Michael Jordan's 1996 Mercedes S600 Lorinser, seen in 'The Last Dance', is up for auction
Beverly Hills Car Club is no stranger to celebrity cars. They've sold models owned by Snoop Dogg and from James Bond movies. Now, they have a Mercedes owned by Michael Jordan up for auction.
Inside the 135,000-square-foot facility sits the 1996 Mercedes S600 Lorinser that was featured in "The Last Dance", the 10-part ESPN documentary about the 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls team. The car is up for auction on eBay until Sunday at midday.
The Metallic Navy Deep Blue S600 Lorinser was originally titled to Michael Jordan and his then-wife Juanita (they were married up until 2002). The title is signed by both of them on the back.
Its cabin is gray leather and it features wood accents on the doors, center console, dashboard, and steering wheel. The car came standard with a dual airbags when it was new - a true luxury feature at the time. It is also equipped with air conditioning, heated seats, cruise control, power windows, power steering, power mirrors, power-adjustable seats, a power sunroof, power tiling/telescoping steering wheel, four-wheel disc brakes, Lorinser chrome wheels, and a jack.
When the car is started, and the user turns on the car phone, Jordan's name shows on the dashboard display.
S600 models are powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that creates 389 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Lorinser typically offered performance upgrades to its vehicles, however this model does not have any of those modifications listed beyond the Loninser wheels.
The car's odometer reads 157,085 miles.
1996 was the last year that Mercedes-Benz used the S600 badge. For the 1997 model year, the S600 became known as the CL600.
The time when Jordan owned the S690 is a historic time in basketball history. It was in the middle of the second NBA Championnship three-peat that the Chicago Bulls pulled off from 1995-1998. Jordan was named the MVP of those three Championship series.
