The Atlanta-based musician commissioned a fully customized, LS-powered K5 Blazer from the Wisconsin-based Ringbrothers
SPRING GREEN, Wis. (Sept. 24, 2020) — Custom car builder and parts manufacturer Ringbrothers recently completed and delivered a 1971 Chevrolet K5 Blazer commissioned by hip-hop superstar Future. The Blazer features a 6.2-liter LS3 engine that produces 430 horsepower and is mated to a 4L80-E transmission. A custom BASF British Racing Green paint scheme is atop a body refinished with 3M products, while gold 18-inch HRE wheels complete the look.
“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.”
Future’s K5 Blazer also features a custom tan interior by Upholstery Unlimited with several Ringbrothers touches throughout. The exhaust is provided by Flowmaster, with engine coolant by Prestone, and Motul engine oil inside the LS3.
“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.”
Known for its muscle car builds, Ringbrothers completed its first K5 Blazer in 2018. The platform took off in popularity, and Ringbrothers released several K5-specific products, including a glove box door, hood hinges, and a dash gauge bezel. Future’s Blazer features those parts, along with a custom carbon fiber hood and custom tailgate with integrated seating. The musician’s Blazer also features a JL Audio sound system.
