In the world of elite builds for SEMA, one of the undisputed top dogs is the outfit from Ringbrothers. The brothers Ring, Jim and Mike, had a trio of builds ready for SEMA 2k23, which is in itself something pretty damn impressive. Companies at this level that put in thousands of hours of work for usually only have the time to create a single build, but Ringbrother managed to have three cars ready for the annual show. SEMA builds are obviously a great advert for companies that have cars on display and so they pull out all the stops for a build and paying work goes on the back burner, yet somehow these guys still managed to carry on with normal customer work while pumping out three SEMA-quality builds. This build, a 1961 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, is something very different to the usual builds we see coming out of the Wisconsin workshop because from the outside there’s not that much going on, it’s so subtle that many only realised it was a brother's build when told. This Rolls is a stunning restomod sleeper, and it goes by the name of Paramount. The exterior still features all the British car’s original lines, in fact, the only changes made besides the flawless white paintwork are a set of wheels and that iconic Ringbrothers badge on the boot lid. The wheels are perfect for the build, they’re a set of 18-inch hoops from EVOD Industries, and while they’re bigger than OEM, they still retain the original look and feel. The Rolls-Royce logo on them remains upright thanks to being gyroscopic, another feature taken from a new Rolls. Unseen behind the solid-style wheels is a set of 6-pot Baer Pro calipers and 380 mm discs.
