The 10 Most Exotic Cars Owned by Floyd Mayweather
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is very good at punching people, but he’s even better at making money for punching people. Estimates vary, but he’s easily worth several hundred million dollars right now. When you have that kind of money, you have to spend it on something, and one thing Floyd Mayweather loves to spend money on is cars.
He’s said to own more than 100 cars, often buying multiple versions of the same car because he likes multiple styles. He also reportedly keeps a fleet of all-black cars in Los Angeles and a fleet of all-white cars in Miami. With a collection like that, narrowing it down to just a handful was hard, but here are 10 of the wildest cars Floyd Mayweather owns.
1. Bentley Mulsanne
The Bentley Mulsanne is the most expensive Bentley you can buy and is a rolling monument to luxury. It’s powered by a 505-horsepower V8 that makes a humongous 752 pound-feet of torque. Considering that the Mulsanne weighs close to 6,000 pounds, it needs that much power to get down the road. It’s the exact opposite of a sports car, though, instead focusing on floating down the road in supreme comfort.
2. Bugatti Veyron
Even though the price of a single Veyron is more than $1 million, Mayweather liked his first one so much, he now has at least three. For that million dollars, though, you get 1,000 horsepower out of a 16-cylinder engine and a top speed so high, it’s unlikely you will ever reach it — even on a private track. Bugatti is rumored to be working on a follow-up, but it’s going to be hard to top the supercar to end all supercars.
3. Ferrari 458 Italia
The Ferrari 458 Italia isn’t as fast as the Bugatti Veyron is in a straight line, but where the 458 really shines is in the corners. It’s luxurious and exotic, sure, but it was designed with an emphasis on aerodynamics and downforce, making it a track monster. Mayweather also made sure to pick up the convertible version when it came out, too.
4. Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Even more expensive than the Ferrari 458 Italia, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano also has a place in Mayweather’s collection. Its 6.0-liter V12 is ridiculously powerful, putting out 612 horsepower. Perhaps most notably, the 599 GTB was the last Ferrari offered with a manual transmission. After it went out of production, no other Ferrari has or will be offered with one.
5. Ferrari Enzo
Naming a car after the founder of a company requires that the car be exceptional, and in the case of Enzo Ferrari, his namesake was truly exceptional. Its 651-horsepower V12 engine gave the Enzo enough power to break 220 miles per hour. It wasn’t built to be a drag racer, though, and was instead focused on lapping tracks as fast as humanly possible. Its design might not be beautiful, but it’s still one of the greatest Ferraris of all time.
6. McLaren 650S
Building a car to follow up the McLaren F1, one of the greatest cars ever made, was no small feat, so the engineers at McLaren didn’t try to build a better car. Instead, they built a different car, the MP4-12C — a supercar that ended up being blindingly fast around the track. The updated version of that car was the 650S, was even more powerful, even faster, and even more dominant around a track.
7. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Supercars are all extremely fast these days, but development in wind tunnels and on tracks is leading a lot of them to end up looking similar. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, on the other hand, bucked the trend. It was designed to echo the famous 300SL Gullwing — complete with gullwing doors. Even though it’s finished production now and has been replaced with the Mercedes-AMG GT, the SLS AMG still looks amazing and as fresh as the day it rolled off the assembly line.
8. Lamborghini Aventador
The Lamborghini Murcielago was a great car, but by the end of its 10-year run, special editions and updates could only get people so excited about it. The follow up had to be amazing, though, and Lamborghini’s answer was the Aventador. The design was an evolution of the Murcielago’s look, but under the skin, it was all-new. It also packed an all-new 700-horsepower V8 under the hood.
9. Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet
Clearly in need of something practical to drive, Mayweather made the sensible decision and bought a German-engineered Porsche 911. It is, after all, the kind of sports car you can drive every day without much compromise. Then again, the version Mayweather bought is a convertible that makes 520 horsepower and can hit 60 miles per hour in just over three seconds.
10. Rolls-Royce Phantom
Like the Veyron, Mayweather actually has quite a few Rolls-Royce Phantoms. It’s hard to blame him for wanting to be driven around in the car that defines luxury. Rolls-Royce will customize its cars any way a customer wants, with the only limitation being how much money the customer is willing to spend. For someone who loves to display how much money they’ve made, nothing reminds other people that you’ve made it — and they haven’t — like arriving in a Rolls-Royce Phantom.
