Shaquille O’Neal will be celebrating his 50th birthday in style this weekend. The NBA legend wants to show that he is feeling as young as ever. That’s why he’s celebrating with an impressive new ride.

The basketball hall of famer will celebrate his birthday on March 6. Shaq showed off the new car and said he is hoping it will help him have the best birthday yet.

TMZ had plenty of pics and videos of Shaq’s new vehicle. It’s an 800 horsepower custom Dodge Charger Hellcat. The silver and red paint job is fully custom. It includes a “Diesel Dog Mafia” logo on the hood.

Shaq referenced Inside the NBA co-host Charles Barkley when he described his happiness. O’Neal said he felt like Sir Charles eating a piece of chocolate cake. The two have always had a friendly back-and-forth on television.

Shaq gave thanks to several organizations and car clubs who helped put the new ride together. Swaggpack Shaq, Atlanta Street Xecs, and Padgett Motor Sports all received a shoutout from the big man. O’Neal said he was a member of the best car club ever.

The world will be wishing Shaq a happy birthday this weekend. Big Diesel is one of the most beloved figures in all of sports. Hopefully he drives safely in his impressive new whip.
