Do you recall his neon yellow Lamborghini Urus, which was equipped with 25-inch rims and a widebody kit from 1016 Industries? For better or worse, that item stood out like a sore thumb. There was even one occasion when the Hornets point guard arrived at the Spectrum Center for a game while wearing his Urus in matching attire.
His blacked-out Rolls-Royce Cullinan, which was less vibrant but nonetheless commanding, was adorned with Novitec’s Overdose widebody kit, Vossen’s monstrous custom rims, and a one-of-a-kind interior.
To determine, what else? Aside from the tinted windows and enormous black wheels, the red Ferrari F8 Tributo he brought to the arena at least once matched his jacket and shoes, but the vehicle otherwise appeared to be standard.
Enough is enough? No? That’s right, because you have yet to observe anything! In terms of eccentricity, not a single one of those vehicles can even come close to matching this 2022 GMC Hummer EV Edition 1. Dreamworks Motorsports performed a customization on the vehicle in order to replicate the aesthetic of the Puma x LaMelo Ball MB.01, the exclusive basketball shoes worn by the Hornets guard.
Visually, the bespoke desert camouflage 3M fabric featuring vibrant orange topography lines will be the initial thing that catches the eye; this was inspired directly by the characteristics and colorway of the MB.01. Conversely, the door jambs were adorned with a coordinating color scheme, and upon closer inspection, one may discern a few of LaMelo’s personal tattoos situated thereon.
The DW Forged custom wheels? They have color-coordinated beadlock rings and HD fasteners and have a 24×12 profile. The Gladiator X-Comp tires should provide this electric off-road vehicle with exceptional traction on virtually any surface.
The interior is upholstered in orange leather and features Alcantara inserts with a LaFrance pattern, custom stitching, and LED insignia. The MB.01 shoe is also displayed in a glass showcase within the center console, where it is laid out leisurely on a miniature basketball court made of hardwood. The dashboard, steering wheel, and center compartment feature additional Alcantara, while gloss black accents provide much-needed contrast.Custom-lit ‘Rare’ logos, a power-sliding bedcover, under-seat and dashboard-mounted LED accent lighting, and multicolored underbody LEDs are additional features of this vehicle. At night, this object resembles an Unidentified Driving Object (UDO). In fact, I coined that term myself.Regarding LaMelo, the 2023-2024 NBA season commenced last week. In his first two contests, the Hornets star has accumulated an average of 17.5 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, and 9.5 assists per game in 32.0 minutes per game.
