It seems difficult to go more than a few weeks without reading about Floyd Mayweather selling off another one of his ridiculously expensive cars. It's sound financial reasoning, since "Money" Mayweather is retiring pretty soon and having plenty of liquid ready to invest is usually a good idea if you don't have many more hundred million dollar paydays, like the one coming up, to look forward to – not to mention that $22 million he reportedly owes the IRS. The latest story comes from various media outlets and follows months of rumors that Mayweather was planning to sell his own "beloved" Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita supercar.
Just in case you've lost track of every hyper-car in the Mayweather fleet, the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is the one he's said to have paid almost $5 million for back in the summer of 2015. Now, the car has been officially listed by auction house Mecum, which is going all-in on the almost literally one-of-a-kind ride:
"The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is unquestionably a leading candidate for the title of the World's Greatest Supercar. It is as exclusive, beautiful, exquisitely detailed and outrageously fast as any of its competitors, if not more so, and this one enjoys the extra fillip of celebrity ownership by one of the 21st century's all-time great athletes, Floyd Mayweather."
In fact, you can probably forget the "almost," since even though there were two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitas built for the 2010 season, only one was modified to be street legal in the United States – no guesses please, I'll just tell you, it was Floyd's. It has just 1,947 miles racked up on the odometer, and on August 19th it will be the "Main Attraction" of the Mecum Pebble Beach auction, and is expected, by most, to go at the very least for a bid in the seven figures.
