Calling all car and boxing fans — now is your chance to buy a sports car from the collection of none other than Muhammad Ali. A St. Louis, Missouri-based seller has put the 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce Series II that once belonged to the legendery boxer for sale on eBay. The car is currently listed for a buy-it-now price of $39,900 USD, or best offer.

Though originally bought by Ali, the car was later owned by Ali’s good friend Tim Shanahan. The story goes that Ali didn’t want to buy the Alfa Romeo at all, but instead wanted to purchase a Rolls-Royce. He and Shanahan visted a dealership in Lake Forest, Illinois, but as it didn’t have any Rolls-Royce cars in stock Ali purchased the Alfa Romeo. The car was a gift for his wife, Veronica Porché, however as she didn’t know how to drive a stick shift, the car went mostly unused. We first heard about the car going up for auction in 2018. One of Ali’s Rolls-Royces went up for auction in 2018 as well.

According to the eBay listing, the silver sports car now has 80,733 miles on it. Production on the convertible car ceased in 1981, so if you’re a fan of the style now may be only your only chance to get your hands on one.

Head over to Motoexotica to make a bet on Ali’s Alfa Romeo. Bidding will close on Wednesday at 7 p.m. EST. For more beautiful cars, see how this 19th century home turns classic cars into art.
