Jordan sells shoe-inspiring Bentley to auto museum

Jordan Bentley

The front of the Nike Air Jordan 21 was designed to look like the front of Michael Jordan’s customized Bentley Continental GT Coupe. Because, if you are Michael Jordan you can have a multinational corporation design a shoe based on your car.

Jordan has now sold the car Volo Auto Museum, reports CSN Chicago.

The Bentley is a 2005 Continental GT Coupe with only 12,000 miles on it. It has a W-12 engine (which is two V-6 engines sitting side by side) with twin turbo chargers and 552 horsepower. It was personalized by Jordan with dark tinted glass, a set of $9,000 Lowenhart wheels and a talking radar system with front and rear sensors.

I bet it gets terrible gas mileage. Which I’m sure is why Jordan sold it.

    It is the Volo auto museum not Volvo. It is located in Volo Illinois.
