Ring brothers Unveils V-8-Powered SEMA Builds, Including Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce : The renowned Wisconsin-based custom car builder, Ring brothers, unveiled a unique creation at the 2023 SEMA show – a 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II named “Paramount.” Unlike some of their other projects, Paramount retains its traditional appearance, with the original bodywork meticulously refurbished and painted in an immaculate white shade. Under the hood, however, it boasts an American heart – a General Motors-sourced supercharged LT4 V-8 engine that produces a whopping 640 horsepower and 635 pound-feet of torque, connected to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The car’s performance is impressive, even drag-racing a new Phantom and emerging victorious. The Rolls-Royce rests on a custom chassis, fitted with coil-overs and 18-inch wheels. Inside, the wooden dashboard maintains the classic layout but features modern gauges and switchgear, as well as a “starlight” headliner with over 1000 LED lights. Ring brothers also removed the glass divider, providing more space inside while keeping the fold-down tables for rear passengers.

In addition to Paramount, Ring brothers presented two American builds at the SEMA show. “Uncaged” is a modified 1965 Ford Mustang convertible, with various body enhancements, a Ford Performance 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 engine generating 460 hp, and an independent rear suspension. The interior is adorned with lush leather and intricate details. The third creation, “Tusk,” is a 1969 Dodge Charger equipped with a 1000-hp Hellephant crate engine, carbon fiber elements, and custom front and rear bumpers. Gold accents and a lowered stance give it a bold and aggressive appearance. Inside, the cabin is adorned with carbon fiber and features modern enhancements.

Ring brothers’ creations are often commissioned by owners, granting the builders creative freedom. While their expertise lies in classic American muscle cars, the unique Rolls-Royce project has expanded their horizons, hinting at possible future ventures into different makes and models.
