The Black Eyed Peas frontman revealed that he’s going to start his own car company and bring jobs to Los Angeles.
“I’m a big technology freak and geek and I invested my money in building my own vehicle because I want to bring jobs to the ghetto that I come from, so why not invest?” he said on Leno’s Tonight Show. “Like I invested in making a demo to start the Black Eyed Peas, we did that, now I want to invest to have a car company in the neighborhood that I come from.”
Will.I.Am, whose real name is William Adams Jr., is currently calling the new company IAMAUTO and it’s a two-door coup with beautiful white bodywork. Underneath it looks a lot like a Chrysler.
“I went to Chrysler and got a whole bunch of parts to where it’s still certified as a legal vehicle on the streets,” he said.
“So I don’t really mess with the airbag configurations or things like that. Kept the chassis and we create the shell, which is the body and the interior and the audio interface, I got Beats audio, it’s sick, it’s really fresh.”
Hmm, it really does ooks like he’s on to something with his IAMAUTO.
