This year’s SEMA show included the usual in your face modifications, but the Ringbrothers’ creation – one of three on display there – remained beautifully underrated.
That’s because the classic muscle car has very few modifications on the outside – probably why the G-Code is hitting the sweet spot for Jay Leno’s Garage. And by the way, the tuners did incorporate a host of upgrades, such as those 1,000 horsepower under the hood. The G-Code’s client decided the ’69 Camaro should retain its looks – with certain slight modifications, such as hidden headlights like the RS model, or grille and bumper feature machined parts, while the back gets a billet bumper and custom LED taillights.
Ringbrothers decided for a 416-cubic-inch (6.8-liter) supercharged Chevy LS3 V8 to breathe under the carbon fiber hood, which should be good for approximately 1,000 horsepower (746 kilowatts) and 800 pound-feet (1,085 Newton-meters) of torque. The “beast” does weight heavy, with Leno’s scale showing 3,953 pounds. By the way – Leno’s video shows the first time the owner got to drive his custom Camaro. By the way, the other creations from Ringbrothers were a reworked Ford Mustang convertible and Cadillac ATS-V with a body you would expect to see on a ’48 Cadillac.
