Ringbrothers introduces a re-engineered 1969 Dodge Charger, named “Tusk”, boasting a 1,000-hp Hellephant engine, after dedicating 5,000 hours to its creation.
“Tusk” features a 1,000-horsepower Hellephant engine, modern chassis, and enhanced suspension.
The car’s design includes a two-piece carbon fiber hood, custom chassis, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires on unique HRE wheels.
The interior is adorned with leather upholstery, carbon fiber elements, and a range of high-end features.
Ringbrothers recently unveiled “Tusk”, a masterpiece of automotive engineering based on the 1969 Dodge Charger. This creation is not merely a refurbished classic but a complete reimagining, highlighted by the incorporation of Mopar’s famed 1,000-horsepower Hellephant engine from 2018. The choice of the Hellephant over other high-power engines like the Hellcat speaks to the exceptional uniqueness of this build.
The journey to create “Tusk” was nothing short of intense, with Ringbrothers investing around 5,000 hours into its creation. Underneath its two-piece carbon fiber hood, “Tusk” houses a 7.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that sends its power to the rear wheels via a Bowler Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission.
This power is transferred through a custom carbon fiber driveshaft to a Ford nine-inch differential. A subtle but significant design modification sees the Hemi motor positioned 2.5 inches further back for enhanced weight distribution, optimizing handling.
The exterior showcases meticulous attention to detail. Features include a custom Fast Track chassis, Fox RS SV coilovers, Baer Brakes with six-piston calipers, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires mounted on bespoke HRE wheels. Aesthetic modifications like the exposed carbon fiber grille surround, custom front valance, and reshaped rear-quarter end caps enhance its appearance.
Inside, the cabin exudes luxury with leather upholstery, a carbon fiber center console, Dakota Digital gauges, and a state-of-the-art climate system. The car’s sleek “Black to the Future” paint job is elegantly contrasted with golden accents.
