Celebrities are known for showing off their deep pockets, but no one does it quite like Floyd Mayweather, Jr.—the fact that he has a section on his web site called “Wealth” is telling enough. One of the areas Mayweather probably invests most in is his cars. Not only does the pro boxer have a personal collection, but he’s got some of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world.
Mayweather recently shared a link on his Facebook page to an article on his site showing off some of his prized wheels, including a Bugatti 16.4 Veyron estimated to be worth $1.3 million, a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano worth $350,000, and Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 worth $400,000, and a Ferrari Enzo in the $3.2 million range.
As it was recently reported, the latest addition to Mayweather’s car collection is the very rare Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita super car, which retails for almost $5 million and hits 60 in just fewer than three seconds—there is reportedly only two of its kind in the world and Mayweather owns one of them. Suffice it to say Mayweather’s personal garage is like a dream come true for car aficionados. And he asked one simple question in his Facebook post: “Which is your favorite?”
As you can imagine, Floyd “Money” Mayweather has no problem showing off how he spends his exorbitant stacks of cash, whether it’s his cars, his multi-million-dollar watch collection, or his closet full of designer shoes. It isn’t uncommon though for some of his posts to cause a bit of backlash. For instance, among the 1,400 comments on his Facebook post about the cars are a few that slam the boxer for spending his money on material things instead of using it to do some good in the world—but then he’s probably too busy (either making money or spending it) to be checking his Facebook comments.
