Ringbrothers, the renowned custom car builder and parts manufacturer, has once again pushed the boundaries of automotive craftsmanship with the debut of their latest creation – “TUSK.” This meticulously remastered 1969 Dodge Charger is a testament to Ringbrothers’ dedication to excellence, blending iconic design with cutting-edge technology.
At the heart of TUSK lies Mopar’s formidable 1,000-horsepower HELLEPHANT crate engine, generating a staggering 950 ft-lbs of torque. This supercharged 7.0-liter (426 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 powerhouse is paired with a Bowler TREMEC T-56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission, ensuring an unparalleled driving experience.
TUSK is a feat of engineering, featuring extensive carbon-fiber components seamlessly integrated into its structure. From the custom two-piece carbon-fiber hood to the billet machined hood scoop grilles, every detail exudes precision and artistry. The all-aluminum HEMI® engine is strategically positioned 2.5 inches further back, optimizing weight distribution for enhanced performance.
The Charger’s classic “coke-bottle” body is the canvas for Ringbrothers’ creative genius. The front end boasts an exposed carbon-fiber surround and a single piece of billet machined chrome trim, accentuating the distinctive “blind-eye” grille. Custom-designed front valance and chin spoiler, along with tucked and narrowed bumpers, further amplify the Charger’s commanding presence.
BASF Glasurit’s “Black to the Future” paint scheme enhances the Charger’s muscular proportions, while gold accents add an extra touch of menace. The wheelbase has been extended by moving the front wheels forward by two inches, delivering improved handling dynamics.
A custom Roadster Shop FAST TRACK chassis forms the foundation for TUSK’s exceptional performance. Fox RS SV coil-overs at all four corners, coupled with Baer Brakes Extreme 6S six-piston calipers, guarantee responsive handling and ample stopping power. The HRE Wheels, bearing the “TUSK” insignia, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, providing a perfect blend of style and functionality.
Inside, TUSK offers modern comfort and convenience. A custom leather interior with a carbon-fiber console complements the Charger’s high-performance persona. The Mopar-inspired custom carbon-fiber “pistol grip” shifter adds a touch of nostalgia, while the Gentex rearview mirror, Dakota Digital gauges, and Vintage Air Gen IV climate-control system ensure a state-of-the-art driving experience.
TUSK results from over 5,000 hours of meticulous craftsmanship, a testament to Ringbrothers’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive artistry. Limited to just 100 units, this masterpiece stands as a rare and coveted creation, combining the best of classic design with the latest automotive technology.
Ringbrothers’ TUSK is a bold reimagining of the iconic 1969 Dodge Charger, marrying the spirit of a classic with the innovation of modern engineering. With the HELLEPHANT’s thunderous power, carbon-fiber elegance, and precision engineering, TUSK is a testament to Ringbrothers’ legacy of automotive excellence. This limited-edition masterpiece is set to leave an indelible mark in the annals of automotive history.
