Floyd Mayweather, the World heavyweight champion has an impressive car collection whose total value is the equivalent on a small third world pacific island country. You must know that there is a reason why he is popularly called “money”.It can be a pretty hard to keep track of the number of cars he acquires every year , maybe he forgets sometimes whether he has a specific luxury sports car or not and maybe someone needs to keep reminding him of the cars that he already has. He is known to have multiple copies of the same car, color-coded as cars he drives in Miami and cars he drives in Vegas. It is believed that through his illustrious career, Mayweather has owned close to, if not more than, a 100 luxury cars.
Floyd Mayweather Car Collection
This boxer who has an estimated net worth of $280 million can afford to have all these super expensive cars. It is hard to pin down what draws the boxer to a particular ride, it is not so much the brand and make of the car as is the performance that each car delivers.
In January Money tweeted a picture of his jet and collection of cars. The picture showed Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and Bugatti top of the range models ranging in prices from $170,000 for the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet to the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport priced at $1,9 million. The total value of the cars alone comes up to $ 6 million and lets not forget that he has a Gulfstream GIII. In addition to the super sports cars that he has he also owns an Aston Martin, a couple of Bentleys as well as a number of Rolls-Royces. Floyd Money Mayweather has a car collection that is speculated to be worth $16 million.
There have been rumors that he wants to increase the cars but unlike most car collectors, Mayweather is not looking for vintage cars but the most modern cars in the world. Some of these cars are still at their planning stages but already he has acquired a Pagani Huayra worth $3.2 million and an Aston Martin One-77 for the same amount of money. These are sure to be exclusive which makes these more desirable for Mayweather because he seems to like the idea that not many people would have the car he has regardless of the fact of whether he will ever drive it for a lengthy period of time or not.
The most impressive latest acquisition is the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita that can go from 0 to 62 in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 254 miles per hour. At $4.8 million, the Koenigsegg is arguably the most expensive car in the world. Its impressive performance has earned it the title of Hypercar because it leaves the best supercars dead in the dust. The car is so expensive to make that only two cars were made which means Mayweather the second owner of a car most people can only dream of owning.
Floyd Mayweather Cars ‘Money Speaking’
You know you deserve the moniker of “Money” if you loose two Rolls Royce and a Bentley in a fire and replace these with a $3,5 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse hours after the fire. Koenigsegg is barely a year old and already there is a new love interest that has captured Mayweather’s attention, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. The Veyron was launched with so much fanfare and lauded for its ability to outperform the best supercars on the market, Mayweather could not miss out. It’s almost like he can’t help himself, he is an addict still chasing the best high. Hence the accelerated rate at which he buys his new cars but what enables Mayweather to get these unique cars might have to do with the car maker’s need to be associated with such an illustrious sportstar, if not how else would you rationalize having a gold plated Rolls Royce golf cart to cruise around your own estate? A man who commands a fee of $200 million for one day, can afford the best toys and other things he really might never use.
Realistically, Mayweather’s multimillion-dollar cars can only be driven once every couple of months. The celebrity status of the “money” man dictates that he has a driver and body guard which mean he would need a bigger, more practical car to get around. This makes these toys more of a status symbol than a collection driven by passion for collecting automobiles.
Eventually the appeal of supercars will wear off and Mayweather will be looking at boats and yacht (if he doesn’t already own one), he might also look at custom made jets to add to the one he already has or he might look at superbikes. Being rich, famous with money to burn, the sky is the limit.
