Shaq Supersizes His Lambo
At 7'1", Shaquille O'Neal is probably the tallest customer Lamborghini has ever had -- to the point that his test drive probably wasn't the most productive thing. Enter Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, who do fun stuff like help automakers with their concept cars, engineer and produce aerospace-quality glass, and do custom coachwork, stretching cars like the HUMMER limos we like to make fun of. Or, in this case, Shaq's Lamborghini Gallardo.
Gaffoglio stated that it was important to the company to keep the design consistent with stock Gallardos, so in extending the roof, doors and side windows, the original design of the vehicle played an important role. Extending the windows proved to be the trickiest bit, necessitating imput from the aerospace division in addition to coachworks expertise in order to get it right.
So, did they succeed? As we look at the photo above and try to figure out whether it's stock or stretched, we certainly think so.
