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. The Alfa Romeo spider veloce series ii was formerly owned by the legendary boxer whoch he later gave to a friend Tim Shanahan.
they went to a dealership to purchase a new Rolls-Royce – Ali was a sucker for the Rolls-Royce, apparently – while the legendary boxer lived in Chicago.
The pair headed to European Imports in Lake Forest, Illinois, in the hopes of getting a Kelly Green Corniche and possibly a Mercedes-Benz SL for Veronica Porché, Ali’s wife.
When they got to the dealership, though, Ali was disappointed to learn that there were no SLs so the Alfa Romeo was suggested as an alternative. Ali ended up buying the thing but upon getting home, he was hit by another unforeseen hiccup. Veronica did not know how to drive the car’s stick shift and couldn’t be bothered to learn how.
