Floyd Mayweather used to be known as the king of the ring, but with his boxing career coming to an end, he is now the unofficial king of luxury cars. Recently, I speculated that Floyd may be addicted to buying super expensive luxury cars when he purchased one of the two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitas in the world for $4.8 million. This time he has dropped $3.5 million and has plans to build up his luxury car collection until it's worth $30 million!
The car Mayweather just purchased is a 2015 Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse, for which he paid $3.498 million at Braman Bugatti in Miami, FL. The Grand Sport Vitesse has enhanced features over and above the original Grand Sport, such as four larger turbochargers and larger air coolers. Floyd's newest ride has an 8.0 liter 16-cylinder engine, capable of 1,200 horsepower with a seven-gear twin clutch gearbox transmission. The car is black with orange trim, just in time for Halloween.
Floyd's car guy, Obi Okeke, was, as is customary, involved in his latest deal. "Floyd called me up and told me he wants to broker this Bugatti deal so I flew out to Miami on Saturday to work the deal and we just got it done. The Bugatti is brand new 2015 and the last one for sale in the world" said Okeke.
If that is not enough, Okeke said that "Floyd's car collection is worth about $16 million right now and he wants to push it up to $30 million, and the biggest challenge for me is to find him very special unique cars." The co-owner of Fusion Luxury Motors said that Floyd is planning on purchasing an Aston Martin One-77, worth $3.3 million and a Pagani Huayra, worth $3.2 million very soon. Okeke said that he has been working on getting the cars "for a while and they showed up in my showroom yesterday."
While a $30 million luxury car collection may sound extremely expensive, Floyd's $400 million net worth means that he would have less than 10% of his assets tied up in cars. Perhaps one day he will be able to open his own luxury car museum, and of course, he would keep all the profits.
