Mayweather brags about buying a pair of LaFerraris before McGregor fight

Article by Christian A., on July 17, 2017

Many people wish to own at least one sports car sometime in their lives. But there are those lucky ones who don’t just have one of them. In fact, we know a couple of people who collect sports cars. But they usually don’t make these purchases sound like they’re getting candy from a store. Well, Floyd Mayweather had recently said that he bought not just one Ferrari LaFerrari. Rather, he got a pair.

There have been a lot of hype lately with Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor’s upcoming fight. Both guys have been throwing a lot of trash talking toward each other, while traveling the world. In one of their face-to-face confrontations, they got the crowd cheering and chanting. After this confrontation, there was a video of Mayweather that was published by FightHype wherein he had a check worth $100 million. In the same video, he bragged that he had just purchased two LaFerraris, one in white while the other is red.

As mentioned earlier, Mayweather is one of the biggest car collectors out there, being the owner of a Bugatti Veyron, Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, and a few Rolls-Royces. So it should not be a surprise that he got himself a pair of LaFerraris. But what will he do with both?

Ferrari enthusiasts would probably frown at what the boxer said because there are no white LaFerraris that come straight from the factory, except if these are custom finished. And if you have been following him, Mayweather’s collections are all in the white shade. So far, no one has seen the cars he claimed to have purchased. So we do not know whether he just said that to make himself look good, but that $100 million check certainly proves that he can afford two.

If this news is valid, then we should see photos of them soon enough on one of the social media platforms.

The Ferrari LaFerrari is limited to only 500 examples, and two of those will go to the boxer if his claims are real. This makes him the first person on Earth to own two La Ferraris. And each one of those has a price tag of around £1 million. Ferrari’s first hybrid model is powered by a 6.3 liter V12 engine that works with an electric motor. It has a top speed of 350 kilometers per hour, and in under 3 seconds, it is able to sprint from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour.
