Michael Jordan’s Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition is now for sale with just 1,000 miles on board.
A Houston, Texas, dealer sells the car the NBA star drove 20 years ago. The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition has been on sale for months. A single day passed between the auction on which no owner was found. The car is back on the market and the dealer believes the third time should be good luck.
The dealer has listed the car Ebay. The total reached $ 243,600 and the “game” is still on. It’s $ 40,000 above the final bid from the previous auction that closed on January 3rdapprox. The dealer’s experts estimated it should bring in $ 695,750. Hence the level it has reached is far from what you would expect. The celebrity factor is probably half the advertised price.
Here are the professionals it comes with. It’s a classic and a rarity. And it only traveled a little over 1,600 kilometers. So we know for sure that Michael Jordan never drove a lot.
The car runs on the 5.5-liter AMG Supercharged V8 engine paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission. It is able to reach 100 km / h in 3.6 seconds from a standing start. Its top speed is 338 km / h.
