Seems fitting that Shaq finally got himself a huge lifted truck considering he hovers around seven feet tall (Google says he’s 7’1). Like another very tall star that we recently featured, The Rock, Shaq also added some different rims and a few other upgrades. I’m personally not a fan of this truck and think it could have been done much more tastefully if he was going for an all white look. I’d start by ditching the chrome rims, but that’s just me and I didn’t buy the truck so my opinion doesn’t mean much. Still, the new Ford F-Series trucks are gorgeous and I can’t help but wish he’d had gone about customizing this the right way!
What happens when you are over 7 feet tall but what to drive fancy little sports cars? You obviously just make them longer! Shaquille O’Neal is the master at this, famously stretching his Lamborghini Gallardo 12-inches so he could fit into it, and now stretching his new 3-wheeled Polaris Slingshot as well! Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!
Shaq’s 2011 Porsche Panamera was recently up for sale on eBay. The Panamera has a few customizations from West Coast Customs including, Modulare Wheels and a little extra leg room (of course). You can check out the video below to get a better look at the car and take a look at all the details here. Had anyone seen Shaq with this Panamera before? We wish we would have spotted him behind the wheel!
MTV2 has recently teamed up with DUB Magazine to bring you a car culture lifestyle series called “The Dub Magazine Project”. Their first project was definitely a tall order but nothing was going to stop them from making one celebrities dream a reality. Most people don’t have to think twice about whether or not they’ll fit into a car but for 7′ 1″, 325 pound Shaquille O’Neal things are a little more complicated. Find out what the guys on “The DUB Magazine Project” had to go through to make Shaq’s Ford Mustang convertible fit just right.
Check out the trailer for the show here and the full first episode with the unveiling of Shaq’s new ride here.
