Floyd Mayweather, Jr. - or "Money" as some people refer to him - swims in a lake of cash. And one of his favorite hobbies is collecting cars. While estimates vary, he easily has a net worth of several hundred million dollars as of this writing. It goes without saying: when you have that kind of money, you gotta spend it on something. Mayweather is believed to own more than a hundred cars, and is known for buying numerous versions of the same car to acquire different styles. He is also said to own a collection of all white cars in Miami and a group of all black cars in L.A.
Let us take a closer look at Floyd Mayweather's top 10 car collection:
10. Rolls Royce Ghost
When you take a close look at his collection, it is easy to see that Floyd Mayweather is a Rolls Royce fanatic. One of his personal best has probably got to be the Rolls Royce Ghost. While many people would be stunned at the $250,000 it took "Money" to acquire the car, to him that's just pocket change. Fortunately, it comes with all the luxury and good looks you would expect from this company, in addition to a jaw-dropping array of specs under the hood. The Ghost runs through a 6.6-liter twin turbocharged V12 engine that can put out 575 lb ft of torque and 562hp. How's that for power in a car that looks more like a luxury than a sports car?
9. Lamborghini Murcielago
Lamborghini is the go to brand for athletes who love to brag about their money (in a good way, of course). And Mayweather has his own fair share of these Italian super-cars. While most of his cars are usually black or white, his Murcielago is a unique yellow addition to his personal collection. It has a 6.5-liter V12 engine that spits out 650hp, as well as an AWD system to stabilize the tremendous power. Since they stopped making them in 2010, it can be rather difficult to determine how much he spent on this car. What is certain though is that the Murcielago cost about $330,000 new. Today, excellently maintained specimens can go for much more than that.
8. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
This car possesses two of the most appealing attributes for someone like Floyd Mayweather: it is compact and powerful. The 2-door gullwing is reminiscent of the revolutionary 300SL while the general design leaves celebrities from all walks of life drooling for the car. Hidden beneath this design is a 6.2-liter AMG tuned engine that can produce 563hp. The car, which cost about $220,000 at purchase, put Mayweather in the same league as other notable collectors such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Jay Leno, and Roger Federer.
7. Rolls Royce Phantom
The Rolls Royce Phantom is the symbol of British luxury cars. Handcrafted in England, the RR Phantom was acquired by Mayweather at an asking price of $410,000. The car features first class amenities and can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 5.7 seconds thanks to its enormous 6.8-liter V12 engine that boasts 531 lb ft of torque and 453hp. While it is obviously not as powerful as its counterpart RR Ghost, the Phantom is more about luxury than power.
6. Bentley Mulsanne
The Bentley Mulsanne is the kind of car you turn to when you are tired of cruising around in a Rolls Royce all week long. While the starting price for this car is about $306,000, it can be customized to include a wide range of features as desired by the owner. As such, you can be sure that Floyd Mayweather paid much more for his Mulsanne. The interior is a blend of expensive wood and leather, while the outside looks exactly like a Rolls Royce. Under the hood, there is a 5.75-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that emits an impressive 505hp.
5. McLaren 650S
The McLaren 650S is an upgrade of the previous MP4-12C, whose production ended in 2014. The 650S retained the same engine and chassis in the 12C and is extremely lightweight. With the ability to accelerate from 0-60 in three seconds, this car definitely deserves its spot in the fighter's personal garage. And at $270,000, it is a steal compared to other super cars.
4. Lamborghini Aventador
Introduced in 2011, the Aventador was an instant hit among those who adored shiny, high performance Italian exotics. One thing's for sure: the car does not possess any subtlety or mystery. The engine alone (a 6.5-liter V12 that produces a staggering 691hp with an AWD system) is enough to clarify that this is a very serious performance car. The car can pace from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds and has a max speed of 350kmh. This combination of features is not cheap, as Mayweather spent about $400,000.
3. Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport
There are quite a number of Bugatti Veyrons in Floyd Mayweather's personal car collection. While it is difficult to decide which ones to include in this list and which ones to leave out, the white Veyron Grand Sport tends to stand out. Only 150 of these were ever manufactured, making this model extremely rare. It's only until you get inside that you can appreciate how powerful it is. This is due to a ridiculously big 8-liter 16 cylinder engine and 4 turbochargers that add up to help the gigantic engine put out more than 1000hp and achieve a maximum speed of 408kmh.
2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Word is, Floyd Mayweather listed his Ferrari Enzo for about $3.8 million and invested the money in another ultra-exotic, super rare Swedish car for $4.8 million. Only two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitas exist in the world, probably because the car utilizes special carbon fiber weave furbished with diamond. Yes, you read that right: the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita is literally lined with diamonds, which is what makes it unique from the other super cars that only use regular carbon fiber. In addition, it comes with a 4.8-liter twin turbocharged engine that emits up to 800 lb ft of torque. Trevita refers to "three whites".
1. Bugatti Chiron
As said earlier, Floyd Mayweather is bonkers for Bugatti. The former king of the ring has reportedly parted with $3.5 million for a 2017 Bugatti Chiron, which boasts a 8L W16 engine w/and 4 turbochargers that can produce 1500hp. With an acceleration of 0-100kmh in less than 2.5 seconds, the car can hit a maximum speed of 420kmh, electronically restricted.
