When Ringbrothers show up to SEMA, everyone knows something special is about to be unveiled. That was certainly the case a bit ago when Ringbrothers pulled the cover off the awesome Ringbrothers 1969 Mustang Mach 1 UNKL. To say the car is a one-of-a-kind would be a vast understatement. The car was designed with a widened body and unique race-inspired theme that makes the most of road and race tech in one car.
The Ringbrothers 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 UNKL has a massive engine under the hood with a 520 cubic-inch V8 built by Jon Kaase Boss, and it makes 700 horsepower. All that power goes to the rear wheels by a massaged Bowler 6-speed Tremec transmission and QA1 carbon-fiber driveshaft. UNKL exhales through a custom stainless-steel Flowmaster exhaust.
The blue paint on the body of UNKL is a BASF color called Big Boss Blue. The body of the car was widened by an inch on each side to give it a more aggressive stance without giving up the looks of the classic Mustang. Ringbrothers used a mix of carbon fiber and steel panels that were tweaked by the shop. UNKL also has billet taillights, reshaped bumpers, and trim along with engine-bay accessories custom machined at Ringbrothers.
The “UNKL” name for the build comes from Ringbrothers’ owner, who had a close relationship with his uncle. The build is meant to pay tribute to the influence his uncle had on his passion for cars. The car has Detroit Speed Engineering’s Aluma-Frame front suspension with cast aluminum cradle, custom-tuned steering racks, tubular suspension arms, and custom adjustable RideTech coilovers.
The rear has Detroit speed QUADRALink suspension and RideTech shocks. Each corner has Baer 6S Extreme calipers to bring the Mustang to a stop. The wheels are bespoke forged HRE units with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires measuring 295/35R-19 front and 345/30R-20 rear. Inside UNKL is fitted with Recaro seats, plenty of billet, and some very cool custom gauges along with a Vintage Air AC system. Ford unveiled another cool car called Mustang Lithium not long ago.
