Tyga’s 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Just Got Ruined

Travis Barker used to come up with the greatest beats back in the day Blink-182 was big. Nowadays, he’s busy posing in rap videos with the likes of Kid Ink and Ty Dolla Sign, which may pass as odd. Another rapper he worked with is Tyga, and so far it seemed the two shared a similar taste in cars, but with this customization, Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend has messed up big time.

There’s one thing celebrities do quite often: they mix genres. So while most of the rappers remain faithful to the style, some of them collaborate with rockers and such. It’s of no importance what artists do when it comes to the auto industry unless this affects car style. And this time, it does.

Since Baker and Thank You God Always (Tyga) have recently collaborated for a new single, it's safe to assume they’re also friends. Unfortunately, the latter does not appear to have been influenced by the famous drummer when it comes to car tuning. The 25-year-old rapper has recently visited the Calabasas Luxury Motorcars - a favorite garage among celebrities in California - to refresh his most esteemed ride, a classic Rolls-Royce.

The two artists may share the same passion for the British luxury maker, but spending time with the Kardashians seems to have influenced Tyga a little bit too much. The 1959 Silver Cloud II is an iconic model that remains one of the examples of the good old days, when the British style would still be present in Rolls-Royce’s creations.

Applying golden accents to the vehicle has turned the car into a circus-worthy contraption that may have onlookers’ heads turn, but not in the right way. The wheels also have been changed, with the caps receiving a similar treatment. One must wonder if the abrupt changes only affected the vehicle’s exterior or if they also changed things under the hood. After all, nothing compares to the 6.2-liter V8 engine the 1959 model was initially built with.
