Since joining the “Fast and Furious” movies, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has become a pretty big deal in the automotive community. No pun intended. In fact, The Rock looks to be coming back for the eighth entry in the automotive movie series.
Currently, he’s been filming for “Ballers,” an HBO exclusive show that follows the life of Spencer Strasmore, a financial manager for athletes in Miami. For filming purposes, he was sent a LaFerrari and GTA Spano for season two of the hit show, both in white.
A big #BALLERS THANK YOU to our international makers of this #GTASpano for shipping this truly exotic Spanish super car in all the way from Spain. Even though my character can't fit (literally) in this beauty, as our show's Executive Producer I'll take full credit for featuring her properly. ? We thank you again.. a beautiful super car. #BALLERS #Season2 #Miami #BallOut #DaddyStillDontFit
Unfortunately, The Rock is a pretty big guy. When he posted photos of himself and the cars on Instagram, he noted that he can’t even fit into the cars. But, there are plenty of big trucks that he could fit into, like a Ford Raptor or Terradyne Gurkha.
“She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean – she was the best damn woman that I ever seen…” 950 horsepower. Less than 25 made (matte white) in the world. Selling on the streets for $3-5 million. The great benefit of producing and starring in @HBO’s #BALLERS is that I can admire, touch and play with this #LaFerrari which is one of the most beautifully engineered and sought after exotic cars in the world. The drawback…? Daddy don’t fit in it. #BALLERS #OnSet #Season2 #SilverbackProblems Ball out. ?? A photo posted by therock (@therock) on
What do you guys think about the choice of cars? For me, it’s nice to see the GTA Spano getting some well-deserved love. As for the LaFerrari, no one can complain about that choice.
Be sure to stay up-to-date with “Ballers” to learn when season two will be premiering.
