David Fischer, auto dealer and U.S. ambassador to Morocco, has plunked down $12 million for a pad at 825 Fifth Avenue.

The two-bedroom co-op is on the 15th floor of the J.E.R. Carpenter-designed building, and it has a 40-foot terrace facing Central Park. It was listed for $12.5 million. Douglas Elliman’s Genevieve Sonsino and Richard McTighe had the listing.

Fischer was CEO of Detroit-based car-dealership operator Suburban Collection prior to being named U.S. ambassador of Morocco in November 2017.
