The Ringbrothers’ 430-HP Chevy K5 Blazer Restomod Was Built Especially for Rapper Future
This is so much more than a simple LS swap.
Bugatti Chirons and Mercedes G-Wagens are usually more like it for celebrities who want expensive cars, but not for all. Jason Momoa had his wife's Mustang restored to an almighty spec; Jay Leno is, of course, Jay Leno; and now, the rapper Future has commissioned a resto-modded K5 Blazer from the Ringbrothers, one of the biggest names in the business.
With a 430-horsepower 6.2-liter LS3 and a 4L80E four-speed transmission, this K5 blazer isn't exactly groundbreaking when it comes to its drivetrain. However, that's plenty of reliable power going through a bulletproof engine and transmission. It also makes up for its conventional powertrain with a nice coat of British Racing Green paint, and gold wheels from HRE.
A few of Future's other rides are equally as flashy, including his original truck of choice—a Bentley Bentayga. He was among the first to buy one back in 2016, joining Meek Mill and Rick Ross with his own ultra-luxe hunk of British metal. Rest assured, though, as he likes his supercars; namely the Porsche 911 Turbo S.
This isn't the first K5 the Ringbrothers have done, either. In April of this year, one of their previous Blazer restomods sold for an incredible $300,000 on Bring a Trailer. Another, known as the "Seaker," was also at SEMA in 2018. Although the guys of course do projects with a variety of other cars, it seems like the Blazer is a favorite of theirs.
It was never specified how much Future paid for his new K5, but rest assured, it was a lot of money. With a custom interior complete with a digital display, new seats and billet aluminum accents, it certainly looks expensive. Combine that with the truck's brand new drivetrain and HRE wheels, and this thing is ready to never see any dirt whatsoever.
