First, this car is made of carbon fiber. The structure remains steel, but all of the carbon panels were designed to both complete this one-off car, and also be sold as a "kit" to replace every sheetmetal panel attached to the original steel Unibody. The Ring Brothers not only build beautiful cars, they also sell the parts they create to the public.

The Espionage is named for its mysterious unnamed owner and the Spy Green BASF Glasurit 90-Line Waterborne paint color. It is powered by a 959hp Whipple-blown LS9 and has huge brakes and trick suspension for whatever you need to do with that much power under shoe. Insane drivetrain aside, this car is exceptional because of the details and hand-wrought parts that make this car a 1965 Mustang almost in silhouette only. Take a look.
