For those who already own a Winnebago, enjoyment while being on the road comes fairly easy. Even then, some people also want a vehicle where they can get a thrill every time the accelerator is pressed. At the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show (2016 SEMA Show) held in Las Vegas, Ringbrothers revealed that such a vehicle is possible with its version of the 1972 Winnebago Bravo. In simple terms, this well-known car tuner and builder has managed to transform a Winnebago to a speed beast.
Powering this Ringbrothers variant of the Winnebago is the supercharged LS408 V8 engine with excellent output of 900 hp. This power is then channelled to the wheels through the 4L80 transmission from General Motors. However when looked at its exterior, one would hardly think that it contains this amount of power.
Some personalization and improvements have been implemented on the interior and this is helped with the mint green paint theme. Inside, the use of glass as a cover for the engine allows the supercharger to be seen. There is also the wooden floor, flat screen TV, and neon lights. A boat engine can even be seen on one of its walls.
This enhanced Winnebago though is but one of the four models that Ringbrothers is putting up on display. Another model is the tuner’s own version of the Cadillac Series V fastback. Dubbed as “Madam V”, the tuning company considers this as its most daring creation as they had to make use of two 2016 Cadillac ATS-Vs, both brand new by the way, in order to have a unique vehicle that mixes the modern with the vintage.
The third is a 1965 Mustang whose wide body has been equipped with the 5.8-liter supercharged V8 engine, the same one inside the GT500. Finally, there is the G-Code Camaro which, while indeed having an attractive look, is the fastest 1969 model that the company has made. Although official figures have yet to be released, it has been revealed that this model will be powered by a LS3 supercharged Wegner Whipple engine.
Ringbrothers is owned by brothers Jim and Mike Ring who hail from Spring Green, Wisconsin. The siblings started working on customized cars back in 1994 and because of the quality of their creations, started to get recognized for their efforts. While there are indeed quite a number of companies that have the skill to customize cars, only a few of them manage to get it correctly and one such company is Ringbrothers.
In tuning cars, the company follows a rather simple principle which is to modify a car into what the brothers believe it should have been. To make this possible, the brothers made sure to put a lot of focus on the details as well as look into the little things that would allow the model to stand out.
