You won’t be able to unsee Will.i.am’s custom Tesla Model S
Last weekend, Will.i.am’s customized and heavily modified Tesla Model S was spotted street-parked in Beverly Hills. Luckily (or unluckily, depending on your aesthetic sensibilities) for us, someone captured a walk-around video of the thing.
From the detailed video shot in the dark, we can see that the rear doors have been made into rear-hinged suicide doors. However, they still retain the stock handles that extend as the driver gets near.
The fellow who shot the video also points out that the customized rear doors feature air intakes. These likely provide extra air to the rear brakes. Or at least I hope they do. Otherwise, what’s the point?
Say what you will about the deep-dish wheels and sharpened body lines all over the car. I think we can all agree, though, that the new big stupid grin on the car’s new grille is the worst feature. In fact, I dare say it’s in the running for all-time worst grille shape.
It is grinning so wide, it reminds me of “Totoro” from the animated Japanese movie My Neighbor Totoro. But, you know, without any of the charm.
All of that said, I will give Will.i.am credit for trying to improve upon the deeply boring stock exterior design. Sure, he’s truly missed the mark and we’re all worse off for looking at it, but at least he tried, right?
