Floyd Mayweather Jr. has a fleet of remarkable supercars and he is selling off the pair of Bugatti Veyrons which he had bought together in 2016.
Being a champion fighter has its share of advantages. To begin with, it makes you filthy rich. $650 million in worth to be precise if you take the case of Floyd Mayweather Jr. And he had blown off 10 percent of that money in April 2016 to buy a pair of Bugatti Veyrons. Now, those two cars for which he had shelled out a whopping $6.5 million a year ago, have been listed for sale.
Arizona’s Luxury Auto Collection will be taking care of job of selling off the 2011 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport and 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse on behalf of Floyd Mayweather.
The Satin White Grand Sport with White/Red interiors has run for 1,650 miles. The seller description reads:

The seller description for the second car – the Satin Black Grand Sport Vitesse – is fancier.
"Previously owned by undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., this car is finished in a beautiful Satin Black with Exposed Carbon Fiber with a Black and Orange leather interior. Current on all services, this Bugatti is powered by a W16 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged engine producing up to 1,200hp. It has a top speed is 254 mph, with a 0 to 60 time of 2.4 seconds. With only 150 Grand Sports built worldwide, and this car was one of the last Grand Sports brought to the US this is an extremely rare opportunity to own a piece of automotive and boxing history.

The Grand Vitesse wasn’t driven quite as much as the Grand Sport, with the former’s odometer reading 1,041 miles.
Priced at $2,450,000 and $3,950,000 respectively, the Veyrons won’t be finding it difficult to find new homes. Having an ownership history which includes a celebrity name that reads “Floyd Mayweather Jr” itself is going to prompt lots of people to part with their millions.
As for Mayweather, he is well-known for his lavish lifestyle and for his impressive collection of supercars including a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a Lamborghini Aventador and a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita.
