Michael Jordan buys a 2,000 HP supercar

The basketball legend has just acquired an exceptional supercar, which completes his prestigious collection in his garage.

Michael Jeffrey Jordan is considered by most fans and scholars to be the best basketball player of all time. He won the NBA six times and since 2009 he has been a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame. In addition, the sports network ESPN named him the best athlete of the 20th century. Thanks to his wealth obtained throughout his careerwith exorbitant contracts, he was able to make himself some great gifts, including a supercar which speaks.

The world’s fastest convertible supercar

Beyond his exploits on the basketball and baseball courts — after quitting basketball, he signed a contract with Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox — Jordan is a lover of speed. He is also the owner of the 23XI Racing NASCAR team and of many cars and motorcycles that he cherishes in his garage.

A few hours ago, he decided to show off his latest acquisition, along with John Hennessey, CEO of the brand that bears his name. This is the Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster supercar, capable of reaching the 300 miles per hour (500 km/h) mark thanks to its 6.6-liter V8 Fury engine and 1,842 hp. Michel Jordan paid 3.5 million dollars, or 3,254,440 euros, to afford it.
