BIRTHDAY gift to himself?
As John Wall hit the big 3-0, he took to Instagram to show off a delicious new toy: a flame-red Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.
This muscle car packs an eye-watering 6.2-liter V8 engine that, in its most powerful “Redeye” configuration, can pump out up to 797 horses and 957Nm of torque. According to Dodge, it’s the fastest GT production car in the world. The Hellcat starts at $58,995. Top Gear Philippines, meanwhile, says that the Redeye version retails for P7,890,000.
But John Wall isn’t happy with just the stock.
Nope, he brought it to a customizer for some modifications, turning the originally all-silver car into an explosive red.
“It was a complete[ly] silver car,” said Ramin Niroomand, owner of SD Wrap, a California-based car customizer. “Chrome wheels. It had a lot of black accents.”
The crew did a “complete makeover” on both the exterior and the interior, putting a complete satin red wrap over the surface and adding in a blacked-out roof. The SD Wrap crew also added yellow accents and calipers.
“It’s a lot more aggressive. The satin makes the body lines pop,” continued Niroomand.
We can’t argue with the results.
Wall is a famous car nut. The Washington Wizards point guard’s garage includes a Bentley GT, Bentley Flying Spur, Rolls Royce Wraith, Ferrari 458 Spider, and Porsche Panamera — all customized. Wall has been recovering from a severe Achilles heel injury for more than a year, and sat out the Wizards’ bubble games in Orlando.
