Ringbrothers, the infamous custom car builder and parts manufacturer, has just unveiled its latest creation - a custom 1969 Dodge Charger known as "CAPTIV." The Charger makes an impressive 528kW from its Mopar Hellcat crate engine mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission.

The build was completed for New Zealand-based motorsports personality and TV show host Greg Murphy. Disassembly and prep of the vehicle began in New Zealand before the build made its way to Ringbrothers to bring Murphy’s vision to life. The Ringbrothers team completed the extensive metalwork, including making the Charger unibody and integrating a Flowmaster exhaust system.

A custom BASF Pile Up Yellow paint job was then applied and the Hellcat crate engine was installed and filled with bespoke Motul engine oil for protection and performance. Other highlights of the build include custom HRE wheels, a carbon fibre driveshaft and adjustable shocks, Baer six-piston brakes, and a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres. The build was also fitted with a top-of-the-line MoTeC engine management system and gauges.

What's all this cost? Ringbrothers won't say, but check the car out in our video and let us know if you'd like a custom Dodge Charger or if you'd prefer something else from this class in your dream garage?
