After being traded from the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns in 2019, OBJ really made a commitment to the team, so much so that he had his luxury. SUV packaged to measure to better represent the colors of its new team.
The car was handed over to Dreamworks Motorsports, the same company that modified Beckham Jr’s Lamborghini Urus, and as you can see it looks considerably more dynamic than before – when it was black.
Let’s take a look at a few of the mods, starting with these custom painted 26 inch Forgiato wheels with floating Rolls-Royce center caps. The glossy black aesthetic creates a powerful contrast thanks to those orange center caps, not to mention the orange brake calipers.
Then you have the custom Dawg Pound Orange wrap, matching the Browns’ helmets and various uniform accents – the wrap works pretty well from a visual standpoint, helped mostly by any visible dark surfaces like tinted windows and the blackened. outside the rear lights.
There’s plenty of orange inside, too, along with a unique headliner and custom sound system, with the subwoofers encased in a makeshift Rolls-Royce grille.
Now we come to the Resistance Piece, a chrome OBJ figure performing “The Catch”, replacing the car’s existing Spirit of Ecstasy sculpture.
If you are wondering what “The Catch” is, let me explain, because it is much more meaningful than just a capture done by a wide receiver. In a Sunday night football game against the Dallas Cowboys in 2014, OBJ caught the ball with one hand, fully extended, using less fingertip surface than it would take to unlock a smartphone. It’s one of the biggest captures in NFL history.
Of course, Beckham Jr wore an NY Giants uniform at the time, and this sculpture has orange accents while the Giants’ number font is white for home uniforms and red for road jerseys. So in a way the custom carving makes it look like he made this capture in a Browns uniform, but now we’re just nitpicking.
