Shaq's Gallardo

Shaq is one of the most recognized athletes in the world, with multiple world championships, a few rap albums, Kazaam, and a reservist police officer badge. OK, Kazaam was terrible, but the man is one Hell of an athlete, and with all the money he has, Shaq has almost everything you could possibly imagine. The only thing Shaq has had some issues with are cars, with his 7' 1", 350 lb. frame not able to fit in anything but large SUVs and limousines.

But hey, when you're filthy rich, there really are no obstacles for you when there are suppliers like Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, who took Shaq's Lamborghini Gallardo and stretched it a full twelve inches. Gaffoglio, which is a supplier for companies like Boeing Company and PPG Aerospace Glass, used its aerospace expertise to make a potentially awkward project turn out like a work of art.

Gaffoglio strived to keep the Gallardo's beautiful lines and supercar proportions, and when looking above at the final result, we think they did an outstanding job. Now if you're Shaq, you can dunk over Yao Ming, and have your Gallardo too.

      I doubt that Shaq hit's the twisties. He probably just wants a fast sports car. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone that owns a sports car auto crosses.

      Are we supposed to feel sorry for him? I feel bad for the Lambo.

      looking out of the windshield of that thing must be like driving while looking through binoculars.

      It will be the most stylish car in the KFC parking lot!

      And now that his team has been swept out of the playoffs, he'll have plenty of down time to drive that thing around.

      Gaffoglio Metalcrafters has long been a concept car manufacturer, most notably for Chrysler and later Daimler-Chrysler. They were doing fully functional concept cars (rollers) for Chrysler in the early 90s, when other manufacturers were creating static sculpture.

      I also feel bad for the Lambo. Some of Shaq's other cars have also see this same sort of treatment.
