Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is many things, but he has seldom — if ever — inspired thoughts of a Hollywood superstar.
That may change when you see his new car.
Malzahn is a fairly new owner of a BMW i8 sports car. The ride touts a hefty retail price tag of $140,700.
“I’ve never had a sports car,” Malzahn told AL.com on Thursday. “I turned 50, you know, and figured it was time to go ahead and get one.”
Malzahn has used his new ride to give a few prospective recruits a lift when they’ve been on campus. If Auburn’s season is as good as Malzahn’s newfound taste in cars, Tigers fans may be happy in 2016.
“I’ve gotta get used to it,” Malzahn said. “I’ve never had one before, so it takes a little getting used to. But I’m kinda liking it.”
