Brantley Gilbert’s Got a New F-150, and It’s Totally Tricked Out — See Pics!
Brantley Gilbert has been a road warrior most of his career, so it's only fitting that he get a truck made just for him. The country singer recently teamed up with SpeedKore Performance Group for a new Ford F-150 project.
The truck made its debut this week at the 2018 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev., but the singer was among one of the first people to see the final product that he collaborated on during a special viewing in Nashville. “This truck blew away every expectation I had,” Gilbert remarked after seeing the F-150 for the first time. “The attention to detail is incredible. There’s over 850 horsepower in this thing. So, it’s really, really fast and beautiful. It’s unreal.”
In a video of the truck's reveal, Gilbert is in awe at the final product:
"Oh my god! Got my name in the seat," Gilbert exclaims while talking to the man who helped design his new truck. "After we had our talk, I had that little booklet you gave me about concepts that we were thinking about doing. I've been looking at that thing like a little kid at Christmas and this is 10 times better than I ever could have imagined."
Gilbert's name is emblazoned in the truck's new upholstery, which, according to a press release, features Bomber distressed European coffee brown leather with French stitching and carbon fiber highlights. His name also is spelled out in billet lettering on the tailgate, as well as his logo on the doors and leather seats.
"When Brantley steps into the cargo bed, he can fire up the amp and grab a guitar from the custom aluminum guitar and amp rack," a statement reads. "This gives him the opportunity to break into an impromptu gig anywhere, anytime." SpeedKore is known for its pro touring conversions of early model muscle cars like the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, and now they're getting into truck building. SpeedKore worked with a design team to modify the F-150 to create a "more aggressive appearance." See what they came up with.
