The Florida F1 Grand Prix was held last weekend. On the sidelines, AMG featured music artist and entrepreneur Will.i.am, number one on The Black Eyed Peas, and West Coast Customs, who you might remember from their creations in ‘Pimp my ride’ on MTV or ‘Inside West Coast Customs on Netflix’. . And like the cars on those shows, this Will.i.AMG isn’t the most refined.
AMG GT x G-Class
Will.i.am likes some extreme tuning, which was also proven by his “pimping” Tesla. This is Will.i.AMG, the result of a project called “The Flip”, based on the AMG GT four-door. It is used mainly because of the long wheelbase, because in the end there are only two doors left. They open in return. But the car’s most striking feature is its long nose that ends in the front of the G-Class. Also note the antique AMG-look tyres.
The car should draw attention to the “i.am/Angel Foundation”. The charity wants to give young people from disadvantaged neighborhoods in the United States access to training in STEAM subjects, short for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, so they can find future-oriented jobs. The car comes with a “Bear Witness” clothing set, and a portion of the proceeds from its sale will go to the project.
Are you a fan? Then know that there will be a six-part series on building the car. The video project called “DRIVE” will be shown on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival later this year.
