Bieber and Friedlinghaus go way back, as the pop superstar went to him last year to transform his Cadillac CTS-V into a matte black "batmobile" -- the yin to his chrome Fisker's yang. So when the Biebs needed a family-friendly SUV version fit for an international heartthrob, he knew there was only one man for the job.
"This thing is bananas!" Bieber said when he first saw the finished product.
Friedlinghaus, perhaps best known for the MTV pop-culture phenomenon Pimp My Ride, founded West Coast Customs in 1993, quickly turning it into the world's premiere vehicle modification shop. The show features the process behind Friedlinghaus' unique builds from concept to completion.
An all-new episode of West Coast Customs airs Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. PST / 10 p.m. EST on Fox Sports 2.
