If there’s any high-end shop to anticipate a jaw dropping pro-touring reveal from, it’s Ringbrothers. Year after year, the Wisconsin-based aftermarket company seems to steal the SEMA Show, while taking just about every design award they’re eligible to compete for. This year is no different, with the official reveal of “VALKYRJA”, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro that was revealed this morning at the BASF booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The body panels of this ’69 Camaro are entirely carbon fiber, and were made using 3D molds, and according to Ringbrothers co-owner Mike Ring, “the most extensive car” they’ve ever done. Visually, it’s incredibly striking, with subtle tweaks everywhere that both seem to modernize the original design, as well as amplify its vintage muscle car looks. It’s an absolute stunner, and it’s looking to take home a Chevrolet SEMA Design Award, too.
The Ringbrothers VALKYRJA Camaro is five inches wider in the rear from stock, three inches wider in the front, a longer wheelbase by 1.5 inches, and under the hood is a supercharged LS3-based V8 from Wegner Motorsports. This is achieved via a higher displacement of 416 cubic-inches (6.8L) and a 2.9L Whipple Supercharger. Peak output is 890 horsepower. A Tremec six-speed manual gearbox overhauled by Bowler sends the power to a nine-inch John Industries rear end, while the soundtrack is piped through a Flowmaster stainless steel Super 44 exhaust. The lowered stance comes from a Detroit Speed Engineering suspension, while a set of Baer brakes provide the stopping power behind a set of HRE Wheels. Then there’s the pair of fuel filler doors – one labeled “Pump”, and the other labeled “Race.” How awesome is that?
The Ringbrothers VALKYRJA Camaro was revealed at the BASF booth because it’s colored in a Glasurit 90 Line olive hue called TOTOPKG Green. The carbon fiber muscle car will be on display there for the duration of the show, where afterwards it will be sent to Belgium for delivery to a special client.
