Ringbrothers Turns a 1969 Dodge Charger Into a 700-HP Hellcat-Powered Restomod

Established in 2011 by Mike and Jim Ring, Ringbrothers is one of the most eminent custom car shops in operation today, lauded for helping to usher in the fully-bespoke, modern restomodded muscle car genre. Based in Spring Green, Wisconsin, Ringbros places a major premium on quality over quantity, only churning out a few custom builds per year. However, the time, dedication, and resources that go into each project allow the two brothers to deliver one-off builds that stand in a league of their own — a fact evidenced by their latest work, a 1969 Dodge Charger that’s been dubbed the “CAPTIV.”

Built for New Zealand-born ex-supercar racer — and Ringbros friend — Greg Murphy, the Dodge donor sports custom bodywork with a one-off front splitter and rear diffuser, plus a side-exiting Flowmaster exhaust setup. Poking through the Charger’s one-off hood is a supercharged 6.2L Hellcat V8 crate engine cranking out more than 700hp and 650ft-lbs of torque. Riding on a set of HRE Performance five-arm wheels shod in Michelin rubber, the CAPTIV has been cloaked in a custom BASF “Pile up Yellow” livery inspired by Porsche’s factory “Signal Yellow” paint. Inside, the project boasts a fully-bespoke interior with a custom flat-bottom carbon fiber steering wheel, all machined aluminum buttons and switches, heavily modified RECARO seats, and digital MoTeC instrumentation set in a custom-machined surround.

Based on the world-class quality of Ringbrothers’ work, we’re always extremely excited to see anything that rolls out of the Wisconsin workshop. And while this restomodded masterpiece is already spoken for, the company accepts private commissions — albeit it presumably has an extremely long, multi-year waiting list — and also produces custom (mainly billet) aftermarket parts for a variety of classic cars.
