Ringbrothers has returned with another stunner of a muscle car, this time based on the 1969 Dodge Charger. Everything in the build is custom, including the proportions which were altered to fit a longer wheelbase and mounting of the engine, in this case a 1,000-hp Hellephant, closer to the firewall.
Prototypes for what’s thought to be the next Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 took to the Nürburgring recently, and now we possibly have confirmation of the engine destined for the car. An alleged parts catalog for General Motors shows a description for an LT7 V-8 displacing 5.5 liters and featuring a turbocharging system.
Stellantis has entered a deal with a Chinese automaker by the name of Leapmotor that will see the two form a joint venture to handle the export and sale of Leapmotor vehicles outside of China. Exports are scheduled to begin in the second half of 2024 and the first destination has been confirmed as Europe.
