Michel Jordan and his dream supercars. We admired them by watching The Last Dance, a docu-series broadcast on Netflix. Michael Jordan, n° 23 of Chicago Bulls won six NBA championships, two Olympic gold medals and the Triple Crown as Most Valuable Player obtained in three different competitions.
Jordan was much more than an athlete: a global star and testimonial for important companies. His huge heritage has allowed him every whim starting from that of buying unique and fascinating cars, collected in his private collection that sometimes are seen in the Netflix movie.
For the record, when he signed the 6 million per season contract for seven years with Bulls, he bought seven cars in one fell swoop, between Mercedes and Pontiac, for himself and his family members. In the MJ car fleet, valued at $ 10 million, there are for example a luxury Cadillac XLR, luxury roadster produced from 2003 to 2009 and a Corvette ZR1, one of the 220 models that the house made on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the model.
Jordan, thanks to the collaboration with Chevrolet, purchased an additional jewel: a Corvette C4 with the personalized Jump23 plate, his nickname.
Michael Jordan amazing garage
Another fundamental step to fill the garage occurred in 1985, when Michael Jordan launched the Air Jordan shoe brand, made by Nike.
Thanks to the fabulous contract, the fees grew dramatically and in the early 90s, MJ took the whim of buying a black Ferrari Testarossa. Later he wanted one with a red bodywork and also bought a 599 Gtb Fiorano from 320 thousand dollars.
Among Jordan's passions and supercars, the legendary cars of Sant'Agata Bolognese could not be missing. In fact, he owned a Lamborghini Gallardo, while last year he purchased a new Urus, the maxi sports SUV with a 650Cv biturbo V8 engine, a very popular car also by many other sports big names and show business personalities.
His collection was later enriched with an Aston Martin DB7 Volante, then a DB9 Volante and various Mercedes-Benzs, including a CL 65 in 2005, a SL 55 AMG and a $ 450,000 Slr McLaren 722 Edition. During his career he also owned several 911s (the 930, 964 and 993 series): moreover, he publicly declared that he was inspired by the Porsche icon in the creation of one of the Air Jordan shoe models.
It has never been photographed in the saddle but it seems that in the garage he also had a Ducati 999 while it makes you smile that in the midst of so many four-wheeled jewels, he often used a Toyota Land Cruiser for short trips with the family.
Finally, few know that Michael Jordan is the owner of a large Nissan dealership in North Carolina: practically a hobby for those who like him alone from Nike received, according to Forbes calculations, the figure of about 1.3 billion dollars.
