Love him or hate him, no one can argue that Donald Trump knows how to spend some money. According to this listing on Ebay, in 1992 Trump bought this Acura NSX for his girlfriend, the famous Marla Maples. It has since changed hands and can now be yours, just in time for election season.
In 2005, I purchased this black on black 1991 Acura NSX on eBay directly from Marla Maples. She kept this car for over twice the time she was with Donald. Smart woman. Despite what the “autocheck” vehicle history indicates, I am the second owner, not the third owner! There’s a story behind this car, but out of respect for both Marla and Mr. Trump these details will not be published here.
This NSX is a 5-speed manual car and has about 82,000 miles. The seller claims the car is in “very good” condition with some minor issues. He has put an opening bid of $48,000 with a buy-it-now price of...wait for it...$288,000. There is no reserve.
The seller seems to think that this NSX will be an “investment opportunity” -
The lucky winner of this auction will undoubtedly make a healthy profit on this investment when they are ready to do so.
If Donald Trump were to become president, think about how much this vehicle will be worth.
Since other first generation NSX examples are listing in the $40,000 range, an $8k premium given the celebrity connection doesn’t seem too ridiculous. Now that Trump is gaining more supporters as he continues to campaign, we will have to wait and see if any of them put their money where their mouth is.
