Shaquille O'Neal Buys A Massive F-650 Pickup.
It's not easy finding a car that suits you best when you're 7ft 1in tall, or 2.16m in the metric system, and weigh 344lbs (156kg) like Shaquille O'Neal.
Luckily, there are still a few companies out there that make "Shaq-sized" vehicles, such as Ford, and their F-650 pickup truck.
Although their main purpose is assisting with heavy duty work, this big truck will probably get a more relaxed life in the hands of the former professional basketball player.
And with Shaq being Shaq, he announced the purchase in his own way, by posting a funny video on social media, sharing it with his 13.8 million fans.
Modified by F-650 specialist shop SuperTruck to the “Extreme” specification, the pictured behemoth started life as just another work truck. The devil, however, is in the details. Whereas a bog-standard Ford F-650 retails from $55,955, the Extreme treatment from SuperTruck hikes that price up to $109,750 at the very least.
Standard equipment is plentiful, but from the looks of it, Shaquille’s F-650 is loaded with optional extras. Rumored to have cost him a mind-boggling $124,150, here’s the only thing you need to know about the pickup: It’s four inches taller than the 45YO sportsman.
Can you imagine how much this thing weighs? Fret not, though, because the 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 underhood has plenty of pulling power. More to the point, it develops 725 pound-feet of torque. For reference, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon churns out 770 pound-feet, but only on 100+ octane racing fuel.
