Back in June we reported that Floyd Mayweather was only CONSIDERING buying the super exclusive Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, but it looks like he finally pulled the trigger.
There’s no better way to enjoy a car capable of hitting 249 MPH better than creeping along at 5 MPH in a Las Vegas parking lot. According to Floyd Mayweather’s favorite car dealership in Las Vegas earlier yesterday (Aug. 27, 2015) along with numerous reports, it looks like Floyd Mayweather took the time to show up at his boxing gym during one of his training sessions with three Bugatti Veyrons, a Ferrari 458 Italia and his newly purchased Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. It looks like if you sit on a car and think about it long enough, sooner or later you’re going to buy it! Check out a couple of tweets as well as Floyd’s personal post announcing his acquisition below.
At a reported $4.8 million sticker price, the Koenigsegg cost Moneymaker a pretty penny but consider that it only took less than 60 seconds of actual fight time for Mayweather to pay it off. That’s according to his last fight with Manny Pacquiao which saw the 38-year-old fighter earning $4,994,681 per minute of action for a total of $179,808,511 at the end of the night. Suffice to say, Floyd could manage to blow a couple of million on some shiny new toys.
In a fight that’s heralded to be his last, Mayweather is training for his fight against Andre Berto which is set to go down Sept. 12. Despite the outcome, it looks like Floyd Mayweather is poised to earn a cool $35 million, a lot less than his fight for Pacquiao. But Mayweather has bills to pay and cars to buy, so fight on!
