With 1,817 horsepower and 8,000 rpm, the car is built for pure speed. Interestingly, this is the world’s most powerful production road car.

It has a huge price tag of $3,50,000 but considering Michael Jordan’s billionaire status, spending that amount of money will not be a problem. Dishing out an absurd amount of money for a car is nothing new for the NBA Hall of Famer. He once spent $650k on a car with only 150 units in the world.

As the news about Jordan’s new purchase does the rounds of the internet, NBA fans on Instagram have pointed out an intriguing detail.
