Former race-car driver Enrique Bernoldi listed his 3,793-square-foot Fisher Island condo with an asking price that may put the brakes on some buyers.

Bernoldi wants $7.8 million, or just over $2,000 per square foot, for his apartment at Palazzo Del Sol, a luxury condominium at 7042 Fisher Island Drive.

The former Formula One and IndyCar race-car driver has tested the luxury end of the Miami Beach housing market before. In 2015, Bernoldi sold his condo at the Continuum in South Beach for $6 million. He initially listed the condo at the 100 South Pointe Drive building with an asking price of $7.9 million.

His Fisher Island condo is located on one of the planet’s most exclusive islands. Fisher Island is an enclave of Miami Beach with its own zip code, 33109, which Bloomberg News has ranked as the wealthiest zip code in the United States.

In September 2017, Bernoldi and his wife, Luisa Bernoldi, paid $6.5 million for their condo at Palazzo Del Sol, a 10-story, 43-unit condo building that was completed in 2016.

The couple listed the condo for sale because they are relocating, according to listing agent Jill Eber, half of “The Jills” team with Jill Hertzberg at Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
