George Clooney Auctions Electric Sports Car
George Clooney is auctioning off his 2008 Telsa Roadster on the 19th of August to raise money for the Satellite Sentinel Project, a charity that supports the crisis in Sudan. Although it’s not just about the money, it is also a great way to raise awareness about the NGO and spread the word of Mr Clooney’s charity of choice! The car has only done 1,700 miles and is a very rare limited edition black metallic sports car. It has been reported by the Daily Mail that the auction is is expected to raise anywhere between $100,000 and $125,000 – not too shabby!
“We are overjoyed to present George Clooney’s Signature 100 Tesla at Pebble Beach because this is an incredible opportunity to purchase a modern collector car with all the right elements: one-owner, celebrity provenance, historical significance, limited-edition rarity and philanthropic ties,” – David Gooding, Founder of Gooding & Co, the company which will be auctioning the vehicle.
