Ringbrothers Pantera ADRNLN Goes Up For Auction
After paying a visit to the absolutely amazing shop owned by the Ring brothers, I developed a massive appreciation for the expert level artistry that these two brothers turn out. It’s as if every single detail the brothers touch is perfect. You get lost staring at pieces for hours and hours. The cars they turn out are works of kinetic art, and now, you can own one of those amazing pieces. Many of the Ring’s creations never see another set of hands, but every so often, one of these amazing creations comes up for sale. This time it's the absolutely stunning Pantera ADRNLN.

It started life as a 1971 De Tomaso Pantera, but as soon as the Ring’s got their hands on it, it quickly became a different animal altogether. The car is extensively modified to where it’s more of an homage to a Pantera than it is an actual Pantera. Gone is the original Ford 351 Cleveland engine, and in its place, a brand new GM-sourced LS3 built by Wegner Motorsports making a grand total of 600 horsepower. It’s safe to say that this car now goes like a rocket ship, or how it should have come from the factory.
That being said, one of the most iconic parts on this car is the custom two tone Nike interior. When Nike approached the brothers, they wanted to make this a true driver’s car. With that goal in mind, the drivers section is bathed in cream colored leather, while the passenger is a dark and brooding black. That design flair was intended so as to not distract the driver from anything but actually driving the car.

ADRNLN will be auctioned off at this year’s Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, this coming January. The last Ring brothers car that came up for auction sold for a staggering $346,500. This however, is a Pantera. Add the Ring brothers pedigree to that and it might go through the roof.
We can’t wait to see what this beast goes for.
