If you’re from the Tri-State area (like me, and yes Long Island is included), you know who Funkmaster Flex is. If not, I’ll go wikipedia on you for a minute.
Funkmaster Flex is most commonly known as a DJ for Hot 97. Following Angie Martinez, he’s on from 7pm-12am during the week. When he plays a song and he really likes it, he’ll drop bombs on the song. The more he likes it, the more bombs he drops. He has dropped over 10 bombs on a single rotation.
Besides being a DJ, he’s real heavy into cars. He hosts the Funkmaster Flex Car Show as well as having several shows where he’s customized one of Ludacris’ vehicles, taking Lil’ Kim to a chop shop, going to car shows, etc. Plus in his show, he informs viewers on new products that they can try in their rides.
Well he’s back with a new show and a new line of Ford Taurus. His show is called Full Throttle, with the premise to be about the hottest names in hip-hop talking about cars, girls, music, while being in Flex’s custom shop.
Now for the vehicle. First he did the Expedition, now he’s moved on to the Taurus. The 2010 Funkmaster Flex Edition Ford Taurus, also known as the Taurus SHO. The purpose behind the customization was to take the vehicle and customize it in a way to preserve the timeless aspect and to make it mature. The exterior of the vehicle features a two-tone black and metal grey paint job complete with custom black 22-inch wheels and Pirelli tires. The vehicle was also lowered with a HR spring kit and a Billet Grille and custom door handles were added. In addition, the vehicle features a one-off front spoiler and rear window wing. The interior was left the same with the exception of adding a black suede headliner and the signature FMF logos on the headrests. The Engine has been replaced with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, which delivers V-8 levels of power (roughly about 365 horsepower), but with the V-6 fuel economy.
