The Black Eyed Peas star is spotted driving his Chevrolet Corvette.

Will.i.am has been pictured driving a new car around Los Angeles.

The red car, a 1958 Chevrolet Corvette, was tailor made for the Black Eyed Peas star at a luxury automotive restyling centre in California last year.

The company, West Coast Customs, said they believed it was "the best car we've ever done".

Will.i.am was responsible for customising the vintage car, which features in the Johnny Depp movie The Rum Diary.

"At one point in time this was an idea in my head. I did the rendering on my Photoshop," he said.

"It's amazing how with dedication, putting the right team together, you can take an idea and turn it into reality. This was in my head, on my laptop, and now it's behind me in my life."

In addition to his TV appearances, the producer-rapper is also preparing his latest solo album '#willpower'.

The album features the Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger-featuring single 'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' and 'Great Times'.
