Future's Chevrolet Blazer is like no other in the world.
Music artists often commission unique rides to help them stand out from the crowd. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, for example, once commissioned Ferrari and Pininfarina to build a one-off tribute to the classic Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer based on a Ferrari 458 Italia. Now, rap star Future has shown off his new custom 1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer. The Atlanta-based rap star commissioned the custom car builder Ringbrothers to build the SUV to his unique specification.
Under the hood, the custom Blazer is powered by a General Motors 6.2-liter LS3 engine that produces 430 horsepower and comes mated to a 4L80-E automatic transmission.
Styling-wise, Future's Blazer is finished in custom BASF British Racing Green paint and the body is refinished with 3M products. Gold 18-inch HRE wheels and a custom exhaust by Flowmaster also help make the rapper's off-roader stand out form the crowd.
Other unique touches include a custom carbon fiber hood, a custom tailgate with integrated seating, a custom glove box door, hood hinges, a dash gauge bezel, and a JL Audio sound system. We think you'll agree the resulting design looks a lot more striking and rugged than the modern Chevrolet Blazer, which was reborn for the 2019 model year as a crossover.
"We first started building Blazers a few years back, and they've really taken off in popularity since then," said Ringbrothers co-owner Jim Ring.
"There is no assembly line at our shop, as each build is completed by hand, bespoke to the owner's request. There is no other Blazer in the world like this one." Inside, Future's K5 Blazer features a custom tan interior by Upholstery Unlimited with unique touches by Ringbrothers.
"We're humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this," said Ringbrothers co-owner Mike Ring. "We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It's an honor we don't take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We're glad Future appreciates that."
It's not known how much Future paid for the customized SUV, but given what Mike says, we're probably talking supercar money.
