We’d all be lying if we said we didn’t want to live the lives of our favorite professional athletes. Von Miller’s multi-million dollar mansion and BMW that doubles as a Batmobile? Sign me up. Having a shoe line and your jersey retired in a strip club like James Harden? That works, too.
Sitting in court-side seats or front-row at the game is often times the closest we can get to these superstars. But what if I told you that you could ride around town in a car once owned by one of the more notable quarterbacks in the NFL?
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is selling his 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Coupe at Barbera Autoland in Northeast Philly for the hefty price tag of $149,984 — a bargain according to the website. (Don’t fret, a portion of the sale is going to Wentz’s AO1 Foundation.)
Carson Wentz’s Dodge Challenger
The army green automobile is fully tricked out. It comes with a driver’s seat headrest stitched with the No. 11 along with Wentz’s signature, a neon green speaker system in the trunk and an eight-cylinder engine with more than 400 horsepower.
What’s more is that Wentz’s whip only has 3,689 miles on it, so it won’t feel like you’re buying a used car. Of course, you’d probably want everyone to know you owned it after the 2016 NFL Draft second overall pick out of North Dakota State.
The Eagles were sent home in the NFC Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks (thanks in part to Jadeveon Clowney knocking Wentz out of the game) and are watching the playoffs from their couches along with their NFC East rivals the Dallas Cowboys.
How does this car stack up to those of other Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks and NFL players around the league? It doesn’t quite compare with New England Patriots QB Tom Brady’s Rolls-Royce Ghost or Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton’s 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass, but I’d say it surpasses Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger’s Mini Cooper and Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins’s conversion van.
For any Eagles fans interested in copping the Wentzmobile and taking it for a spin this offseason, I offer you one bit of advice: stay off the road when Clowney’s on it.
