Yoenis Cespedes selling his custom 2013 Lamborghini Aventador
The case can be made that Yoenis Cespedes was the biggest star of spring training this year, mostly due to his ritual of rolling into the New York Mets facilities driving a different high-priced, tricked-out vehicle for several days straight.
One of the rides that perhaps garnered the most attention was the flame-spitting 2013 Lamborghini Aventador that boasted nearly $80,000 in custom upgrades. But that luxury automobile won’t be in Cespedes’ possession much longer as reports indicate the New York Mets slugger is attempting to sell it.
The car, pimped out by Alex Vega at The Auto Firm in Miami, is slated for the auction block, per a TMZ report.
When asked why Cespedes is deciding to part ways with the custom auto, Vega provided a very reasonable explanation.
“It’s a tough car to own in NYC,” he said.
Bidding on the auto is expected to start out at $280,000. Cespedes also is reportedly throwing in four tickets to a Mets game, a photo-op with him and an autographed jersey to sweeten the deal.
Cespedes of course has plenty of other vehicles in his convoy of high-priced rides, so it’s not like he’ll be left pining over just one leaving his fleet.
Because of course Cespedes remains the proud owner of a custom Ford F-250. And the candy-apple red Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione ($250,000 MSRP) mustn’t be forgotten, either, among others.
Cespedes provided a great answer to explain he was showcasing all his luxury autos, but it became a distraction to such a degree that Mets skipper Terry Collins asked the slugger to put the kibosh on his antics.
