A few years ago, the Black Eyed Peas member even started his a car company, called IAMAUTO. Eventually, it was discovered that the vehicle he said was made from custom GM parts was actually a widebody DeLorean made by West Coast Customs.

Nowadays, Will makes the statements about his creations a little less public, never claiming that the Model S is his creation entirely. But you've got to give him some credit. Even Elon Musk might be grateful to him, as Will.i.Am bought a Tesla Roadster before it was cool, way back in 2010.

A few days ago, this full car spotter video was shot in Beverly Hills. It's strange that that there aren't that many people around it, considering how wild it looks. The entire sides of the vehicle have been extended, and scalloped cutouts were integrated into the doors.

The Model S has custom rear doors as well, since the flush-fitting door handles have been moved forward. A later video we've just discovered shows Will doing some improv singing with a street artist. Eventually, we also find out that his Tesla now features coach doors.

People say the wheels disappear into nothing, as they have no spokes and a very deep dish configuration.

Is it ugly? Undoubtedly so, but so is the Stormtrooper helmet Will must have been looking at when he made this thing. The suspension is too low, and the wheels are impractical, but so is fighting with a laser sword, yet everybody has fantasies about being a Jedi.

Will all the money he is making, Will.i.Am could have been the next G63 AMG customer. But as we've already proven, the guy likes to go down the unusual route as much as possible.
