Austin Mahone is an American singer and songwriter, and while he hasn’t achieved a Justin Bieber status, he certainly reached a certain status in the automotive world by the proud owner of a BMW i8 hybrid sportscar. He’s not even 20 years old and he’s already behind the wheel of one of the most coveted cars on the market.

As any other artists that are looking to stand out even more, Mahone has decided to have his i8 extensively modified to make it stand out.

Working with Metro Wrapz, the i8 gets a bespoke matte red wrap with a tri-tone color scheme. Instead of the standard blue and black, the paint combination now features the red with a yellow and silver accents. 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.

Furthermore, the i8 features a set of custom wheels, painted in a gold color while the entire ride has been lowered to improve its stance and driving dynamics.

No power upgrades were part of the tuning plan at the moment, so BMW’s most advanced car built to date is still powered by a hybrid system producing 362 horsepower and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) for a 0 to 100 km/h of 4.4 seconds.
