will.i.am unveils his sexy new custom designed Lexus

28 September 2014, 08:52

Los Angeles - will.i.am unveiled his custom designed Lexus NX in Paris on Thursdy night.

The 39-year-old singer hosted a special event at the exclusive venue, Pavillion Cambon in the French capital, where he turned up on the stage inside the impressive vehicle, a special edition Lexus NX 200t F SPORT, before getting out of the car and putting on a scintillating DJ set for the 600-strong crowd.

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.'"

will took to his Twitter account to share the unveiling, he tweeted:

He also share a pic of the car on Instagram with the caption: "Check out my Lexus NX that I designed with @Lexus"

will wowed the crowd with an entertaining DJ set that saw him play several of his own tracks including #thatPOWER and a selection of Black Eyed Peas hits such as I Gotta Feeling.

He had the audience chuckling at one stage when he changed some of the words to his and Britney Spears' collaboration Scream and Shout, replacing her name with Lexus by shouting "will.i.am and Lexus, bitch"

Features of will's NX include an ultra wide body kit, a custom-built steering wheel and hand embroidered Nappa leather interior with his willpower logo and huge 22-inch alloy wheels.
