Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons turned 23 over the weekend and to celebrate he gifted himself a custom, sky-blue Ferrari. The new whip takes its inspiration from Travis Scott’s “Cactus Jack” Air Jordan 4. The Australian point-guard posted a picture of the vehicle along with a shot of the shoe for comparison yesterday.

Scott’s Jordan was inspired by the colors of former NFL franchise the Houston Oilers. This Jordan 4 featured a light blue suede upper with black and red detailing on the lace cage, laces, tongue, heel tab, and lining. Similarly, Simmons’ custom Ferrari is done up in a light blue, with red detailing on the interior and wheels.
Although it might seem like an extravagant purchase for a 23-year-old, Simmons just signed a $170 million, five-year contract extension with the 76ers.
