It may only be mid February, but it looks as if Charlie Sheen is getting a jump on his spring cleaning.
The 50-year-old is looking to get rid of his custom 2009 Maybach Landaulet 62S, reportedly listing the luxury vehicle on Ebay.
Bidding on the bulletproof set of wheels began at only $200, though the buy-it-now price is a steep $325,000.
Getting a jump on that spring cleaning! Charlie Sheen has listed his custom 2009 Maybach Landaulet 62S on Ebay (pictured in New York City February 9)
Top dollar: The buy-it-now price for the custom, luxury vehicle comes in at a cool $325,000
The listing reads: ‘2009 Maybach 62S Celebrity owned, perfect condition, bullet proofing upgrade, armormax.’
And though the buy-it-now price seems steep, Charlie’s 2009 could still go for much less than the cost of a new Maybach 62, which clocks in at around $400,000.
TMZ listed Charlie’s reason for unloading the Maybach after seven years as: ‘Done dodging bullets. An expired fear mongering caucus lost their vote.’
Meanwhile, the star has been pretty focused on his health of late, as he appeared on the Dr. Oz show on Wednesday to discuss a new experimental HIV treatment he would be starting.
Quite a sell: The listing for the car – that can cost up to $400,000 new – boasts: ‘Celebrity owned, perfect condition, bullet proofing upgrade, armormax’
After being ‘duped’ into a so-called alternative therapy that replaced antiviral medication with arthritic goats milks, the Anger Management star has consulted with his doctors and will now embark on a clinical trial of an HIV drug created by a small Canadian company.
‘I got duped,’ Charlie told Dr. Oz. ‘(But) I’m very excited about this. These are scientists and brilliant doctors and researchers. It’s a public company. There’s absolute transparency. There’s no back rooms or hidden agenda.’
The treatment he is starting is called Pro 140 Monotherapy and has been created by CytoDyn, a publicly-traded company based in Vancouver.
Gathering interest: Initially TMZ reported the starting price at $200, though 93 bids later the car’s reserve has still not been met at over $100,000
CytoDyn President and CEO, Nader Z. Pourhassan, appeared with Charlie on Dr. Oz, where he explained that the star is currently being screened to see if he can join the trial.
If he passes, the treatment would be two injections each week and Charlie would be monitored by doctors.
Nader said the company has patients in the trial – some that took up to seven pills a day – that have been off their medications for 18 months because of the treatment.
A lot on his plate: Charlie has been focusing on his health of late, appearing on Wednesday’s episode of Dr. Oz (with CytoDyn President and CEO, Nader Z. Pourhassan, R) to discuss a new experimental HIV treatment he would be starting
Charlie – born Carlos Estévez – later spoke of risking his life with the untested treatment, saying: ‘I’ve been off my meds about a week now. I feel great. Am I risking my life? So what? I was born dead. That part of it doesn’t phase me at all.’
The actor, who revealed he was diagnosed with the virus four years ago, added: ‘I didn’t see it as Russian roulette. I didn’t see it as a complete dismissal of the conventional course we’ve been on. I’m not recommending that anyone – I’m presenting myself as a type of guinea pig.’
