Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the event, he said: "I didn't want to make a Frankenstein, I just wanted to enhance. The NX is an amazing design by default so if that's the default then I thought why can't we make it better. Why wasn't it wider?
"I'm pretty sure my design isn't too different from the original design. Because the designer was like, 'Yes, it's sexy, there are striking angles.'"
The Black Eyed Peas frontman admitted there were certain elements of the black and white car he wanted to alter, such as making it even wider than his final effort, but he wasn't able to due to safety concerns.
He added:"If we widen it then we have to lower it so can we chop the window? Then they say, 'Well, we can't do that because then we're going to have air bag problems and we've already passed all the safety stuff.'"
