Every big guy requires a big truck for himself. An example would be the NBA all-star, Shaquille O'Neal, who just bought himself a massive Ford F-650 Extreme from Wade Ford in Georgia. The seven-foot celebrity already picked up his new custom creation vehicle in Georgia.
Shaq currently stands at 7 feet and 1 inch, which makes him have a hard time finding an appropriately sized vehicle that's perfect for his size. In order to solve that problem, he personally went to SuperTruck in Augusta, Georgia and Wade Ford in Smyrna, Georgia to order a massive F-650.
The Ford F-650 Extreme was custom created by Wade Ford and truck builder SuperTruck exactly to the NBA superstar's likings. Wade Ford only builds a few of these custom rigs each year, and though the vehicle is based on a standard F-650, it will have all the latest technologies and features that are found on mainstream trucks.
The truck has been equipped with features such as Bluetooth, HD Radio, an infotainment system with full navigation, and heated leather seats. The interior is also well-equipped with many features.
Shaq's new F-650 Extreme is powered by a 6.7-liter Powerstroke diesel V8 engine that can produce 330 hp (246 kilowatts) and 750 lb-ft of torque (1,016 Newton-meters), just enough to power this beast. The standard F-650's has a starting price of $55,955 and SuperTruck claims that custom rigs like this mostly cost around $109,750.
According to Motor Authority, Shaquille O'Neal's new Extreme ride is more expensive costing around $124,150 since it had various options and customization. In addition, the truck is 4 inches taller than the 45YO sportsman.
The truck is considerably a one-of-a-kind truck for a one-of-a-kind personality. Shaq didn't forget to thank Wade Ford and the SuperTruck guys by posting on Twitter, saying "Thanks Ford for making big trucks for big guys."
