The Magic Seagull is Spade's racing machine, built by him and his fellow circus performers during their time off. It was built in order to race in the F-Zero Grand Prix to keep their circus running through their financial troubles. The machine is sleek and slender, providing low resistance. However, the machine is rather large, and with its low grip strength, it is a danger to every racer, including Spade. Furthermore, there is nothing resembling a door, so if the machine explodes, Spade would go with it. Though it has a weak grip, it has an above-average body and a strong boost.

|Spade and his circus buddies built the Magic Seagull during their time off. The flat, streamlined form provides low wind resistance, allowing the booster to attain full power. Unfortunately, the grip strength is relatively low, and the width of the machine itself makes it quite dangerous. Furthermore, it has nothing resembling a door, and if the machine would explode, Spade would go with it.
Design and namesake
The Magic Seagull is a very flat, wide and streamlined racer. The overall height of the car is far lower than that of all the other cars. Likewise, it's width exceeds that of every other vehicle. Most of the body takes on three different triangular shaped areas. The two on the sides extend out to form wings while the middle one holds them together. The machine's body barely raises in elevation. There's a small black viewport situated near the front that cannot be looked into. The vehicle is primarily colored white with blue trim on the front edges. Its engines are arranged horizontally.
The Magic Seagull combines the words magic, the power of influencing the course of events by mysterious or supernatural means and seagull, the colloquial word for gull, a type of seabird.
The magic part of Magic Seagull relates to Spade's profession with magic. From the looks of the machine, it's clearly meant to resemble a seagull with its extended wings, pointed nose and white color.
