Fresh off the SEMA debut of the 1965 Ford Mustang Espionage from the Ringbrothers, Jay Leno had an opportunity to drive the completely custom Mustang while also checking it out at his famous garage.
The Espionage is based around a standard 1965 Mustang Fastback but has been completely overhauled to include new mechanicals as well as a bespoke body. Importantly, the new exterior hasn’t just been widened by two inches on each side but is also made from lightweight carbon fibre and has been finished in a classic colour dubbed ‘Spy Green’.
Beneath the skin, Ringbrothers opted for a 427 cubic inch V9 engine from Wegner Motorsports. When equipped with a powerful Whipple supercharger, the engine delivers an immense 959 hp and 858 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the engine is a six-speed Tremec T56 transmission driving the rear wheels. A new exhaust is also present as are newly-designed headers with 2-inch primaries.
