Giancarlo Perlas July 28, 2023

Once again, the spotlight shines on a piece of NBA history as Michael Jordan’s prized possession, the 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 Lorinser, makes its way to the market. This luxurious W140 S-Klasse coupe, owned by the basketball legend from 1995 to 2003, is creating a buzz with an unbelievable asking price that pays homage to Jordan’s iconic jersey number. It should be remembered that this car has been in auction sites for the past two years with no buyer in sight. However, it may finally find a new owner this time with its jaw-dropping price of $23.

A Rare Gem with Unmatched Value

According to Whatnot, the livestream shopping platform responsible for the sale, this sleek metallic navy blue beauty, which appears almost black, boasts an estimated value of $120,000. The dark gray leather seats and the car phone that still displays Jordan’s name add a nostalgic touch to this collector’s dream.

A Unique Auction Like No Other

As part of this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention held in Chicago, Jordan’s S600 Lorinser is just one of the sought-after memorabilia up for grabs at the incredible price of $23. Prospective buyers are instructed to participate through the Whatnot app and join the drop.

There’s a twist though. Instead of a traditional auction, the platform will select a lucky winner who gets the chance to make the astonishing $23 transaction.

A Star on the Silver Screen

Despite of the seemingly lack of interest from buyers over the past couple of years, the S600 Lorinser holds a special place in basketball history. It made an appearance in the widely acclaimed documentary series “The Last Dance,” further cementing its status as one of Jordan’s most recognizable cars.

As a testament to his enduring legacy, Michael Jordan’s memorabilia has consistently sold for millions, with his game-worn jersey from the 1998 NBA Finals fetching a record-breaking $10.1 million last September.

A Journey Through Ownership

Interestingly, this luxury vehicle has had quite a journey through the market. Previously, it was sold for an impressive $202,200 on eBay, only to be listed again on the prestigious Bring a Trailer auction site.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the car remained available for purchase. More recently, it was listed on Beverly Hills Car Club’s official website with an asking price of $135,000.

An Unprecedented Opportunity

Despite its rich history and value, Jordan’s S-Class Lorinser has had its challenges finding the perfect buyer. However, the current asking price of $23 is indeed an unprecedented opportunity for car enthusiasts and fans of the basketball legend alike.

With such an affordable price, Whatnot is sure to attract a flurry of interested buyers or enterprising individuals eager to own a piece of NBA history.
