The LeBron James name might have some magic in South Beach, but a little further up the east coast of Florida not quite as much, apparently.

Saturday at the 12th annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction, a 2006 Bentley Arnage R luxury sedan that James once owned sold at auction for $65,000. That’s a far cry from its original base price of $212,990 when new. In fact, there was no celebrity premium at all for the maroon sedan.

Linda Vaughn, the legendary Hurst Miss Golden Shifter, is here this weekend, as she often is at Barrett-Jackson auctions, and there’s a very special car going across the block today at around 4:30 p.m. ET.

The Thornton family specializes in world-class Oldsmobile restorations, with one of their 442s selling here last year for an eye-popping $275,000.
