The best player in the world's prancing horse is up for sale.
When you think of soccer stars (or footballers, as most of the world calls them), people like David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo likely come to mind. These superstars have a global following that transcends the game itself, and they tend to use their money and influence to buy some pretty cool things. Beckham recently bought a car company and Cristiano, well, he gets a lot of nice things. He spent $9 million on the Bugatti Centodieci and has a collection that includes other Bugattis, Ferraris, and more. But it's not only the most famous players that buy nice toys. Robert Lewandowski, who was recently crowned the best striker in the world (but robbed of the Ballon d'Or), commissioned this special Ferrari 488 Spider, and now it's for sale.
Listed on eBay in Germany but for sale in Poland, the car is owned by someone who bought it directly from the soccer star. According to this person, the car was configured by Lewandowski who chose to add black stripes and a small registration plate. To ensure that future potential buyers can verify its providence, the car has been kept on its original plates and ownership documents still show the baller's name. The rev counter is white to match the Bianco Avus 100 paint, while yellow brake calipers hide behind 20-inch forged rims. Plenty of carbon fiber is fitted too, including on the steering wheel.
As a 2018 model, Lewandowski likely got bored and possibly upgraded to a Ferrari F8 Spider. Only 6,150 kilometers (3,821 miles) have been covered in the car and the factory warranty is in place until 21 September 2022 while the remainder of the seven-year service package is also still in place. The car was reportedly housed in a garage all its life, which adds further credibility to the assumption that this car is in perfect nick. In fact, if you're going to buy a used supercar, getting one from a footballer who has likely only ever used it to cruise to training and back is probably a great idea. Unfortunately, its provenance means that bids could go very high. At the time of writing, the highest bid was €50,500 ($57,165), which is obviously way less than the seller wants. If you're interested, you have until 14:00 EST on December 10 to make a bid.
