    Shaqs XXL Gallardo

    FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. - Basketball great Shaquille O'Neal got special treatment for his Lamborghini Gallardo - a stretched version thanks to Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, a supplier for such corporations as the Boeing Company and PPG Aerospace Glass. The longer Lambo has 12 inches added through the middle, surely a relief for the 7-foot-1-inch athlete.

    The Gallardo received custom extended doors, roof and side windows. The company says it strove to maintain the car's "visual integrity" with the changes. Glass fabrication was a particular challenge, the company said. "We relied on our aerospace and coachworks divisions to make sure Shaq could fit in the car, but the naked eye could not detect any differences from the original Gallardo," Gaffoglio CEO George Gaffoglio said.

    What this means to you: Great minds working together help Shaq fit in his luxury car. Two points!

    You should see 997 turbo gathering today in front of "Bosanac"...

    Turbo seems to be popular among true low lifes here.... Such a shame...

    Re: Shaqs XXL Gallardo

    With these doors it must be a PITA in a crowded parking lot...

    Re: Shaqs XXL Gallardo

    it really messed up the proportion!

    Re: Shaqs XXL Gallardo

    I guess you guys can't understand just how bad it sucks to be a tall car enthusiast.

    Or, are you just jealous of how much cash some fit-frustrated car guys can spend?

    Re: Shaqs XXL Gallardo

    Look, atleast he can enjoy the car now.....whats wrong with that who cares how it looks, your not buying it

    It is not a matter of taste. It is a matter of not fitting inside your dream car.
    I believe they even chopped of the roof of his 360 modena so that he could fit it in. Apparently his mother had bought it for him.
