will.i.am starting own car company

will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas starting own car company in Cali

If the guy who invented Paypal can start his own car company, then why can't the lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas? The one and only will.i.am has decided to throw his hat into the car-making ring with a new company that he is calling IAMAUTO.

So far, we have only one photo of the coupe (above), which looks a bit like a 1980s Maserati and Doc Brown's time machine had a love child. Will.i.am stopped by The Tonight Show to officially discuss the vehicle – a good idea since Jay Leno seems to have a bit of pull with the car enthusiasts. The singer-turned-would-be-auto-tycoon tells Leno that the vehicle is built with Chrysler bits (likely a Dodge Challenger), and the tunes will be special, of course, with Beats By Dre supplying the hardware. The artist is building the vehicle in Los Angeles in an effort to spur job growth in the region.

Hit the jump to watch will.i.am talk cars with Leno. The video starts with a musical number, but we suggest fast-forwarding to 3:40 to the interview.


Looks like a fail to me.

Name of the company sucks and the car is an abomination.

I see Timpo got a job as an automotive designer.

vafanculo 01-06-2012 06:07 PM

That looks like a collaboration of cars in one. Might aswell have put altezza lights as headlights.

wants to create jobs? More like he wants to create a legacy for himself. Many better ways to help the community than starting a ridiculous car company that is going to fail in a few years.

Some shit I would've thought cool at the age of 6.

InvisibleSoul 01-07-2012 11:11 AM

A few too many angles... might have been more the flavour from 25 years ago.

Gridlock 01-07-2012 11:12 AM

Looks like the lego cars I used to build.

Gridlock 01-07-2012 03:30 PM

Will the car auto-tune itself?

If the Black-eyed Peas music is rock for people that don't like rock, hip-hop for those that don't like hip-hop and rap for those that don't like rap, is this a car for those that don't like cars?

(I'm gonna thank the office for that one)

Wow that Arash engine is pretty insane though. 850 BHP NA out of 5.5L.
