Floyd Mayweather has splashed out $4.8 million (Dh17.6m) on a new limited edition super auto (or “hyper car” as he prefers to call it). And with this money, Mayweather has gone out and purchased an incredibly rare Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, which was actually listed on duPontREGISTRY.com (View Listing).
Mayweather posted a picture of himself on Instagram sitting on the bonnet of the silver NZ$7m Swedish Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita supercar.
“KOENIGSEGG Is An ULTRA Boutique Automobile Manufacturer For The Super Rich“, he added. Appropriately, there are only two Trevitas in the world (because we’re guessing that the market for a almost $5 million auto is small).
Koenigsegg have produced just two Trevita cars and Mayweather has his hands on the second.
Mirror said that with this recent purchase Mayweather is certainly living up to his nickname “The Money”.
The vehicle maker is from Sweden.
Mayweather, who beat Manny Pacquiao in May in what was billed as the “Fight of the Century”, will risk his WBC and WBA welterweight world titles against the power-punching, two-time welterweight world champion Berto (30-3) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The boxer is known to be a lover of cars.
Last July, he gave one of his proteges an expensive ride as a gift.
According to Forbes, in June, Mayweather had recorded $300 million in earnings during the past 12 months. Maybe it was also a way of showing his protege that he appreciates him, especially after Theophane won five straight fights.
