President Obama's former Chrysler 300 back on eBay — $1 million

The 2005 Chrysler 300C leased by President Barack Obama in July 2004 with two miles on the odometer, is back for up for auction again on eBay for $1 million.

The vehicle, which features a host of options — leather seats to CD player — did not sell for the same $1 million during its recent first eBay auction.

In the comments, the seller writes:

"We have the original Illinois title showing this vehicle was actually used by Barack. 19,000 miles driven when this vehicle was Obama's – I'm sure many of them were highway miles back & forth from Chicago to Springfield since Barack was an Illinois State Senator during 2004.

"He won election to the U.S. Senate in November of 2004 and perhaps drove the car in Washington D.C. and back to Chicago in 2005 & 2006. His Presidential Campaign began in February of 2007."

President Obama received a lot of negative media attention in Detroit and from the auto industry from his use of the not-so-green Chrysler that's powered by a V8 Hemi. Obama drove Chrysler 300C from 2004 through the summer of 2007, logging more than 19,000 miles. Obama then traded the car in for a 2007 Ford Escape Hybrid.

The vehicle is for sale in Illinois and can be viewed in Naperville,  just outside of Chicago.
