then topped it off with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger for a peak output of 890 hp. This is no low-tech parts-bin slummer, either. The Brothers say the car was developed using 3D scanning, computer-assisted design “and more.” The name Valkyrja refers to the Norse gods who carried the dead of battle to Valhalla and the afterlife. The spelling is from the old Norse spelling. The name was chosen by the car’s Belgian owner as I guess maybe there are no Belgian gods.

Hellwig Suspension Products’ Attainable Adventure Ranger

Hellwig Suspension Products’ Attainable Adventure Ranger
While you could easily spend a half-million bucks on a fancy overlanding rig, the Attainable Adventure Ranger is supposed to be a more affordable way to get out and go exploring. While there is no price attached to this SEMA Show vehicle, it’s gotta be less than a half-million bucks, right?
The rig has a whole bunch of aftermarket camping and adventuring pieces on it, from the two Specialized electric mountain bikes mounted on a RIGd hitch swing to the Trails Kitchen bed-mounted kitchen in the back. The bed rack and awning are by Yakima, while the rooftop tent is a Tepui Hybox. If you’re constantly searching for irony, consider that the Hellwig Suspension Products Ranger doesn’t have a Hellwig suspension, but rather a Stage 5 Suspension System by Icon Vehicle Dynamics.
More SEMA builds coming as the weeklong show progresses.
