With you, Travis Scott. The prolific rapper is a declared lover of cars and all the culture that surrounds them. So much so that, over the years, he has put together a truly outstanding collection. Next, we dive into a museum customization.
Travis Scott He is, without a doubt, one of the most influential and disruptive rappers today. Born in Houston, Texasunder the name of Jacques Berman Webster IIthe talented musician has been making waves with his rhymes since his “official” emergence in 2012 with the Owl Pharaoh mixtape.
Scott, who has stated the direct influence of artists such as Kanye West, Tame Impala y The Wailers -Bob Marley’s exquisite band-, has managed to find the right tone on their albums that oscillate between a certain melancholy and a stripped-down urban cool style.
After leaving his native Texas, Travis oscillated between the two cultural and industrial capitals of the United States: New York and Los Angeles. Hip-Hop critics have known how to highlight their albums in a timely manner Rodeo (2015), Birds in the Trap sing McKnight (2016) and the renowned ASTROWORLD (2018). The latter led him to tour the entire world, making his bars and rhymes known around the scene globally.
At the same time, Scott is a versatile artist of the 21st century: he is not “only” concerned with his musical production. He is also an influence on fashion and video games, so popular in his home nation. For example, the collaboration he made with Fortnite, a video game developed by the company, is of a high scale. Epic Games.
However, Travis has a facet as a collector. He is a declared lover, since he was a child, of cars and all the culture that surrounds them. He is a connoisseur of models, brands, designs and benefits.
It is that cars, apart from exuberance and consumption, are pieces of style that demonstrate the personality that each one of us has in the world. They are a form of expression, it is not the same Corvette Stingray dated 1963 than a 2020 Aston Martin Vanquish.
Scott is a Lamborghini fan. And not just any fan. He is the carrier of the most avant-garde car of the Italian house. It is, nothing more and nothing less, than the “supercar” Lamborghini Aventador. The supercar category is made up of only a few cars around the world, the Aventador it’s in her
Travis has decided to intervene. It has entered the famous Californian workshop West Coast Customs to intervene your body. The result is up to the Italian manufacturer. Scott, to honor his identity and his African-American roots, made the decision to paint the entire Aventador brown.
In turn, the rapper said -about this claim of a racial nature- that historically luxury items were never intended for citizens, he and his family, and that this gesture of intervening a supercar shows that things have changed in the industry and in the market.
Let’s take a look at some of the features Aventador. It has a 12-cylinder V-shaped central longitudinal engine with 48 direct injection valves. This allows you a truly dreamlike maximum power: 700 hp at 8,250 rpm. On the other hand, its maximum torque marks it at 690 Nm. All this power is managed by a 7-speed automatic transmission with sequential mode.
