A 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600 Coupe previously owned by US basketball superstar Michael Jordan has come onto the market, just five months after reportedly selling for US$202,000 (AU$260,000) online.

Michael Jordan made a return to the media spotlight last year, following the release of the widely acclaimed Netflix miniseries The Last Dance – as a result, many of his personal effects went up to auction with heightened expectations of demand.

As it turns out, the previous "buyer" of the car was reportedly unable to secure financing for the investment and ultimately defaulted on the purchase, hence its reappearance.

Listed through Bring A Trailer, the vehicle is finished in dark blue metallic paint and features a wide range of aesthetic Lorinser modifications specified by Jordan himself – who bought the car new and sold it in 2003 – including a rear spoiler, 20-inch chrome wheels, and dual square exhaust tips.

The front-mounted 6.0-litre V12 produces 290kW/579Nm, sent to the rear wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. The 0-100km/h sprint takes approximately 6.3 seconds.

With just over 250,000km on the clock, the car has not been serviced since 2011, according to the seller, and features spots of rust visible on the underbody and various suspension components.
