Obamobile For Sale on Ebay
However, the vehicle's value is already high because of Barack Obama's actual position. For those who missed it, the Obamobile is available for purchase on eBay, with the latest owner setting an amazing $100,000 opening bid.
The blue vehicle has automatic transmission and exhibits a comfortable cabin: leather seats, sunroof and dual zone air conditioning. In addition, the car has power windows and power door locks. And if having Obama's Chrysler 300c Hemi isn't tempting enough, you should know the car is still under the manufacturer's warranty.
The 2005 year model has 20,000 miles on board and served Obama faithfully until the president elect decided to opt for a greener vehicle. The Illinois senator traded it for one of Ford's hybrid Escape SUVs after being criticized by the US media for his speech blaming the Detroit industry to have failed in the production of cars that reflected consumer needs for greater efficiency. Look who was talking!
Yet, according to US price guides, a low mileage 2005 model 300C shouldn't value more than $15,000. Considering the opening bid, the Obamobile is not exactly what we could call a bargain but curiosity floats in the air to see if the Obama charm will increase the price of the vehicle with more than $80,000. Most probably we'll find this out on December 17, when the bidding ends.
