George Foreman’s Massive Luxury Car Collection up for Auction
Former boxer and kitchen-appliance maven George Foreman is getting rid of his extensive luxury car collection, which numbers a whopping 52 vehicles. The lot is currently up for auction through Hagerty Marketplace, according to a statement released through PR Newswire.
The vehicles, which range from 1931–2005 models, will be taken off the block sometime between December 11th and December 21st. However, multiple cars will be removed each weekday, so if there’s one you particularly have your eye on, you should act soon.
“The Collection is certainly unique and diverse, with the earliest example being a 1931 Ford Model A Cabriolet A400 and one of the latest being a 2005 Ford GT,” noted Hagerty Marketplace Car Specialist Cason Vogel. “The more than 50 motor cars offered are highlighted with a plethora of marques, including Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ferrari, Dodge, Plymouth, BMW, Porsche, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Volkswagen.”
Each item in Foreman’s collection will be auctioned without reserve, meaning they’ll be sold regardless of price. This is usually done to draw in a larger number of bidders looking for a deal, which inevitably drives the final price higher. Hagerty notes that the 52 vehicles “have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention before being driven.”
“I have been a car collector and enthusiast most of my life, but the time has come for me to share my cars with other like-minded enthusiasts,” Foreman said in the statement of his unprecedented decision. “Being able to offer them to the more than million-strong Hagerty audience is the best way to ensure they get the attention they deserve.”
Foreman is a former Olympic gold medalist and a two-time world heavyweight champion. In his career, he took 76 wins over 81 fights, 68 of which were through knockouts. He remains the oldest boxer to ever earn a heavyweight title, which he did at 45. A film, Big George Foreman, released earlier this year dramatized his numerous accomplishments.
