    How in the fuck does not wanting to drive that make somebody pretentious? It's kind of the opposite. Look up the meaning of pretentious.

    It's really only pretentious because most of the people who are saying it looks ridiculous are only saying that because it was made by Will.I.Am. They don't like the car because they don't like the car itself, they don't like the car because they don't like the Black Eyed Peas. Of course there are people who genuinely hate the car because they think it looks dumb, but being on the internet if the general opinion on a thread is "it looks like crap" people will go with the status quo and join in with the hate.

    In this case, it really isn't flashy bullshit. What Will.I.Am was attempting to do was create an auto company to build those cars in Los Angeles to bring jobs back to America and help out his home city.

    He didn't create his own car to drive around in and show up to clubs with to flaunt his fame and wealth, he created his own car to help the american economy.

    Edited:

    He was out driving the car because he's trying to promote the image of his car to persuade people that they may want a car like that.

    Smells like a publicity stunt to get these cars noticed if you ask me... The whole thing sounds too fishy.

    I found this after googling.
    Also within doing research it turns out that the car is built using only OEM Chrysler parts.

    The point is to get the cars noticed. He wants to build them IN AMERICA and bring JOBS to our festering ECONOMY.
    But you know what? You're right. Why should we build these flashy cars, let's tell will to call the whole thing off, we don't need the business and the jobs. In fact, let's take the prototype and throw it in a tire fire lit by burning $100 bills to make sure this thing never helps out the jobless americans.

    Question is, can someone tell me anything about its chassis, suspension, or powertrain? I'm getting the impression that its nothing spectacular.

    Doesn't that mean that you're a pretentious asshole if you build your own home and design it exactly how you want it? What you're argument seems to come down to is that because he's trying to be different he's somehow an asshole.

    If I ever have an obscene amount of money I'm totally gonna have my own home built that'd probably look 'flashy' and ridiculous to most people, and I'm totally gonna have a car custom built to suit me. If I ever get the money I'm gonna have the things in my life made the way I want them so that they look cool to me and work the way I want them to - I'm not gonna rely on some concept artist, or architect designing something that I'll just happen to enjoy.

    I wouldn't want to drive a flashy car it'd probably get stolen or keyed all the time, and you'd constantly have to make awkward smalltalk with people asking about it.

    That car looks horrible.
    A few subtle changes and it'd look accceptable, but... it just looks, somehow... fragile. And the wheels are wrong too.

    The rims are too big.

    It looks like it doesn't belong in the modern world. Not that it's an abomination, but it looks like something an alien would drive one hundred years into the future. Which might be your thing, but the looks are too radical. There's not a curve on that whole damn body. It's like it's made out of Lego.

    As you may recall, the car, shown above, is the first from Will.I.am's new company, IAMAUTO. The prototype creation is understood to use pieces borrowed a donor Delorean and a Dodge Challenger and was built by the team at West Coast Customs. Will.i.am hopes to start serial production of the car near where he grew up in Los Angeles as a way to give jobs back to his hard luck community.
    Same quote from another poster on the first page, different highlight.

    It doesn't look like an amorphous blob like most modern cars, its quite unique.

    I like the low-poly retro look of that car. The white color is a turn-off though. Makes it look like a children's toy.

    Not the smartest thing, but do you honestly think a couple grand to him is anything but pocket change? Jay-z says it best "What's 50 grand to a nigga like me, can you please remind me?"

    It's not like all rappers are insanely rich. They mostly just pretend to be.
    The reason the likes of Jay-Z, P-Diddy and Birdman are so rich is because they own record labels and have made a lot of other artists popular.

    How the hell can you do that to a Delorean? They are perfectly cool as stock.

    Maybe, but you're making an assumption there that people don't think it's ugly just because it is(at least in their eyes). I think it looks pretty bad, and I have no idea who will.i.am is or what his music sounds like.

    I just watched the episode of Top Gear with him on it yesterday. He talked about this exact car and everything. I fucking hate the Black Eyed Peas, but Will is a bit of an interesting person.

    I can't figure out why he has a problem getting it registered. It shouldn't be a problem. What, does he really not want to take like an hour to get it registered?

    At least it doesn't look like it has a pair of breasts unlike the multipla

    It looks like one of those "futuristic" matchbox cars that came from the 60s
