The 46th Annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale in Arizona puts up for sale a 2011 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport once owned by professional boxing champion Floyd Mayweather. Moreover, the pro championship boxer attended Barrett-Jackson’s 2017 Scottsdale Auction on Sat. Jan 21, 2017, to help sell an auto. The bidding for the 1,000 horsepower car failed to reach its reserve price, stalling just below $2 million. The reserve had been set at $2.3 million. Current on all services, with the wheels and tires replaced recently, the supercar has just over 1,668 miles on it.
The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most impressive supercars ever built. Those who own these rare cars are among the who’s who of the world. This particular Grand Sport version was originally owned by Floyd Mayweather, whose impressive professional boxing career and lavish lifestyle may be as remarkable as the car. The winning bidder on this rare supercar will have the bragging rights not only to a rare exotic, but to its celebrity provenance. – Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson
