Rs 1,700 is the starting bid in the auction of the Mercedes-Benz S600 owned by the basketball legend Michael Jordan.

A 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 that was previously owned by the super-famous basketball player Michael Jordan is up for grabs on eBay for a ridiculously low starting bid of US $23 (about Rs 1,700). However, at the time of publishing, the auction had hit over US$ 160,000 just in its first few hours and the bidding is expected to climb far higher before the auction closes on August 23, 2020. This proves the skyrocketing value of Jordan’s items. In May, an autographed pair of shoes owned by Jordan was also up for sale at an auction and certainly, the price is the pair of footwear commanded wasn't anything ordinary.

What’s interesting about the navy blue coloured S-Class of Michael Jordan is that the car had made a cameo on the 2020 Netflix documentary “The Last Dance” with Jordan staying behind the wheels. The Mercedes has already covered 1,57,000 miles (252,803 km) on the odometer from day one and carries a very clean vehicle history report.

The 24-year-old Mercedes car features a range of mod-cons including air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and steering, heated seats, power sunroof, four-wheel disc brakes among many others. There are also some enticing memorabilia related to the basketball legend on the car that’s quite a big deal for die-hard Jordan fans.

"The cool thing about the car is when you power on the car phone, Jordan's name shows up on the dashboard," said Alex Manos, Beverly Hills Car Club owner in the listing.

Additionally, the S600 is also with its original title that was signed by Jordan and his wife.
