Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather took it to social media to display an impressive collection – One private jet in addition to eight exotic cars
“Welcome to my toy world! Who wants to come out and play?”
That’s the way famous boxer Floyd Mayweather captioned the photo flaunting his Bugatti Veyron, Bugatti Grand Sport, Ferrari 458 Spider, Lamborghini Aventador, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, and private jet. The flamboyant boxing superstar’s fleet of luxury cars cost as much as $7.3 million where his stunning Bugatti Grand Sport alone costs $2 million. It doesn’t take anyone by surprise however, because according to Forbes, Floyd Mayweather made more than $105 million in 2014 alone.
The nine cars shown on the picture that Mr. Mayweather shared via his Instagram account include, from left to right: a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano ($310,000), Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet ($194,000), Lamborghini Aventador ($397,000), a pair of Ferrari 458 Spiders ($257,000 a piece), a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport ($2 million), and two standard Bugatti Veyrons ($1.7 million each). The sport star also owns a Rolls Royce Wraith, Bentley Mulsanne, and previously sold his Phantom, valued at around $1 million on their own.
Paradoxically Floyd Mayweather doesn’t claim to be an automotive collector but he doesn’t mind spending a lot of money on luxury things that are certainly worth the cost. On the popular social media photo-sharing application, the boxing superstar is often photographed showing off bundles of dollars, expensive luxury watch collection, winning bet slips, purse checks, shoe collection, and expensive pieces of jewelries.
To justify the boxer’s luxury taste here are few numbers. Floyd Mayweather has reportedly earned $400 million after turning professional in 1996. In his last nine bouts, he has earned at least $25 million for each. Mayweather’s biggest and the most profitable bout billed as “The One” happened in September 2013, when he fought Canelo Alvarez. It generated a total revenue worth approximately $200 million, which included pay-per-view buys, merchandise, closed-circuit, and gate pass. Mayweather’s career earnings are more than enough to claim the number one spot.
