Floyd Mayweather Bought an Ultra-Rare Car for $4.8 Million
If you’re wondering about the latest in luxury, look no further than the social media pages of Floyd Mayweather. The retired undefeated boxing champ has made hundreds of millions of dollars during his career. And to celebrate his good fortune, he regularly purchases luxury items, many of which he flaunts on Instagram. With a 50-0 record and several exhibition wins, he has earned the right to reward himself for his success. And the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, a rare hypercar most people have never heard of, was once a highlight of Mayweather’s collection.
The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita at a glance
The Koenigsegg CCX (of which the CCXR Trevita is a variant) is a limited-edition model produced by Koenigsegg Automotive AB. It was initially designed as a concept car that could meet emissions standards in various markets, and it runs on ethanol fuel. Unveiled in 2006, the initial production run lasted until 2010 and gained accolades for its exterior design from publications such as Forbes.
The CCXR Trevita’s exterior beauty is partly due to a proprietary coated fiber solution that makes the car a silvery-white that sparkles. “Trevita” is Swedish for “three whites,” and its shimmering diamond-weave bodywork makes this hypercar stand out. Koenigsegg initially planned to make three of these, but perfecting the car’s appearance proved difficult. Thus, the automaker produced only two.
Not many details about the 2010 CCXR Trevita are still publicly available. It produces 1,018 hp and 797 lb-ft of torque at 7,000 rpm. In addition, it can roar from 0 to 62 mph in a searing 2.9 seconds, reach 124 mph in 8.8 seconds, and hit speeds up to 249 mph. It also features carbon-ceramic brakes, an F1 paddle-shift gearbox, an Inconel exhaust system, and a hydraulic lifting system.
Floyd Mayweather’s Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita isn’t the only impressive car in his collection
Of course, a rarity such as the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita found a home in Floyd Mayweather’s garage. He not only boasts exclusive luxury items like the largest Chanel bag, but he also owns a bevy of rare sports cars that put many other wealthy collectors’ car collections to shame.
Among his prized possessions are two Bugatti Veyron supercars, a handmade Bentley Mulsanne, and a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, a vehicle popular with star athletes. Mayweather also owns two Ferrari convertibles, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, and multiple Rolls-Royce models. According to some estimates, his car collection is worth a cool $40 million.
When Mayweather bought his Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, the other model went to Hans Thomas Gross. A multimillionaire himself, Gross is an Austrian entrepreneur known for his erstwhile romance with socialite Paris Hilton. However, Gross made his name as the founder of Runningball AG, a company that provides the online sports betting industry with real-time data. He’s worth an estimated $200 million.
1 Trevita changed hands
Mayweather originally purchased his Koenigsegg Trevita for $4.8 million, Gizmodo reported. A hefty sum, to be sure. But that’s peanuts to a fighter who made an estimated $100 million from his recent exhibition against YouTuber Logan Paul and $1 billion throughout his career, The U.S. Sun reported.
So, considering his enormous wealth, you might not be too disappointed to learn that the Trevita, which the boxer put up for auction, sold for only $2.6 million, according to CNBC. With his boxing earnings and various business ventures — including his promotion company, skate park, and real estate holdings — he probably barely noticed the loss.
Mayweather’s Trevita found its way into the inventory of iLusso, a rare hypercar dealer. iLusso has offered the hypercar for lease and sale in recent years. But although a photo of the famed Koenigsegg model (with just 3,100 miles on it) remains on the dealer’s website, it’s marked sold. The lucky buyer didn’t announce the purchase with a press release, but one thing’s for sure: That person has piles of cash.
