Want to buy Jordan's Mercedes? For $429,998?


This car is being advertised on eBay as having been formerly owned by Michael Jordan.


Here's an interesting eBay listing -- a luxury Mercedes-Benz once owned by Michael Jordan is on sale for a "buy it now" price of....

$429,998.

According to the listing, the 2007 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren only has 962 miles on it and Jordan was its only individual owner.

UPDATE: Jordan told me and colleague Rick Bonnell Friday that he did own this car at one point but then traded it in "a couple of years ago" and can't understand why it keeps popping up all over the Internet like it's still his. Jordan laughed when saying this and added: Depends what they sell it for -- I've got a few more I might like to sell."


The car is a "722 edition" and is currently located somewhere in Houston with some sort of auto company there. So you're not going to be able to drive down South or Independence Boulevard and find it at one of the dealerships there.

It has a top speed of 209 mph, all sorts of gadgets and it looks pretty cool.

So if you have a spare $429,998 under the couch, you might want to check it out.

Scottie, are you stalking Mike to find some dirt or a scoop? Concentrate on sports, bud. What was the point other than to help buyers of exotic cars find a deal?

Jordan already selling off his assets to pay for his Bobcats losses? Wow!!!

Guess he will more company in time.
