Even if you don’t follow the sport of boxing there’s a very good chance you have at least heard of Floyd Mayweather Jr. ‘Money’ Mayweather is an absolute powerhouse in the ring and destined to be remembered as one of the sport’s greatest when his career is nothing but a long distant memory. In his professional career, Mayweather has taken on 49 fights and walked away from every single one as the winner – 26 of them by knockout. His fame and fighting peak came in May 2015 when he fought Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas in one of the most hyped fights in recent years. Although he faced one more successful bout before retirement, Mayweather’s win over Pacquiao represented the final word on a dominant career in boxing.
A nice bonus for Mayweather is that along with all the fame and titles won inside the ring, success has also given the 38 year old ridiculous amounts of money. From 2012 to 2015 Forbes listed the boxer as the highest paid in professional sports. Raking in an estimated $300 million in 2015 alone, it’s not hard to see why Mayweather rates so highly on such assessments. With so much dough, what’s a guy to do? Well, as you’d expect, the Michigan-born fighter lives quite the lifestyle. He reportedly only wears shoes and boxer-shorts once before throwing them out. He is known for dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars on bets in one day and is often pictured showing off his piles of cash.
As you’d expect, with so much money and a willingness to spend it, Mayweather also sports one of the biggest car collections around. In fact, he has two separate fleets of cars – one in Miami and one in Las Vegas. Loaded with the finest Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys and Rolls-Royces, these collections often catch a lot of interest. Recently, a truck transporting some of his cars caught on fire. Mayweather lost a Bentley and a couple Rolls-Royces. A devastating loss to anyone else, Mayweather probably just shrugged his shoulders and started looking for other luxury and exotic cars to replace them. As you’ll see, given the size and impressive quality of the cars in this boxer’s collection, he probably doesn’t have time to care about losing an estimated $1+ million in the truck fire.
11 Special Mention: Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
10 Rolls Royce Ghost
9 Lamborghini Murcielago
8 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
7 Rolls Royce Phantom
6 Bentley Mulsanne
5 McLaren 650S
4 Lamborghini Aventador
3 Ferrari Enzo
2 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport
1 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
So, remember that Enzo listed a little earlier that Mayweather sold off for around $3.8 million? Speculation is that he took that money and it put it towards buying this super-rare and ultra-exotic $4.8 million Swedish car. There are only two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitas in the world. That’s because this car uses a special carbon-fibre weave with a diamond finish. That’s right, this car is literally made with diamonds which makes it stand out from the normal super cars that use regular carbon fibre. Sure it has a 4.8L twin-turbocharged engine that puts out nearly 800 lb-ft of torque, but that is very secondary to the diamond carbon fibre used in the construction of the body. Trevita means ‘three whites’ which automatically qualifies it for Mayweather’s collection. We’re just wondering how long until he gets bored of it and sells it like many of his other amazing rides.
