Default Jalopnik:: For Sale: Michael Jordan's $430,000 Mercedes McLaren

YOU TO COULD OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!

Quote:
Michael Jordan bought a 2007 Mercedes McLaren SLR 722? That's one of the best cars ever made. Nice move, M.J.

Wait, he's selling it after only driving it 962 miles? Seriously? You give me hope, Michael, and then you take it all away.

So, the McLaren can be yours for $430,000, which is a little dear for that brand even if the wheels were spun for fewer than a thousand miles (considering it cost around $475,000 new). The sellers are clearly factoring in the whole "Michael Jordan owned this car" addition.

The specs? Even three years later, this is one of the fastest things in the world. It has a 5 1/2-liter V8, it'll go from zero to just over 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, it runs with 640 horsepower and it will reach 209 miles an hour; and the rear-wheel driven monster is loaded with all sorts of carbon fiber bits so it's light as a feather in comparison to other supercars.

Also, Michael Jordan drove it. For a few hundred miles, at least.

for that price I'd buy a GTR, 911 GT2 RS and a ZR-1, I could care less if Michael Jordan drove it around the block a few times.

My dad's 300 was previously owned by a professional athlete.

But there's clearly better cars out there for that price.
