A 1998 Ferrari F355 Spider, said to have been owned by Shaquille O’Neal, is currently up for sale – and it’s a rather unique example.
That’s because the retired NBAer had the Italian supercar modified to free up more cabin space. As a result, the fuel tank was relocated at the front, the soft top was replaced by a unique tonneau cover and a pair of aftermarket seats with racing harnesses and ‘Superman’ logos embossed in the headrests were fitted.
Finished in silver over a black and silver interior, the F355 Spider has 19-inch Giovanna wheels, Brembo brakes, custom audio and, of course, a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V8 rated at 375 horsepower and 268 pound-feet (363 Nm) of torque which, in this case, is mated to a six-speed automated manual transmission. The Italian supercar can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 5 seconds and maxes out at 183 mph (295 km/h).
Listed on BringaTrailer at no reserve, the F355 Spider is located in Naperville, Illinois. It has only 7,400 miles (~11,900 km) on the odometer, with approximately 1,000 miles (1,600 km) added over the last two decades, and is accompanied by official letters from Ferrari North America, partial service records dating back to 2013, an accident-free report and a clean California title.
At the time of writing the highest bid was $35,000, and with the online auction ending on December 30, there is still enough time to make an offer.
