Check Out 10 Bad Ass Cars Of Floyd Mayweather!
Koenigsegg CCXR Trivita
The 1,018-horsepower, 254-mph Koenigsegg CCXR Trivita (the name is a Swedish abbreviation for “tri-white”) wears the world’s only white carbon fiber bodywork. It was so difficult to manufacture that Koenigsegg quit trying after two cars. Mayweather says he paid $4.8 million for this beauty.
In 2002, the 660-horsepower, 218-mph Ferrari Enzo represented the pinnacle of race car performance for the street. Only 400 of the cars were built and Mayweather bought one. Always one to have money on his mind, he says he enjoys that it's appreciating in value.
While all Bugatti Veyrons are incredible machines, the 1,200-horsepower Grand Sport is the maximum version of the car. So while Mayweather owns three Veyrons, we picked the Grand Sport for this list. Mayweather paid $3 million for his matte white example, which he claims is the only one like it in the U.S.
Mayweather loves white cars, including this all-wheel drive 700-horsepower V12 Lamborghini Aventador.
Ferrari 458 Spider
Ferrari makes more expensive models than the 458 Italia Spider, but none that are sexier or more thrilling to drive. This model costs a paltry (for Mayweather’s collection) $250,000 and its screaming V8 engine “only” makes 570 horsepower. We doubt that shortcoming bothers Mayweather when he’s driving it.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Mercedes-Benz aimed to recapture the mystique of the original SL Gullwing when it introduced the SLS. We’d say they succeeded, and apparently Mayweather agrees.
Mayweather enjoys the perfect balance of his alabaster 641-horsepower McLaren 650S.
Mayweather’s pristine Rolls-Royce Wraith is a big car designed with a focus on luxuriously just for two people (we're guessing May and his latest girlfriend).
The Bentley Mulsanne delivers Mayweather to his destinations effortlessly, because the 505-horsepower twin-turbo 6.75-liter V8 engine churns out an incredible 752 lb.-ft. of torque, which makes comfortable cruising a breeze.
reveals a rare streak of sentimentality with his 1996 Mercedes-Benz
S600, a piece of classic V12-powered German engineering that he has kept
in his stable for 17 years.
We just hope he is able to maintain this lavish lifestyle for long so as not to end up like his predecessors in the ring that went from riches to rags.
