1,036 HP AMC Javelin AMX Brings Hellcat Power To SEMA | Carscoops

Well, to begin with, the car has been restored to mere perfection and everything you see on it looks utterly gorgeous. Moreover, this car was built to celebrate an anniversary! Namely, Preston wanted to a very special vehicle that will mark an unbelievable milestone i.e. their 90s anniversary. Hereby, Jim and Mike Ring got everything they needed to build this amazing 1972 Javelin AMX.
It is an absolute piece of 70s culture. But the process was not easy and it required manufacturing of many custom-made parts, such as the door handles and bumpers. So, what is actually under the hood? Well, this monster has the mighty 6.2L Hellcat engine along with a 3.2 Whipple that is able to produce whooping 1,080 HP.

Driving the 1036-HP 1972 AMC Javelin AMX Named Defiant

Besides its amazing look, this car is extremely fast too. What do you think, is the Javelin AMX Ringbrothers the best ever made?
How Did The Ringbrothers Defiant! Get Its Start?

“Jim and I have always wanted to build an AMX,” said Mike Ring, co-founder of Ringbrothers. “We’ve seen this particular car driving around our hometown of Plain, Wisconsin since we were kids and we always loved it. The AMX was such a neat car, unlike anything else at that time.”

And build an AMX they did.

The original powerplant for this Javelin, which could be any number of V8s depending on which model they used as a base, is long gone. In its place sits a rowdy 6.2L Hellcat engine good for 707 hp. Ringbrothers upped the ante by replacing the Hellcat’s go-fast bit with a gargantuan 4.5L Whipple supercharger, raising the power output to a whopping 1,036 ponies.

Defiant: The story behind the 1972 AMC Javelin AMX

Ringbrothers always shows incredible craftsmanship in its builds and has produced some of the most immaculate engine bays and setups we’ve ever laid eyes on. Everything is so neatly tucked in, detailed and color-matched; they may say their car builders, but what they really do is create some seriously memorable works of automotive art.
Even cooler is that on top of building incredible cars, Ringbrothers also offers carbon fiber body panels for sale. The parts are inspired by their signature stylings so that the aftermarket can have a taste of what they’re laying down.
