LA Dodger’s Outfielder Yasiel Puig Goes Super-Custom on His Range: Better Watch Out

He's quite fresh in the Major League, but started off with a big, seven-year contract with the Dodgers. Since we’re looking at a $43 million deal, Yasiel Puig is safe to take the proper care of his driveway already. The weapon of choice with the 24-year old Cuban baseball player is the all-star Ranger Rover, of course. The luxury SUV just received some serious upgrades, which is kind of dangerous judging by the fellow’s driving records.

His MLB debut was less than two years ago, yet Puig is already swinging with the rich Cubans in LA. As opposed to his fellows, however, the time for Lamborghini and Ferrari has not come yet. Instead, a good, old Rover will always do the job. That is what his daily driver is so he figured taking the custom-step was only natural.

What exactly are we looking at? Well, there’s this Lumma body kit that offers the proper pose to the already good looking luxury SUV. The exterior was color keyed while the black accents offer the right nuances for a bad-boy feeling. Wheels were changed with a nice pair of custom Avorza forged rims and there’s most likely some refresh going on in the interior as well.

Now, according to the boys at Alex Varga’s Miami-based auto shop, the Range was properly supercharged which could be a problem for the young baseball player who had some problems with the law in the past.

First, he was charged with reckless driving and speeding in Chattanooga, Tennessee in April 2013, while doing 97 mph (156 km/h) in a 50 mph (80 km/h) area. The charges were later dismissed after he served 12 hours of community service.

But later that year, Puig once again pushed the pedal to the metal. It was December 28th, when he got another reckless driving charge for doing 110 mph (180 km/h) in a 70 mph (110 km/h) zone in Naples, Florida. He got away with it this time too, after the State of Florida concluded that there was insufficient evidence to support the charge.
