If The Last Dance proved anything in 2020, it was the undeniable fame and influence of NBA star Michael Jordan, even decades after his legendary reign for the Chicago Bulls. Simply, if it was Michael Jordan’s, it is now selling and everyone is invited to bid on the latest collectable item – the iconic 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 Lorinser.
Offered up by Beverly Hills Car Club with a starting bid of $23 USD, the car will be reportedly sold with the original Michael Jordan-signed title while the vintage car phone also still retaining Jordan’s name when powering on. The famed athlete’s luxurious car collection was featured on the Netflix doco-series, including the Mercedes-Benz in question which features a metallic navy finish, custom rings, body kit and a power boost of almost 400 horsepower. Long story, short, Alex Manos of the Beverly Hills Car Club describes the car as “the Holy Grail of Michael Jordan memorabilia.”
