• Akon’s ride: Spyker C8 on Savini wheels

Who is Akon everybody knows. But for sure not many of you know that he just finished preparing his ride for 2012: a very cool Spyker C8 equipped with Savini Forged SV-29s Centerlock wheels. Its true this is not the most beautiful tuned C8, but yet again everyone know that rappers have a stranger taste when it comes about tuning their cars.

The good thing is that he did not ruined the exterior of the car and he limited to only updating the car’s interior. But that ugly yellow custom paint is more than enough. At least for our taste, maybe some of you might like it.

All the work has been done by Exclusive Motoring in Miami, Florida and includes the addition of a new set of One-Off 20" Staggered SV-29s Centerlock with custom paint.

Akon’s garage also include: a white Porsche Panamera equipped with Savini wheels, a white Ferrari 458 Italia and two Lamborghini: a Gallardo and a Murcielago.

I’m a fan of Akon and his car is great. The looks in interior is fine and the exterior is the best. The wheels takes them all.

The very first part that impressed me most is the very unique and striking wheels. When it comes to cars, I think Akon has the taste on choosing his car. Basically these car is pop for me or should I say click to me. The looks is very stunning. I want to see this personally.

Akon is one of my idols. I like the style of his car especially the wheels but I don’t like the yellow paint. Great model.

I saw this car up close and personal about a month and a half ago, and unless he’s changed it since then, the accents are now tangerine orange. Somehow, it looks better, but it still goofs up a very nice looking car, in my opinion.

Akon is a head turner and so with this car of him. Very stunning!! That Savini wheels make the car looks like a supercar and not a celebrity car. I wonder what would i feel if i am riding on it.
