Different elite athletes often spend real fortunes to have the best cars, watches, clothing and other accessories. It is enough to check the social networks of the protagonists to find luxuries that are exclusive. And if there is a completely eccentric personality who does not mind paying a large sum of dollars in order to achieve something unique, it's Floyd Mayweather. On this occasion, the boxer who is still active and plans his return for the next few months, wants to acquire an impressive car that is so exclusive that there are only eight models in the world and that neither Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo have it.
In this case, the fighter is fighting at auction to buy a 2009 Maybach 62S Landaulet. According to TMZ, Obi Okeke, who owns a luxurious dealership and who mediates most of Flody's auto purchases, valued it at $ 2.6 million since there are only eight cars on the entire planet. Of all of them, two are already stationed in the United States in the garages of music figures like Drake and DJ Khaled.
The seller's emissaries argue that the vehicle is for "a super wealthy individual looking for something extremely ordinary and who enjoys driving a car that few in the world can afford." Basically, the purchase is to demonstrate the individual financial power that Floyd Mayweather wields in his life.
But the problem that the boxer has been facing is that another famous rapper - whose identity was not disclosed - seeks to acquire the Maybach and both are in a "bidding war", constantly increasing the number, according to The Sun. But knowing the personality of the undefeated champion, he will bid for the car whatever is necessary to finally have it in his hands and be able to show it on his social networks.
The exclusive vehicle features a V12 Twin Turbo engine with 620 horsepower for a large body. Maybach is the luxury brand of Mercedes Benz and when this edition was launched it was not said how many units were going to see the light. Among other details that it has, the seats have electrical regulation, heating and ventilation, as well as a massage function for the lumbar area. It also has two LCD screens and a small refrigerator.
