Being a wealthy celebrity in 2021 has nothing to do with appreciating a beautiful vintage car that was made in 1988. This is an idea that probably “sinks” with popular American actress, Gabrielle Union, who recently presented a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL convertible to her husband as a birthday gift. The popular actress did not only present the beautiful car ahead of her husband’s actual birth date, but she also surprised him by getting a car from 33 years ago.

For those who do not already know, Dwayne Tyrone Wade Jr. is the real name of Gabrielle Union’s husband. He was the super-talented shooting guard for the popular American Basketball team, Miami Heat, between 2003 and 2019. The retired professional basketball player recently took to his official Instagram handle to share a short video of the moment his wife presented him the 1988 Benz convertible.
Below is the viral Instagram video shared by Gabrielle Union’s husband.
Gabrielle Union’s husband seems to “dig” the vintage car gift as he is seen to be overly excited and dancing in the video when he saw the 1988 convertible Benz. He also mentioned in his Instagram video caption that his wife has “raised the bar” this time around. According to reliable sources, this 1988 Mercedes-Benz 560SL would cost between ₦3.81million ($10,000) and ₦38.1million ($100,000) to buy one today. Also, this price is even dependent on the current condition of the unit which is being put up for sale. The leather interior treatment, exterior paint condition, and many other factors will determine the starting price which a vintage car dealership will give for such a 33-year-old model.
