Blake Wilkey needs no introduction as he was the infamous Shreddy professional that took his VW Land Shark to the streets of San Diego. Millions of views, 26 counts of wreckless driving, jail time and 2 years wiser – he decided to unleash Megalodon on the city of Las Vegas. Since Wilkey didn’t want more fines and other legal wrangling he went with more permitted approach. Either way, Wilkey ripped through Sin City with Megalodon.

When asked about Megalodon’s build, Wilkey mentioned “it started as a Penhall class 5 chassis with a beam front end and had some major re-construction. Kibbetech put a front center mount A-arm kit on it and then new rear arms and a V8 with a Mendeola 4 speed sequential. Shortly after I acquired the car I started making my own changes to have it fit my personality better! Started off by fitting a FiberwerX bug body on it, redoing the King shocks black and gold, doing some aluminum work, custom PRP seats, new KC Hilites Pro6 and FLEX LED, full Rockford Fosgate stereo system, and much more.”
