Own a Piece of Movie History: ‘Talladega Nights’ Mansion on Sale for Just Under $10 Million
Will Ferrell has created several classic (and very quotable) characters throughout his career, as both brief cameos and as the leading man. One of his most memorable characters has to be Ricky Bobby in 2006's Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.
After taking the NASCAR world by storm and winning several races, Ricky makes a ton of money which he uses to purchase, among other things, a massive home. Now, the real-life mansion used in the movie is for sale, and it looks like you'll need a NASCAR driver's salary in order to afford it.
This lavish home is located at 17240 Connor Quay Court, in Cornelius, North Carolina. It is being listed by RE/MAX agent Kandi H. Lowe who gives the following description:
