Michael Jordan's Mercedez Benz SLR 722 is reportedly being sold on eBay. Posted by Ben Golliver I won't kid myself and I won't waste your time: it really doesn't matter what I write in this space, because directly below these words will appear multiple pictures of NBA Hall Of Famer Michael Jordan's 2007 Mercedes Benz SLR 722, which is currently being sold on eBay. michael-jordan-mercedes-benz Please re-attach your jaw to your face.  This car is absolutely sick and, if given the option, I would trade my entire car for just one of the Lambo doors on this bad boy. Are you kidding me? michael-jordan-mercedes-benz-2 Both pictures via eCarlist. Follow the link for many more. OK, it's time for a few specs if you haven't passed out on me yet. 
  • 5.5L SEFI AMG supercharged V8 engine. 
  • 209 MPH top speed. 
  • 19 inch alloy wheels. 
  • 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds. 
And here's the sales pitch from the seller...
You are looking at a very rare Mercedes Benz SLR 722 in mint condition. Clean 1 owner Carfax. This was the one and only Michael Jordan's 722 with title signed by him! This car is loaded with carbon fiber from the hood to the floor pans and wheel wells. Still has Mercedes Benz factory warranty till aug of 2011 or 50,000. Comes with all papers, books, keys, trickle charger, k40 radar, and SLR car cover. Owned by the one and only, Michael Jordan. 
Best of all, the Benz has less than 1,000 miles on it. Worst of all, the price tag is $429,000+, which is more expensive than most houses. But I'd probably prefer to live in this Mercedes compared to most houses, so it seems like a good value all things considered. Is there room for a half-bath?

Your an idiot, he is the athlete of the centry, with only Ali close to him. Basketball would be nowhere without him. He is an amazing man, and to call him a scumbag shows how much u actually appreciate sports.U think that these idiots who got snagged for murdering his dad, on his dads car phone was a pro hit 4 his gambling, well heres a gamble, id bet my bar that you are either single or have a brutal looking partner (prolly same sex) which, theres nothing wrong with, and that u know less about people and sports, than Tiger knows how to be discreet.
Jordan is a God amongst men, if u dont like him, who the hell do u look up to?

I wonder if he bought this with the money he didn't use to pay back his outrageous gambling debts to the Chicago mafia?  You know the degenerate gambling that got his dad killed and made the NBA tell him to leave the game for a season.....   Michae
l Jordan is just another scumbag with athletic talent or more than likely it was his althletic talent that made him into a scumbag.

An automatic?  It's pretty clear Jordan isn't much of a sportscar enthusiast.  It looks awesome but a Mercedes would be at the bottom of my exotic dream car wish list.     Saleen S7, Bugatti, McCalaren F1, Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini Gallardo, ViperGTS, Porsche GT, Ford GT40, Audi R8, Aston Martin-One77, Etc all better machines...   This one is mostly cool because Jordan owned it.  Alex Ovechkin has some awesome cars, he says he drives up to 150mph in the USA and 200mph in Russia.

Why would MJ want to give this one up? Did he get another 5 that he liked better or something?

Did anyone notice the less-than-ritzy townhome neighborhood these pics were taken in?  If I were selling a car of this caliber, I would at least park it in front of a custom home...

You have to consider that for most people who buy these cars it almost nothing.  Think about the average person, maybe making $50k a year or something, buying a $25K Ford, Buick, Chevy, etc -- they've spent 50% of a years gross income.  The people who buy cars like the SLR or Rolls Royce usually have incomes in the millions of dollars per year -- say they're making $10-12million per year, they've only paid  around 20% of a year's salary to buy $430,000 car.  Not really that extravegant when you look at it in those terms.
