There are a lot of used Bentley models listed for sale on Autotrader, often with asking prices in the $10,000 to $20,000 range -- largely due to the fact that they aren't as stately, as new or as luxurious as they once were, and reliability is a challenge. So when I saw this one listed for $350,000, I wondered what was so special about it to drive up the value. The answer? It was OJ Simpson's.

This 1988 Bentley Mulsanne is offered by Motorgroup LLC in the Phoenix area, and it is indeed listed for $350,000. It's traveled just over 63,000 miles, which is relatively high for a Bentley of this era -- but many of those miles were added by OJ Simpson. In fact, Motorgroup LLC notes that the sale not only includes the car, but also an earlier title and bill of sale signed by OJ himself.

So what are the particulars? Finished in black with a black leather interior, this Mulsanne was apparently sold new to OJ and was probably his daily driver, as it had racked up more than 50,000 miles by 1993. According to the seller, the car eventually made its way into the hands of the Goldman family after the family's civil trial, which awarded the Goldman family a huge judgment after OJ's acquittal in the criminal trial. It eventually went to a museum, then to a private collector and now it's for sale again.

Is it worth $350,000? Hard to say, as the right buyer might be interested in this unusual memorabilia from one of the most famous criminal cases in generations.
