Known for his passion for cars and unique customization needs, Shaq's latest ride was brought to life by the skilled team at Forbes Performance, the same company that has already crafted three Chargers for the legendary basketball player this year alone.
Standing tall in a deep black finish adorned with striking red accents, Shaq's custom Charger demands attention on the road. Notable features include eye-catching red LED daytime running lights, red undercarriage lights, an illuminated SRT badge, and red brake calipers. For added flair, the headlights even boast green lights that project graphics on the ground, making for a captivating sight.
An ode to his illustrious basketball career, a prominent #34 decal graces the hood—a nod to the number he wore during his time with the Los Angeles Lakers. The rear of the Charger showcases a distinctive diffuser, also finished in black, and a beloved Shaq face meme, capturing an iconic moment from his appearance on the popular YouTube show, Hot Ones.
But don't let the playful exterior fool you; beneath the hood lurks an absolute beast. The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, unleashing an awe-inspiring 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque in its Redeye Widebody configuration. Rumors suggest that Shaq's ride might even be the Jailbreak model, which boosts the power to an astonishing 807 horsepower.
As more automakers shift their focus toward electric vehicles, Dodge's muscle car era is coming to a close. To mark this bittersweet moment, Dodge has released several limited edition models, culminating in the Demon 170.
As a passionate gearhead and true connoisseur of muscle cars, Shaq is embracing these limited edition Chargers while he still can. Fully aware that the days of big V8 engines are numbered, he is making the most of this time, indulging in his love for powerful vehicles that roar on the roads.
With his latest customized Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, Shaquille O'Neal continues to make a statement not only on the basketball court but also on the streets, proving that even in a world of electric vehicles and modern innovations, the allure of muscle cars still captures the hearts of true car enthusiasts like him.
