Before he was the President, Donald Trump was the consummate NYC playboy, and he appeared to relish in that role.
Trump’s large fortune, combined with his work as a mover and shaker in the Big Apple’s real estate market, made him a man of serious substance, who would be seen out and about on the town in the company of some of the Five Burroughs’ most notable socialites.
And, when he had the opportunity, Donald Trump surely knew how to make an entrance, often arriving in lavish and luxurious vehicles that lent an air of import wherever they were spotted.
Now, if you have a couple hundred thousand dollars laying around, you could take home one of these high-end motorcars that once belonged to Mr. Trump.
A 2007 Ferrari F430 and a 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom that he previously owned will be crossing the block at the Mecum Auctions Kissimmee event in January in Trump’s new home state of Florida. According to the auction house, the presidential pair is currently owned by the same collector.
The red Ferrari was last auctioned in 2017 for $270,000 and the Rolls-Royce in 2018 for $145,000. The black four-door has 56,700 miles on it and comes with an owner’s manual that Trump signed: “I loved this car, it is great! Best of luck.”
President Trump, much like his predecessors in the Oval Office, are forbidden from driving on pedestrian roads while holding office, allowing the Secret Service to handle that chore.
And, while it’s not expressly forbidden, former Presidents who are still under the care of the elite law enforcement unit often continue to forego public driving long after they’ve left Pennsylvania Avenue.
