Soccer Star Jamie Vardy's Old C63 AMG Is Up For Sale At A Not-So-Insane Price


Cue the soccer haters asking "who?" in 3...2...1

It’s likely you don’t know who Jamie Vardy is or the English soccer team he plays for, Leicester City. Vardy and his teammates just pulled off one of the biggest upsets in sports history. The team were playing in England’s second-tier league back in 2014 and were 5000 to 1 odds to win the Premier League (England’s top league) crown this year. Despite the dismal odds Leicester City won the league with Vardy winning Premier League Player of the Season. Now a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG once owned by Vardy is up for sale.

The car is a 2013 model with 14,000 miles on the clock and the current owner is claiming to have only driven it on weekends. It’s up for sale on Auto Trader UK at £38,500, or $55,282 for us Americans. You’d expect that a car with some celebrity cache would be priced a lot higher, but a quick search of Auto Trader US (prices are bound to differ a bit, we know) shows that this is about the average price for a 2013 C63 AMG with that many miles on it. Unfortunately for fans, Vardy didn’t really do anything to make this car special. The seller says he programmed some football pitches into the navigation system and left a dance CD in the player but that’s all. The engine has been left untouched as well.

Still, for a Leicester City fan this seems like a sweet deal. You get a car driven by one of the greatest players in club history (as dictated by titles) and two-door with a 6.3-liter V8 making 451 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Vardy’s legend may only continue to grow, so this car might be a solid investment for someone looking to cash in once the soccer star calls it quits.
