Michael Jordan is widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of all-time. Off the court, Jordan is known for his savvy business moves that have allowed him to build a reported $2.2 billion empire. The six-time NBA champion has used that money to build an luxurious car collection. Take a look at some of Michael Jordan’s most impressive cars below.
Michael Jordan’s first car was a gift
In his rookie season with the Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan signed his first endorsement deal with Chevrolet, even before joining Nike. In return for shooting commercials for the car company, Jordan was given a silver 1984 Chevrolet Corvette C4 with the license plate ‘JUMP23’. The car retailed for $21,800 at the time, which is more than $60,000 in today’s terms.

Michael Jordan’s most expensive car purchase
While Michael Jordan has a very extensive collection of cars, none cost as much as his 2010 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir. The five-time NBA MVP reportedly spent $2.25 million on the car, which would be over $3 million in today’s terms. While the car is the NBA Hall of Famer’s most expensive car purchase, it may also be his rarest. There were reportedly only 12 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir’s made, however, the ten-time scoring champion was able to grab one.
