Mercedes Flip Is One-Off Bear-Faced Weirdness By Will.i.am
Although the WILL.I.AMG is primarily based on the 2023 Mercedes AMG GT four-door sedan, the exteriors are modified with hints from other Mercedes vehicles. Mercedes suggests that this vehicle borrows inspirational design cues from two other similar vehicles — the broader chassis of the SLS AMG Gullwing and the front grille and the headlamps from the Mercedes G-Class. Unlike the standard AMG GT, this unique creation by will.i.am and Mercedes features two suicide doors — with hinges in the back rather than in the front (or the top, as is the case with the Gullwing).
The roof is all-glass but split into two halves. The car gets a predominantly silver paint job with hints of black and yellow along the body. Meanwhile, the special bear logo is present on the front grille and the custom hubcaps on the wheels. As the artist suggests in the press release, “I didn’t touch the engine, because AMG really does make the best engines.”
The exact details about any other internal modifications, if any, have not been shared yet. We’ll certainly get a better idea of the unique details and upgrades included in this vehicle soon, as Mercedes has announced a six-part documentary called “DRIVE” illustrating the entire process of customizing the vehicle. The documentary is being previewed today and all six parts will premiere at the 2022 Cannes film festival this may (out of competition).
