Sir Alex Ferguson’s Chevrolet Captiva Auctioned for Charity

Although the Chevrolet Captiva is far from being a soccer VIP’s car (read not Ferrari, Bentley or Maserati), one such SUV was driven by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson on an almost daily basis.

Received by the Scotsman as part of the Manchester United - Chevrolet sponsorship agreement, the Chevrolet Captiva was recently auctioned for charity along with a number of items related to Ferguson’s last year at the helm of the Premier League club.

While the amount of money the SUV was sold for remained undisclosed, the entire proceeds from the Sir Alex Ferguson Golf Classic event were donated to The Royal Welsh Benevolence Fund, an association that provides much needed support to serving and retired Royal Welsh Officers and Soldiers.

Apart from the Chevrolet Captiva seven-seater SUV, a one-off signed portrait of the manager and his handwritten final retirement statement were also auctioned.

Sir Alex Ferguson retired as a football manager this summer, ending a tremendous 39-year career. The Glasgow-born former player and coach managed Manchester United from 1986 to 2013, winning no less than 28 trophies with the English club.
