Given Michael Jordan was sporting watches worth over $70,000 back in the ’90s, it probably won’t come as a huge surprise that his car collection was also flash AF.

Throughout The Last Dance, ESPN’s lauded documentary series, the six-time NBA champion has been shown driving many beautiful vehicles — from his Chevvy C5 (which he owned in multiple shades, of course) to a special edition, turbo-speed Porsche 911, complete with pop-up headlights.

Jordan’s love for European sports cars was also reflected in the design of some of his signature sneakers — most notably the Nike Air Jordan 14, which was released in a “Ferrari Red” colorway and flipped the Italian luxury automobile manufacturer’s famous logo to include the Jordan Jumpman.

Below you’ll find a handful of our favorite rides Jordan drove in The Last Dance, alongside a couple of vintage car ads that should give you a clearer idea of what these whips can do.

Chevrolet Corvette C5

In The Last Dance, Jordan can be seen parking a black Chevrolet Corvette C5 at the Bulls’ practice facility — “parking” in the loosest sense of the term, which didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter.

The C5, produced between 1997 and 2004, featured a 345-hp 5.7-liter V-8 engine. According to Car and Driver, the ’97 model hit 60mph in five seconds.

Chevrolet Corvette C4 ZR-1

The Last Dance also included a scene in which a young fan approached Jordan while he sat behind the wheel of a red Chevy Corvette ZR-1, which he also owned in bronze (above) and a darker shade of red. The fourth-generation Corvette hit a top speed of 175mph and was in production from the mid-’80s through to ’96.

Jordan’s Ferrari 550 Maranello reportedly inspired the sneaker, which features the Jumpman logo placed on the side like a Ferrari badge.

After the Bulls bagged their third NBA championship, Jordan is shown in The Last Dance driving a white Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet Slant Nose, which features a sloped front and pop-up headlines, as opposed to the 911’s traditional round headlights.

Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4.6

In episode six, Jordan can be seen leaving his mansion (although whether it actually is his mansion remains to be seen) in a V8-powered Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4.6 with a license plate that reads, “TWO TREY.” While the shot is a fleeting one, you can get a better feel for it via the advert above.

Last but not least, he was shown in the show driving a Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Mercedes finished production on the W140 in ’98 but you can take a closer look via the vintage commercial below.
