Video: Floyd "Money" Mayweather Shows Off His Vegas Car Collection
Fresh off of disposing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in one of the most clinical displays of boxing you’ll ever see, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is back to living large like nobody else can.
He pocketed a cool $41.5 million as his fight purse alone, and that number is expected to hit anywhere from $85 to $100 million when all is said and done. So yeah, the nickname fits the man, so they say.
Mayweather’s status as one of the richest athletes in the world also affords him some nice luxuries, one of which he proudly displayed during the recent build-up to the Alvarez fight.
Over in his Las Vegas home, Mayweather has a pretty sick car collection. It’s not sick because of the quantity. It’s sick because of the quality of machines he has inside his Vegas property. Oh, and they’re all white too, which has become a color of choice whenever Mayweather is shopping for a new set of wheels.
Take a look at the collection and tell us you’re not impressed. There’s a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 599 GTB, a Ferrari 458 Spyder, a Rolls-Royce Drophead, a Bentley Mulsanne, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Bugatti Veyron, and his personal favorite, a 1996 Mercedes S600 V12 sedan, which we assume was his first car after turning pro in 1996. In case your head is spinning just trying to tally up the rough total of those cars, it is somewhere between $3.5 and $4 million, depending on the years and the options on each car.
But the best part about Money May’s extravagant car collection? It’s not the only one he has. He’s got one in Miami, Los Angeles, and God knows where else.
That’s how you collect in style, fellas.
