Big Papi's Mercedes To Sell For Big Bucks
Wow, this puts Tom Brady's Mercedes to shame. Red Sox heavy hitter David Ortiz, also known as Big Papi, is having a great response to the auction of his 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG. Ortiz bought the 604-horsepower convertible for $205,000 and then spent another $35,000 souping it up with custom wheels and an improved stereo system. It was a treat to himself after the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004. The car has just over 4,000 miles on it and has had a pampered life. Who knows what led Ortiz to put the car on eBay, hoping for a new purchase perhaps? Fans and cars lovers have been going wild over the auction which ends today. Last time I looked it was at $465,500. The winner will receive the car personally from Ortiz.
