Jeff Gordon is one of the winningest and most successful drivers in NASCAR history, but it turns out that he may have quite a future in real estate as well after selling his New York City condo for $25 million, according to Matt Chaban of the New York Daily News.

Gordon reportedly bought the three-bedroom condo at 15 Central Park West for $9.7 million in 2007, which means he has netted a hefty profit of more than $15 million after the sale.   

The seventh-floor condo is a sight to behold, as seen in photos courtesy of Halstead Property. An immaculate view of the New York City skyline certainly has to be one of the driving forces behind the lofty price.

The interior isn't too shabby either, as you can tell by looking at the foyer.

In addition to that, Gordon's condo sports one of the nicest kitchens that you will ever see.

Although Gordon was initially looking for $30 million in exchange for the condo, according to Chaban, he still did very well for himself to say the least.

Gordon is unlikely to complain about the nearly $10 million in profit that he is set to make due to the fact that he is in line for another big payday once the Sprint Cup season comes to an end.

Gordon is currently in fourth place in the Sprint Cup standings behind Matt Kenseth, teammate Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick. Gordon has yet to win a race this year; however, he has seven top-five finishes and 16 top-10 finishes to his credit.

He trails Kenseth by just 36 points, and he stands a solid chance of contending for the title if he can reach victory lane in the near future.

While the buyer has yet to be publicly identified, it is being reported that he or she is already a resident in the building who has decided to upgrade from two bedrooms to three.

Regardless of how the rest of Gordon's season plays out, he can certainly consider himself a winner in this deal.
