Floyd Mayweather reportedly just dropped $3.5 Million on a downpayment for a 2017 Bugatti Chiron.

The Bugatti Chiron (the successor to the Bugatti Veyron) hasn’t even been announced as a production car but it looks like if you have enough money, Bugatti won’t exactly say no. According to TMZ Sports on their report earlier this week, the pound for pound champ went on a little shopping spree that included getting his boys down at Fusion Luxury Motors to pull a couple of strings for him. That favor was to get on the shortlist for a 2017 Bugatti Chiron when it makes it’s official debut. That debut is rumored to be during the 2016 Geneva Motor show in March.

Floyd Mayweather, in addition to owning other fine exotic vehicles, is also the owner of three Bugatti Veyrons. Suffice to say, he isn’t exactly a stranger to the brand. Mayweather’s recently been in the news for pulling the trigger on a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. He paid $4.8 million for that Swedish supercar.
When it you add it all up, it wasn’t a question if it’s possible for Mayweather to buy a Chiron, but a matter of time.
The Bugatti Chiron carries on where the Veyron left off. That means reestablishing itself as the absolute king of the hypercar world. 288 MPH is the final goal. Propelling this hunk of carbon fiber and titanium will be a 8.0-liter W16 with quad turbos boosted to the tune of 1500 HP through all four wheels. A special hybrid powertrain will provide added propulsion later on.
Move aside McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 because once the Chiron hits the market, no car will come close to touching this beast. Hopefully someone prods Floyd to gave it a good caning once in a while.
