Let's take a look at the ADRNLN, a modification result car worked by the Ringbrothers on the  De Tomaso Pantera of 1971. As we could be seen beneath the unique, if divisive, exterior, is a Seventies muscle icon packing some serious punches to transform it into a modern styled supercar. How not, Jim and Mike Ring of The Ringbrothers have dedicated more than 5,000 hours in building the car, in collaboration with Nike who designed the interior.

It's clear that The Ringbrothers rebuilt every panel on the 'ADRNLN', by refining and updating all the Pantera's rare classic elements. As a result, the car has a lower and wider stance than the standard Pantera, which is further enhanced with larger wheel arches as well, including the headlights have been integrated and modernized with assertive lines.

Subtle design curves like small wheel flares and custom rocker panels with brake cooling ducts adorn the Pantera's steel monocoque body, which has been finished off in BASF's Glasurit 90-Line paint system, delivering the signature Ringbrothers look. Finally, the engine bay received some added accenting courtesy of products from Hose Candy.

Meanwhile, the original Pantera's 351 hp engine has also been replaced with The GM's 600 hp LS3 eight-cylinder engine coupled with Holley's electronic fuel injection system. The power of engine is channeled through a five-speed ZF transmission, while the double-stainless steel exhaust is done by the Flowmaster. For the legs by the modifier then pinned the HRE 'S101' three-piece forged wheels wrapped with the Nitto Invo's tires with stopping power produced by the Baer six-piston calipers at each corner.

The interior designed by the innovation skunk works at Nike, in which they give a touch of two-tone colors by using high-quality genuine leather for a cockpit design that is more focused on driving pleasure. The Nike's design team so added a waffle design to the pedals and other transmission parts, and created a pair of suitable foothold for the 'ADRNLN'.
As qouted of the Barrett-Jackson sites, the De Tomaso Pantera 'ADRNLN' is debuted at the 2013 SEMA event and sold at the 2015 Scottsdale auction event at a pretty fantastic price of $300,000. Unfortunately, the ADRNLN could not surpassed the company's most expensive car had ever been auctioned off, ie the Ford Mustang 'Dragon', which sold for $346,000 (approx Rp. 4.4 billions).😉 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE RINGBROTHERS | CLASSICDRIVER | DESIGNBOOM | BARRETT-JACKSON | GTSPIRIT ]
