Aroldis Chapman is no stranger to roaming the streets in custom tricked-out rides, having shown off his fully-loaded USSV Rhino GX and sleek Rolls-Royce to YES Network during Spring Trainings over the last few years.

Add another whip to the stable for Chappy, who is likely to be rolling into New York for MLB Summer Camp in his brand new, custom-made six-wheel Jeep, courtesy of South Florida Jeeps.

TMZ gave a first glimpse into the Yankees closer’s new ride over the weekend, reporting that according to South Florida Jeeps owner Joseph Ghattas, the vehicle started as a cut-in-half Jeep and was custom-built from there – with features including a 600-horsepower twin-turbo diesel engine, red interior with Chapman’s “Cuban Missile” logo, and black Kevlar lining on the outside.

“The thing is an absolute monster,” Ghattas told The New York Post. “It’s huge, it’s loud and it’s just offensive to all the senses.”

The custom ride took about two months to complete and cost a whopping $150,000 – pocket change for a pitcher who, even in a pro-rated salary season, is set to make about $6 million this year.

And, apparently, Chapman is happy with the purchase.

“He doesn’t speak a whole lot of English, but he was smiles from ear-to-ear,” Ghattas told TMZ. “He said, ‘It’s (bleeping) awesome.'”
