Speak about boxing these days, and Floyd Mayweather’s name is bound to be mentioned. The 41-year old American has a luxurious lifestyle, which he likes to show off, and is especially fond of the latest and greatest in four-wheel royalty.
He’s best known for owning, or having owned, some of the most expensive cars on the planet, including models from Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Ferrari and others, and an all-new Rolls-Royce Phantom joined his collection recently.
As usual, the professional boxer took it to social media, where he shared a video with the black-finished example with his 20 million Instagram followers. Mayweather took a tour of Rolls-Royce’s flagship sedan, revealing the lavish interior and making sure that everyone knows that it’s brand new, with just 10 miles (16 km) on the clock, and a birthday gift for himself.
We don’t know how much he paid for his new Phantom, but even the most basic model starts at around $500,000 in the United States. That’s without any options, and Mayweather’s has the starlight headliner fitted to his ride – which, we guess, won’t be the only extra…
A new twin-turbo 6.75-liter V12 powertrain making 563hp and 663lb-ft (900Nm) of torque resided in the engine bay. The unit is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, but despite its power, the new Phantom is all about opulence and driving in style. It’s also fitted with more than 286 lbs (130 kg) of sound insulation, which makes it “the most silent motor car in the world”, according to the manufacturer.
