MLB Star Hector Olivera Post-Defection Perfection ... $50k To Pimp Out Maybach

EXCLUSIVE

Braves slugger Hector Olivera just came to America a year ago, but he's clearly exercising his freedom of swag ... dropping $50k to pimp out his 2016 Maybach.

Hector signed a 6 year, $62 million deal earlier this year, and dropped  a chunk on the ride. But standard features weren't enough. He went to the Auto Firm in Miami to make it truly special.

Auto Firm boss, Alex Vega, says he added red and black Avorza "Honeycomb" leather, AV9 custom 23 inch wheels, plus state-of-the-art navigation and rear entertainment systems.

FYI -- the Maybach set Hector back $200k, so there's only one thing we can say about spending an extra $50k just to make it your own ...

God Bless America.
