The BMW i8 is a car that needs no introduction. When we drove it last year, it was the star attraction at many a gas stations and restaurant parking lots. But how does one take a car that’s already unique in its own right, and make it even more so? Ask Austin Mahone.
 
The 19-year-old singer took his BMW i8 down to Miami and corralled a number of tuners to help put it together. Metro Wrapz fitted it with the sultry matte red wrap and gold accents. Vossen added even more bling with forged VPS-305T wheels. While Slammered helped bring it all a little closer to the ground with suspension upgrades.

While the exterior got a serious upgrade, the 1.5-liter hybrid engine remains stock (as far as we know). That means Mahone’s i8 pumps out 357 horsepower, and can manage a 0-60 mph run of just 4.5 seconds.
 
By our standards, it’s one of the most unique i8s we’ve ever seen. It’s something that Iron Man/Tony Stark would drive if he wasn’t obligated to drive  Question is, what do you think of it? Tell us in the comments below whether you think Mahone’s i8 is hot or not.
