JUSTIN BIEBER FINALLY RECEIVES HIS NEXT LEVEL CUSTOM ROLLS-ROYCE WRAITH
Justin Bieber finally welcomed a new addition to his garage, a custom Rolls-Royce, and it's looking terrific.
A while back, the singer wanted to purchase a futuristic Rolls-Royce prototype, the 103EX. It was not for sale, though, as the car had not been put into production by Rolls-Royce after it was unveiled back in 2016.
Justin then reached out to the founder and CEO of West Coast Customs, Ryan Friedlinghaus, who made his day. West Coast Customs offered to build him something like it instead.
Now, the final result has finally been delivered, and the singer couldn't be more impressed.
The Los Angeles-based customizer shared a video capturing the singer's first sight of his brand new car.
In the video, Justin promptly drops to his knees and appears to start crying just before saying, "I can't believe it".
That reaction is wholly understandable given the project's three-year road to fruition.
The custom Rolls Royce was inspired by the marque's Vision Next 100 concept – the 103EX for short. The 103EX measures nearly 20 feet in length and five feet in height.
After touring the world for four years, the 103EX, which is Rolls-Royce's answer to the future of mobility, found a permanent home at England's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
In creating Bieber's custom RR, similar to the 103EX, Friedlinghaus and his team used a Rolls-Royce Wraith as the base for the car, then imparted a few futuristic style points to mirror the muse. The most notable feature is the wheel covers. They conceal the tyres and make the coupe look as though it's levitating.
The Wraith was also created with a more detailed front end and resculpted fenders.
For the team to perfect this, they had to scan the exterior of the Wraith. Afterwards, they used a 3D modeller to create the custom moulds for the new body kit. To ensure that the fitment was perfect, they had to test-fit each part and modify them as needed. This long and intricate process is more akin to classic coachbuilding rather than a standard body kit installation.
The sleek, spaceship-like speedster was finished in a two-tone colour of gloss silver and matte grey. It was fitted with hidden light bars along the lower edge of the wheel covers to make the car even more extraordinary.
Could this get any more perfect? Well, yes, it can. To add more class and perfection to the interior, the West Coast Customs team mirrored the exterior. They used two-tone leather upholstery and even equipped a professionally tuned audio setup in the boot. According to Friedlinghaus, it is "not anything you would ever expect to hear out of a car".
This is truly a one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce. To find out more about how Friedlinghaus and his team created Bieber's vision, then check out the West Coast Customs video below.
