will.i.am receives his own bespoke version of the new Lexus NX

Article by Christian A., on September 25, 2014

We already know that Will.i.am loves cars and that he partnered with Lexus in order to promote the new NX crossover, but today the Grammy award-winning artist took things even further. Will.i.am unveiled his own bespoke version of the Lexus NX and honestly, the vehicle looks pretty impressive.

As you can see from the photos, the vehicle received an ultra-wide body kit that combines brushed aluminum and carbon vynil with the matt pearl white paintwork as well as the black-tinted panoramic glass roof.

The front and rear flared wings get a diamond-shaped design and cover the massive 22-inch alloy wheels featuring a black-machined finish, complemented by the orange brake calipers.

Inside, the Lexus NX gets brushed aluminum trim, seats upholstered in soft Nappa leather, brushed aluminum floor mats and the willpower logo embroidered on the seats.

The interior also includes the patented Wireless Charging Tray located in the centre console box, a 10-speaker Pioneer Surround Sound system as well as four 180 degrees cameras that can capture panoramic photographs and videos while driving.

Based on the NX 200t F Sport model, the bespoke NX is powered by the new 2.0-liter VVT-iW turbo petrol engine that produces 235 hp (175 kW) and 350 Nm of torque between 1,650 and 4,000 rpm. Bolted to a six-speed automatic transmission, the vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds.

LEXUS NX GETS EXCLUSIVE DESIGN BY WILL.I.AM

An ultra-stylish interpretation of the new Lexus NX, created by the musician, innovator and global entrepreneur will.i.am, was revealed last night at an exclusive launch party in Paris. The Grammy award-winning artist presented his vision for Lexus’s first luxury compact crossover before performing a DJ set for invited guests from across Europe.

The special edition NX 200t F Sport brings will.i.am’s flair and creativity together with the NX’s eye-catching striking angles. Featuring cutting-edge on-board technology, a sharply styled exterior and a sport design, the NX is aimed at younger, urban customers who value good design.

Talking about his special version of the NX, will.i.am said: “When I found out Lexus wanted me to be involved in the Striking Angles campaign, my first thought was, can I design a car with you? I am honoured to be launching my bespoke Lexus NX F Sport in Paris, this car is super fresh and incorporates my personal style. My point of view is, the best kind of design will encourage other people to interpret that design.”

Alain Uyttenhoven, Head of Lexus Europe, said: “Working with will.i.am to produce a bespoke take on the NX has been a fantastic experience. We were immediately struck by his passion to take the bold design of the NX F Sport to a whole new level. The striking design of the NX has already captured the imagination of customers worldwide and will.i.am’s interpretation extends the car’s personality and character in a new direction that embodies his creativity and vision.”
