You Could Be the New Owner of Mike Zimmer’s Vikings Slingshot
I'm not sure what Mike Zimmer has done with all of his Vikings memorabilia since being fired as the Minnesota Vikings head coach but apparently he at least still has his Vikings-themed slingshot. But not for long, he's looking to sell it to a super-fan!
The listing along with a few photos were shared on the Mike Zimmer Foundation Instagram page. I'm not a massive Vikings fan so I wouldn't drive this, but a big fan out there would die to drive this thing, let alone own it.
It's a really nice purple color, I guess it's called 'Midnight Purple'. Of course, there are some gold accents because you have to have the complete Vikings colors on the car. The Vikings logo is on the front of the car and Kyle Rudolph's number 82 is stitched on the headrests of both seats. While Rudolph's number seems a little random, it was actually his Slingshot before he sold it to Coach Mike Zimmer.
Even though I wouldn't buy this specific Slingshot, I do think Slingshots look pretty sweet, so some Vikings fan is going to look like a BA driving around in this. And honestly, it's listed for way cheaper than I was expecting: $21,000. I was thinking at least $50,000 but then again I guess I don't know what Slingshots are going for new. There are also only 813 miles on it, so hardly used.
The one catch is that it's currently in Walton, KY so whoever buys it either needs to figure out a way to go get it or pay for it to be shipped to them. If you're interested you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. They only way serious inquiries.
