Chris Bridges is better known to the world as Ludacris. His albums have gone multi-platinum, he's a Grammy winner, and he's also an actor—most famously as Tej Parker in the Fast and the Furious movies. Additionally, he's a fan of Acura. More specifically, he's in love with his own 1993 Acura Legend. The car has been a big part of Luda's life and it wasn't in the best of shape... until Acura stepped in and brought it back to life.
The Ludacris Legend has received a full restoration. We're talking frame, body, chassis work, and then upgrades from there. Acura fitted the Legend with 18-inch wheels from Rays and then popped in large six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes behind those new rollers. The Legend also received a new sound system from Pioneer which includes Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
