Mayweather sells his Ferrari Enzo at Sotheby’s auction for $3.3 million

Floyd Mayweather has many obsessions and one of these is collecting hypercars that some people can only dream of having. It has been revealed that the five-division world champion sold his Ferrari Enzo tat RM Sotheby’s for a staggering $3.3 million.

When the Ferrari Enzo was first released back in 2002, Luca di Montezemolo said that it was going to become the brand's historic car for a number of reasons. Montezemolo added that the name chosen had to be very significant yet symbolic hence the reason for using that of the company's founder.

Montezemolo shares that with its V12 5998 cc engine, the F1 gearbox, and the use of carbon materials, Ferrari Enzo gets the best combination of the brand's four consecutive F1 Championships.

The race track has long been the greatest source of technology that makes any car unique and the Ferrari Enzo not simply represents the company's past and present but also gives glimpse of its future. For an exclusive experience, only 399 units were manufactured.

Going back to the matter, it is not surprising that the boxer planned to auction one of his cars considering that the way he buys them, it is more surprising to see how he manages to have enough space for each one. The Money Team though recently released a video showing the extent of his collection and how he does in fact find room for his collection.

The last time Mayweather was in the news related to cars was when he bought a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita valued at $4.8 million. One of the interesting features about this car is that when light hits it, it gives of a sparkle similar to that of diamonds. If you combine it with a carbon fiber weave bodywork, it is no wonder why this car comes at a hefty price tag.

Trevita is an abbreviation of Swedish words which roughly translates to three whites. Koenigsegg has long been known worldwide for its perfection and the uniqueness of its carbon weave body work. Currently it has managed to use classic black carbon fibres. The company however is always finding new ways and coming up with new technologies. Its latest discovery is The Koenigsegg Proprietary Diamond Weave.

With its very own method, the company has managed to coat the fibers with a diamond finish. This process was developed at its Angelholm Sweden headquarters. The company initially used small quantities for the fiber treatment before processing it fully on the prepreg material. Only three units of the CCXR Trevitas have been made, thus the name. As such it also joins the company's family cars as one of its rarest.

All of the three units have the Koenigsegg Shimmering Diamond Weave bodywork and the double carbon wing. They also come equipped with a paddle-shift, an inconell exhaust system, hydraulic lifting system, and the carbon ceramic brakes with an anti-brake system. For the interior, it has the standard tyre monitoring system, chrono instrument cluster, infotainment system, and of course the airbags.
