Kobe Bryant superfan trying to sell tricked-out ‘Kobe24Lambo’ for $170,000
A Kobe Bryant superfan has an incredible Lamborghini for sale.
If you’ve got $170,000 to spend and are a die-hard Bryant and Lakers fan, then this car is certainly for you.
Via TMZ Sports:
Joe Carbonara tells TMZ Sports he was so devastated after Kobe and his daughter, Gianna, died in a helicopter crash … he wanted to honor them with his 2015 Lamborghini Huracan.
We’re told the shop’s owner, Steve Zielinski, loved the idea of the project so much … he spent TWO FULL DAYS wrapping it in Lakers purple and gold vinyl.
“I had to make sure it was good and not overdone,” Zielinski tells us. “And, we didn’t charge for it.”
The results of the work were impressive … Kobe’s numbers, pictures of Bryant and Gigi, the Mamba’s logo and even the names of all nine crash victims are featured on the ride.
In fact, the job was so well done … the Lambo — now dubbed the Kobe24Lambo — gained national attention when it was seen driving around NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago.
Kobe Bryant tributes will continue for a while after his tragic death, as they should. The basketball community will make it a point to never forget Bryant’s legacy both as a player and father. He was an idol to a whole generation of people. Kobe will live on forever.
In 1,346 career games for the Lakers, Bryant cemented himself as one of the greatest Lakers of all time. He finished with career averages of 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
Bryant was an 18-time All-Star, two-time scoring champion, 15-time All-NBA team member, two-time Finals MVP and five-time champion with the Purple and Gold.
The Lakers retired Bryant’s No. 8 and 24 jerseys last year. Now, the late NBA legend is set to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer as part of a loaded class of 2020. There will never be anybody else quite like Kobe Bryant, that’s for certain.
