The custom builder’s 1948 Chevrolet pickup “ENYO” wins SEMA’s Battle of the Builders 2022 Ultimate Builder Award and 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer “BULLY” was runner up at the annual automotive trade show in Las Vegas.
LAS VEGAS — Ringbrothers, the world-renowned custom car builder and parts manufacturer, was awarded several top awards at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas for two out of four of its most recent unveiled custom builds – a 1948 Chevrolet Loadmaster dubbed “ENYO” and a 1972 Chevrolet K5 Blazer codenamed “BULLY.” The Wisconsin-based team’s build “ENYO” took home top honors for a variety of custom builder categories including winning SEMA’s Battle of the Builders 2022 Ultimate Builder Award. Accolades from the 2022 SEMA Show also include “HRIA’s Design and Innovation Award” and “BASF’s Best Paint Award.”
“Year after year, the SEMA show gives us the opportunity to showcase what we are most passionate about,” said Mike Ring, co-owner of Ringbrothers. “This year, we had the opportunity to unveil four of our most extreme builds, both in design and execution. With the support from our partners and the enthusiast community, we continue to push the boundaries of custom car building which is what we originally set out to do.”
Bearing the name of the Greek goddess of war, the 1,010 horsepower 1948 Chevrolet pickup “ENYO” was nearly ten years in the making. Built through 10,000 laborious build hours, the “anti-street rod” is chopped, channeled and sectioned to redefine the American classic. ENYO has incredible details baked in, from the CAD-designed trim and parts that were all cut in-house at the Ringbrothers machining facility to the way they seamlessly managed to mate a big-box truck cab and massive drivetrain successfully on a low-slung, Indy Car-style chassis. Powered by a Goodwin 1,000-horsepower tall-deck racing engine and crafted using extensive carbon-fiber components, ENYO embodies the quality and custom work Ringbrothers is known for.
“BULLY,” on the other hand, expresses extensive restomod build features with a 6.8-liter LS3 V8 topped with a massive 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger and heavy-duty off-road suspension. The four-wheel-drive Blazer makes 1,200 horsepower. Other highlights of the labor-intensive and innovative build include a new chassis, four-link suspension, bespoke interior, heavy-duty drivetrain and many unique parts.
As leaders in their industry, Mike and Jim Ring were some of the first custom builders to utilize high-tech innovative design and technology in each creation. Among being one of the first shops to chop classic muscle cars to change the lines, make wide-body builds, use unusual industrial materials for interior designs, integrate CAD for the design process and 3D printing for parts, the brothers were also the first in making custom billet parts in-house. Much of what they’re known for is now standard use at multibillion-dollar OEMs building concept cars. But, for a tiny shop in Spring Green, Wisconsin to be the kick starter for these trends is something incredible.
