Muhammad Ali’s 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider at Auction

Muhammad Ali's 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider at Auction

A 1976 Alfa Romeo Spider that once belonged to the legendary Muhammad Ali is coming up for auction at Barrett-Jackson in the near future. The Italian-made classic car was purchased by Ali in Chicago, before he gifted the car to the current owner — who had been present at the purchase. The Spider has put over 80,000 miles on the clock in the last 42 years and comes in a silver color. This color is offset by a red coachline and a black interior. Arguably the stand out feature of the vehicle — and a frequent reminder of its famous owner — is the vanity plate reading “ALIBEE2” in reference to Ali’s famous quote. Take a look at the car in the gallery above. It is due to be sold at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas sale next month. In other automotive news, a rare 1981 BMW M1 is up for auction.
