Do you have an extra $800k laying around? Well, don’t worry, you won’t have to spend the entire amount — You only need $799,000 to buy Miami Heat’s Dawyne Wade’s McLaren MP4-12C.

Wade received the car for his 30th birthday. According to the website that is selling the car, dupontregistry.com, Wade himself isn’t selling the car:

Dwyane Wade is not selling the McLaren THE COLLECTION gifted him for his 30th birthday. He returned the car to THE COLLECTION in exchange for another vehicle. The car is now being sold independently by an individual who bought the car used from our dealership. We were not aware that the client intended to sell the car. We believed he would keep it for his personal collection. We sincerely value our relationship with Mr. Wade. He drives several of our luxury vehicles and want to be clear that he has nothing to do with the online sale of this vehicle.

Well, isn’t that good news, he isn’t trying to cash in for himself, but some other poor sap is. Since the car starts at $239,400 brand spanking new, someone is trying to get a little mark-up on the car. “OOOOOOOhhh, I am driving Dwayne Wade’s old car!” Does this person really think someone will spend almost three times the cost of the car new just to say they sat where Wade did? I’m gonna go with no!
