Shaquille O’Neal’s Custom 1998 Ferrari F355 Spider is up for auction



At 7’1 ″ and 324 pounds, Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most impressive figures ever to adorn a basketball court. As such, it̵

7;s no easy feat to fit in a superb supercar – unless of course the aforementioned quad bike is adapted, such as Diesel’s 1998 Ferrari F355 Spider, which is currently up for auction.

The Prancing Horse has been adjusted to suit Big Aristotle himself and can now accommodate the toughest drivers. To free up space, the soft top was cut off and replaced with a custom tonneau cover, while the factory’s fuel tank was replaced with a front-mounted tank to give the car more legroom.

The custom two-tone interior in black and silver has also been modified with racing harnesses and aftermarket seats that carry Superman emblems on the headrests. For those who may not remember, Shaq embraced the nickname Superman at the height of his career, which happened to be around the same time as Ferrari released the F355.

Elsewhere, Spider features a bespoke sound system that sees Alpine drivers and tweeters in the tonneau cover and door panels, so you can blow up some of Shaq’s hip-hop hits from his four studio albums. Other aftermarket upgrades include a Formula 1-inspired gearbox and Pirelli P Zero tires fitted with silver 19-inch Giovanna Luxury wheels for a bit of pizza.

Apart from these custom details, many of Spider’s original stock details remain. The car has a classic svelte silhouette and Argento Nürburgring silver paint. It also has a 3.5-liter V8 engine that can throw out 375 horsepower and 268 ft lbs of torque. Also, it appears to be in excellent condition and has only 7400 miles on the ticker.

While the Spider does not come with a certificate to confirm Shaq as the previous owner, the NBA star can be seen showing his “eternal convertible” in an episode of the 90’s MTV Cribs. At the 17-minute mark, Shaq shows Ferrari and explains how he is able to drive this convertible and others by removing the tops for good.

Shaq’s Ferrari is listed on the Bring-a-Trailer without reserve. The current bid is $ 50,000 at the time of writing, with only one day left before bidding ends.
