Michael Jordan, the NBA’s 5th all-time leading scorer, has long enjoyed a taste for exotic cars.Michael Jordan Reportedly Drops $3.5 Million on Sports Car With Top Speed Exceeding 300 MPH.
This has been documented through the years; notably in a GQ feature listing some of the rides that headline his collection.
Michael Jordan has added a rare Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster claimed to be “the world’s fastest and most powerful convertible” with a top speed of 300 mph and a price tag of $3.5 million to his collection of vehicles.
As an athlete who always strived to be the best and is known for his competitive spirit, it seems to suit Jordan, who is now one of only 30 people to own the supercar, according to Robb Report, as the company limits its production.
The Hennessey Performance account took to Instagram and wrote along with a photo of company CEO John Hennessey with Jordan and his new ride outside the Hall of Famer’s private golf club in Florida, Grove XXIII.
“Today was a special day. Such an honor to build a special Venom F5 for a special friend.”
wrote Hennessey, followed by a goat emoji
Jordan owns one of 30 Venom F5’s in the world. The car has not yet been released to the public.
In total, Hennessey Performance built 24 of the coupes, which have all sold out. Only 30 of the Roadsters edition Jordan bought were made, indicating just how exclusive ownership is for one of these vehicles.
The supercar is said to have an enormous 1,600 horsepower and is reported to cost $ 5 million.
The Charlotte Hornets owner launched the NASCAR team with Bubba Wallace, the only full-time black driver on the circuit, back in 2020.
‘Historically, NASCAR has struggled with diversity and there have been few black owners,’ Jordan said in a statement at the time.
Jordan is currently one of four black owners in the stockcar racing circuit, one of whom is boxing great Floyd Mayweather. Naturally, ‘Money May’ heads up The Money Team Racing.
Jordan collected $256 million last year from his licensing deal with Nike after the Jordan Brand reported $5.1 billion in revenue.
Tyler Reddick and famed stuntman, Travis Pastrana, are the two other drivers on Jordan’s 23XI Racing roster.
