Ringbrothers never seems to miss. The Spring Green, Wisconsin-based custom car shop always puts out the coolest, wildest American muscle car restomods. This latest one is no different. It's a 1969 Dodge Charger that's been treated to an extensive overhaul, and now features Hellcat power and plenty of other upgrades.

Nicknamed "CAPTIV," this '69 Charger was built for Greg Murphy, a motorsports icon and TV personality based in New Zealand. While it looks a lot like a normal Charger from the outside, it's been given a massive swath of upgrades to make it worthy of the Ringbrothers name. The body-on-frame layout underneath has been banished in favor of a new unibody design, while the original engine has been removed for a 707-horsepower Hellcat crate engine from Dodge with a supercharger that sticks out of the hood. Getting power to the rear wheels is a Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission and a carbon-fiber driveshaft.

Other upgrades include Baer six-piston brakes, adjustable shocks, and custom HRE wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. That paint is a custom shade called Pile Up yellow, in case you're curious. Inside you'll find a totally revamped cabin with new seats and a new dash. There's also a custom Ringbrothers steering wheel, MoTeC gauges, and a MoTeC ECU to control all of the electronics.

As with every other Ringbrothers build, we're sure it's as amazing to drive as it looks. We're not jealous of Murphy. Not one bit.
