Most of us would break a sweat over spending that kind of money, but when you’re Bryant, making roughly 25 million for this season, $329,000 is chump change.

The Ferrari 459 Italia is powered by a 4.5 L V8 engine, and currently holds the world record for most power per liter in a naturally aspirated production car engine.  With an official 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration under 3.4 seconds, and a top speed over 325 km/h (202 mph), Kobe has quite the toy.
