Okay, listen, if you’ve ever heard of a little sport called basketball, then you have no doubt heard of a certain player that goes by the name of Michael Jordan. Yes, the one and the only, Michael Jordan. Turns out, this very same dribbling, dunking, tongue-hanging-out, Space Jam star who has an elite line of basketball shoes himself has an equally impressive vehicle that is currently on sale on eBay. Oh yeah, this car also happens to be the hot, limited edition Mercedes SLR 722. Wait, yeah, perfection has raised its hand to say hello.
The SLR 722 Edition is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 supercharged engine that delivers 640 Hp and 820 NM of torque. The result is an impressive 0 to 60 mph time of 3.6 seconds, a 0 -124 mph time of 10.2 seconds, and a 0 to 186 mph time of 28.0 seconds. Top speed is 209 mph.
Modifications made to the car include: 19-inch light-alloy wheels, modified suspensions, with a stiffer damper setup and 10 mm (0.39 in) lower ride height introduced for improved handling, larger 390 mm (15 in) diameter front brakes and a revised front air dam and rear diffuser, red "722" badge, hearkening back to the original 722 racer, and slightly different taillights and headlamps.
The former NBA star rocket is being sold by A&M Auto Export for about $50,000 less than what the base SLR 722 sold for back in 2007. But at $429,998, this vehicle is more than worth it considering all of the modifications that were added plus the low mileage (odometer reads 962 miles). That, and the fact that the man himself had to sign the title for the vehicle. A rare and beautiful car and an autograph.
