The 75-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger and the 60 years that he spent under the spotlight is a saga of an Austrian boy’s rise to the most famous and recognized man in the world. The Austrian Oak, as he has endearingly been nicknamed by the bodybuilding community, stands as a testament to Schwarzenegger’s influence on the same, and his eventual fame in the upper strata of Hollywood elites and the filmmaking community later paved the path for many from the WWF world (re: Dwayne Johnson, John Cena, Dave Bautista) to find a second shot at fame among the glittering boulevards of la la land.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Sells Off His Bugatti Veyron

After a life marked by politics and activism, the Governator finds himself at a period of time when there is nothing to do but rest and enjoy the fruits of his extended labor. For a man who has been so busy making a name for himself, leisure seems a difficult concept to grasp. Rising out of a small Austrian village town, Arnold Schwarzenegger was a teenager when he decided a life of conforming was not for him – “…every time someone said, ‘You can’t do this,’ I said, ‘This is not going to be for much longer because I’m going to move out of here. I want to be rich. I want to be somebody.'”

However, now that he is here and the life he envisioned has happened already, and there is nothing more to accomplish, Arnie looks back at the objects of his past, things he picked up along the way, and to the fans’ disappointment, decides to part with one of the most valuable possessions in his collection. A silver Bugatti Veyron, the legally marketable fastest street car that exists right now, has been transferred from Schwarzenegger and now lies under the ownership of a Nigerian businessman, Obi Okeke for nearly $2.5 million.
