Bloombergreports that the 2001 Mercedes-Benz E320 previously owned by the king of the prison yard will be auctioned off October 23 along with a bunch of other vehicles seized by the U.S. Marshals Service. The suggested retail value is $13,727 to $19,530 and according to Tim Minoughan, the guy running this thing, the ride won't go for much more than that, cause it's not "a Bentley or a Rolls Royce or something really high valued." Also? Because car itself isn't really tainted by the scam which is what would up the re-sale value. Bernie wasn't screwing investors in the back seat (I think we're in post-Sheryl Weinstein years here), so really all you're getting is the car Ruth used out in Montauk. Which leads us to the item you will want to throw down a significant portion of your bonus on:

There's also a 2007 Coachmen Freelander recreational vehicle with 8,939 miles on the odometer that belonged to Samuel Israel [AS IN, IT WAS HIS GETAWAY CAR], founder of the Bayou Group LLC hedge fund, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for a $400 million fraud.
