Michael Jordan breaks down and finally buys American

The greatest basketball player ever to play the game has an obsession with autos. Michael Jordan owns 40 cars in his personal collection, though not one of them wears the badge of an American brand. That changed recently as Cadillac’s general manager Jim Taylor personally delivered MJ the keys to a brand new Cadillac XLR-V.

Inside Line reports that Cadillac had a semi show up at the NBA great’s house with three XLR’s of various hues – Infra Red, Black Raven and Light Platinum. Jordan chose the red one and dropped a cool $100K on the roadster, though Cadillac was kind enough to fit the car with custom sill plates featuring Jordan’s signature etched in aluminum. Credit goes to Cadillac for being the first domestic maker to shoot and score with his Airness.
