Akon’s White Panamera

Akon adds another car to his incredible fleet. This time it is a white Porsche Panamera with staggered white and black 22″ Savini wheels. It seems like white is the new black this year with cars, especially in Miami. The car was customized by The Auto Firm in Miami.

The Panamera looks a little plain without a body kit but the wheels do help. I hold Akon to a higher standard and would have liked to see him take this custom build to the next level with some more black accents and maybe even a Mansory body kit.

Akon’s White Ferrari 458 Italia

Good to see Akon still doing his thing with custom cars. He is definitely a car nut and has now picked up a white Ferrari 458 Italia. I love the color of the car with the blacked out tail lights…but thats where it ends.

The car is sitting up way too high, very bad move. The design of the wheels is alright, you cant go wrong with a split 5 spoke on a sports car but chrome and white finish? Really? This is not an S550 or a 7 Series, he should have went with some brushed and/or black concave wheels.

Just another case of somebody buying an awesome car but butchering it with customization that was not well thought out.

Gucci Mane | Black and Red Wide Body Challenger {VIDEO}

Gucci Mane is one of the best rappers out there right now and he has some of the hottest rides. Gucci Mane is always one step ahead of everybody else in the car game. He was one of the first people in the United States with the Ferrari 458 Italia and now he has one of the baddest wide body Challengers.

This black Challenger has an incredible wide body conversion, 5 inches wider on each side. It had 26×15″ wheels in the rear which is unheard of on a car like this. This car was customized by Quick and the boys over at Cars of Atlanta. I just wish this car was any color other than black, it would look even better. The black color makes the wide body work a little more subtle and not as obvious.

This car needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. I think the $150k price tag that Gucci is talking about might be a little exaggerated, but none the less this is a very special car.

Drumma Boy | Black/Orange Camaro

Drumma Boy is a music producer and rapper from Memphis. Here he is standing in front of his black 2010 Camaro SS with 22″ and 24″ Forgiato Martellato wheels.

The car is all black with a very bright metallic orange color on the racing stripes, the chevy emblem, and the brake calipers. The wheels are also all black with orange trim. The car looks great with the simple and unique color scheme.

I think Drumma Boy should remix Wiz Khalifa’s black and yellow song with a black and orange version.

Richie Rich’s Silver Bentley Continental GTC

Oakland based rapper, Richie Rich, is seen standing here in front of his silver Bentley Continental GTC. The car is sitting on 22″ chrome and black Forgiato wheels. The car was customized by California Wheels.

The wheels are staggered, 22×9 and 22×10.5. They have custom Bentley center caps. My favorite thing about this Bentley is that they painted the windows and trim on the wheels black. It is a very subtle thing to do but it really makes the chrome spokes pop.

Very clean car! Only thing I would change on this car is the blue top, wish it was black.

T-Pain’s Rolls Royce Phantom Drop Head

This is T-Pain’s red Rolls Royce Phantom Drop Head. The Drop Head is one of the most luxurious rides money can buy. T-Pain has equipped this car with some custom 24″ wheels, color matched red to the car with chrome trim and a chrome lip.

A red phantom is very rare and it looks great. Love how he went with the brushed aluminum hood upgrade. Could have went a little bigger with the wheels but it still a good fitment. The meat on the tires will help protect the wheels when you hit a pot hole in this 7000 lb car.

I would expect a little more flash out of T-pain, but it is a beautiful car and nice set up.

Gucci Mane’s Yellow Ferrari 458 Italia

I dont know how Gucci Mane is able to get in the front of the waiting list to buy one of the hottest cars out right now. But he is – and he did. He also had it staggered with 21″ and 22″ custom Forgiato Opposti wheels. He had them painted black and yellow to match the car.

The stock 458 wheels are amazing, a sporty thin 5 spoke wheel that looks perfect. It is very hard to find an upgrade from those wheels. I wouldn’t call these wheels an upgrade but they do look good. The lines of the wheel really flow well with the lines on the body of the car.

The only criticism I have is the yellow pinstripe on the black lip is just too much going on. An all black lip would have been much better.

Rapper Richie Rich has a Porsche Cayenne

For those of you who dont know, Richie Rich is the rapper who sings the song “I Got Five On It”. He has a very nice car with his 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. But he has a set of 24s on it which kind of ruin the point of having a Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The wheels are 24″ GFG Biscayne wheels, the GFGs are Giovannas 3-piece line. They have a brush center with black lines and a black lip. These wheels would look good on a Bentley or Rolls Royce but not a Cayenne. California Wheels also painted the modlings, added exhaust and tail pipes, and did the engine tuning.

Great wheels and a Great car but they just dont go together.
