Police in Los Angeles have impounded rapper Will.i.am's custom car. The recording artist was reportedly driving the gullwing coupe around the city with no license plate. When officers stopped the Black Eyed Peas frontman and checked the registration, they found an issue and sent the car to lockup. Will.i.am was cited for both the registration issue and failing to display a license plate, but was otherwise cooperative. A friend drove him from the scene. Police say the vehicle will be held until the proper paperwork can be organized.

As you may recall, the car, shown above, is the first from Will.I.am's new company, IAMAUTO. The prototype creation is understood to use pieces borrowed a donor Delorean and a Dodge Challenger and was built by the team at West Coast Customs. Will.i.am hopes to start serial production of the car near where he grew up in Los Angeles as a way to give jobs back to his hard luck community.

      This car is very poorly designed. There is no harmony at all and the details are childish, gawky and inelegant. For someone who claims to be an auto enthusiast, this is pretty embarassing.

        And he actually complimented the design too! Seeing that Clarkson has no problem pissing off people he doesn't like, he must really like/respect Will.i.am or his cause with the car. Is his hard luck community also legally blind too?

          I think Clarkson honestly hadn't heard of him until 2 seconds before he walked into the interview. Therefore, hadn't heard his music or even known of him long enough to give him ****.

          All non-us folks love our celebs. I'm sure Clarkson hope to one day be as 'cool' as Will. Sad but true.

      Can these talentless hacks that get popular off the backs off stupid people please keep their business ideas to themselves and stay out of society as much as possible? The absolute worst thing about money is that it gives stupid people a voice.

      Good. One less weirdly ugly vehicle on the road.

      Looks like a rather poor kit-bash, but then again that's pretty much what it is.

      It is a SHAME that it still bears the name DeLorean... what on earth did he do to what once was an iconic car!?
