‘Automotive Man’ Joe Biden As soon as Owned This One-of-a-Sort Cadillac. Now It’s up for Public sale.

Some cars may be fit for a president; others actually belonged to one.

A 2018 Cadillac ATS-V that was owned by Joe Biden before he took office is currently up for grabs on Cars & Bids. The president hasn’t hidden the fact that he’s a car guy, so it’s no surprise to see that the sedan comes with performance upgrades and a unique color scheme.

The ATS-V isn’t the most glamorous car Biden has owned—our vote goes to his green 1967 Chevrolet Corvette—but it still has plenty going for it. The compact executive car is finished in Raven Black over a Kona Brown interior, a one-of-kind spec that was built just for the politician, according to documentation. Other details include gold 18-inch CT4-V Blackwing rims and the Rennick Performance trim package. The ATS-V is a high-performance variant, so it had some serious pep courtesy of its turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 that produces 464 hp and 445 ft lbs of torque. That’s more than enough power to have some fun.

Biden leased the car from a Cadillac dealership in Wilmington, Delaware, in 2017 shortly after he completed his two terms as Barack Obama’s vice president. He held on to the car until 2020, the same year he beat then-incumbent Donald Trump to become the U.S.’s 46th president. The car has 15,900 miles on it, most of which is said to have been put on it by the politician.

Biden’s ATS-V isn’t the only vehicle once owned by a president to hit the open market this year. Earlier this year, a 1997 Lamborghini Diablo VT once owned by Trump was one of the headline lots at Barrett-Jackson’s annual Scottsdale sale last month. The slightly more flamboyant supercar sold for $1.7 million. Trump may not be as associated with cars as Biden, but it’s not remotely surprising to learn he owned such a brash ride.

We have a feeling Biden’s Caddy won’t fetch quite that much, but if you’re looking to add it to your collection, you have until next Wednesday, February 21, to bid on the sedan. As of press time, bidding had reached $38,000, but don’t be surprised to see that number climb upward in the days to come.
