Michael Jordan bough a limited edition supercar

Michael Jordan earned a ton of money even after he finished playing basketball, thanks to his savyness in investing in himself. Due to this, he has built an empire and is now a billionaire, which allows him to buy luxurious things in the process.

Recently, it’s been reported that Jordan bought a limited edition supercar that’s worth $3.5 million for himself. MJ bought a Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster, which runs up to 311 mph of top speed due to its 1,817 twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Additionally, he bought the Roadster edition, giving him a retractable roof.

There are only 30 Hennessey Venom F5 Roadsters made and the Chicago Bulls legend made sure he got himself one. The owner of Hennessey Performance, John Hennessey, was present when MJ bought the car.

He even posed with the six-time NBA champion and posted it on Instagram:

“Today was a special day. Such an honor to build a special Venom F5 for a special friend.” Hennessey wrote on Instagram.

Perhaps being a co-owner of a NASCAR team gave MJ a ton of reasons to buy the limited edition car. The member of the Dream Team currently owns the 23XI NASCAR racing team
