If you haven’t heard of teenage singer Austin Mahone, then here are two things you need to know.
For starters, he is much like Justin Bieber in that his singing talents were discovered online and since, he’s broken into the mainstream world of music. Of most interest to us, however, are the number of cars he owns.
Certainly the most impressive car in his collection is a brand new BMW i8. As with many other up-and-coming stars, Mahone has decided to have his i8 extensively modified to make it stand out from all the others on the roads of the U.S.
Most significantly, he recently sent it to the guys over at Metro Wrapz. They’ve installed a bespoke matte red wrap and interestingly, the tuner decided to maintain the tri-colour design which comes standard on the i8. However, rather than blue and black offsetting white or silver paint, there are now bright gold elements on the side skirts, front kidney grille surround, BMW badge surrounds and elements of the rear fascia. The remaining surfaces are then finished in gloss black except for the side skirts which are matte black.
While some owners would have stopped after the wrap, Mahone opted to have it fitted with a custom set of gold wheels and a lowered suspension system. The finished look is very distinct and will definitely make the singer noticeable on the streets of Miami.
