Blacklake XT1 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Blacklake XT1 starts out as a Silverado 1500 crew cab and is then transformed with a carbon-kevlar wide body, which adds 8.0 inches of width. Blacklake claims the widened fenders were designed to an OEM level of fit and finish; the company even replaced the entire bed rather than simply attaching new panels to it.

The wide body makes room for 35-inch BF Goodrich KM3 tires and 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels. The truck also gets long-travel suspension with billet aluminum control arms and JRI internal-bypass shocks.

Blacklake adds a Lingenfelter/Magnuson supercharger and uses the HP Tuners ECU to get 650 horsepower out of the stock 6.2-liter V-8. The XT1 retains the Silverado’s stock 10-speed automatic transmission, and features 3.73 front and rear-end gear ratios and an electronic locking rear differential.

Pricing starts at around $250,000.
