The Volo Auto Museum is now just "Like Mike."

On Wednesday, Michael Jordan sold his Bentley Continental GT Coupe to the museum, which is owned by Greg Grams and located 50 miles northwest of Chicago.

Jordan's Bentley was the the car that inspired the Nike Air Jordan 21 shoe. The front of the shoe is designed to resemble the front of the Bentley grill.

This is the second car that the Volo Auto Museum has bought directly from Jordan, the first being a 1993 ZR-1 Corvette.

The Bentley is a 2005 Continental GT Coupe with only 12,000 miles on it. It has a W-12 engine (which is two V-6 engines sitting side by side) with twin turbo chargers and 552 horsepower. It was personalized by Jordan with dark tinted glass, a set of 9,000 Lowenhart wheels and a talking radar system with front and rear sensors.
