Say What!? will.i.am’s ‘Futuristic Supercar’ First Looked Like This

Will.i.am's Pimped Out Ride
Remember the sleek looking silver blue ride will.i.am drives in the new video for “#ThatPower” featuring the one and only Justin Bieber as a hologram?

Well, it turns out that hot set of wheels was once a pile of junk.

According to master welder (and will..am's friend) Austin Weiss of The Garage in Florida who performed the custom work, the Black Eyed Peas frontman turned it into a reported $900,000 work of art … get this... out of a VW Bug that took two years to build.

“The car started out as a 1958 Volkswagon,” Weiss told Celebuzz said, adding that all they had to work with was a drawing that Will had doodled on a napkin.

“Will wanted an old school Morgan/vette mix. He gave me a few drawings and we went to town. It's a very different build. It's a crazy car for a great artist and friend.”

The exterior paint and interior upholstery was then completed by West Coast Customs.

And if it looks like it can go fast, it can definitely fly with a little help from another sports car. Will.i.am pimped it out with a supercharged Corvette LS3 engine.

This is the near-final outcome.
