A Chrysler 300C once owned by Barack Obama has been listed for sale on eBay. The starting bid is $1 million — 66 times the vehicle’s blue book value.
The 2005 Chrysler 300C was leased and driven by President Obama while he was an Illinois state senator from 2004 through the summer of 2007.
The Blue Book value for the 2005 Chrysler — which is in excellent condition and has 20,800 miles on it — amounts to $16,683 in New York City market.
“Please understand that the $1 million dollar starting price is not a joke,” Czibor writes in the ad, noting that other cars once driven by superstar politicians have sold recently for figures running into the millions.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s 1977 Peugot, for example, fetched $2.5 million last year at an auction.
