Red Sox Prospect Drops $45k to Customize Car

I don’t normally get excited about the cars athletes drive, but when they go out of their way to make their ride something Bruce Wayne would enjoy…color me intrigued.

Boston Red Sox prospect Yoan Moncada just dropped $45,000 (of his $31 million deal!) to customize his Avorza BMW i8 to resemble something that would be seen cruising the streets of Gotham City.

Something tells me the late George Barris would be proud.

The custom job, which includes red accents that glow at night, was done by Alex Vega, owner and operator of The Auto Firm near Miami. Vega has done work for Moncada’s fellow Red Sox Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez.

Not. Too. Shabby.
