With A G-Class Face, Is This The Boxiest Coupe In Town Or What?

Designed to be a fundraiser, WILL.I.AM and Mercedes AMG will unveil a bizarre one-off coupe today (05.05.2022)

Will.I.Am and Mercedes-AMG have collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind model, dubbed the WILL.I.AMG. With a G-Class front end and an AMG GT look, the model is set to be unveiled later today.

Overview

William James Adams Jr., better known by his stage name Will.I.Am, is a member of the popular pop band Black Eyed Peas as well as a brand ambassador for Mercedes-AMG electrified models. Will.I.Am, along with Mercedes, has teased this special edition vehicle on Instagram.

The Will.I.AM.G

Perhaps the most intriguing feature from what we can see from these teasers has to be that front end, which is inspired by the legendary G-Class. The round LED headlights, that square snout, and AMG-looking air intakes on the bumper scream nothing else but the mighty G. Now, matching the face of a rugged SUV to a sports car is even more remarkable.

Moving to the side and it’s a different story altogether. While the roofline is reminiscent of an AMG GT coupe or E Class Coupe, the rear end will remind you of an AMG GT 4-door. The four conventional doors have had to make way for two long, now rear-hinged suicide doors and the SLR-style air intakes on the front fenders are a nice touch. All things considered, does all this work together? Well, that is debatable, but you can’t get away from the fact that people will be talking about this one-off car for many years to come.

“Cars are my passion, especially those from AMG. And I love to improve an existing product, to push the limits, and to fuse things that were never supposed to go together; that’s hip hop – the house I was born in. And that’s what drives me – I am honored to be part of AMG’s journey into the future of fantastic hybrid high-performance driving,” said Will.I.Am

The Wait Is Almost Over
