Floyd Mayweather’s nickname is Money, which is apt when you consider his tastes in luxury vehicles. His fancy car fetish is so extreme that one Las Vegas dealership, Towbin Motorcars, has sold over 100 cars to Mayweather—which he paid for with cold hard cash.
Among the vehicles Mayweather purchased from Towbin Motorcars include 16 Rolls-Royces and three Bugattis. It’s no wonder that they literally open their doors all hours of the day for the boxer, who has been known to make late-night shopping trips at dealerships across the country.
Outrageous stories of Mayweather’s car love abound. An exotic-car dealer in Los Angeles with the nickname of Dr. Bugatti was tasked by Mayweather to deliver a Bugatti Veyron to his Las Vegas mansion in 12 hours. Dr. Bugatti was able deliver in 11.
Dr. Bugatti, whose real name is Obi Okeke, estimates that he’s sold 39 vehicles to Mayweather at a combined total of $6.2 million.
“He will call me on cars that are $500,000 and up. $1 million, $2 million, $3 million, that’s when I’ll get the call,” said Okeke. “I sold him a lot of [Rolls-Royces], and I sold him a lot of Bentleys. I don’t know if a franchised dealer is willing to do what I do. I don’t know if a franchised dealer is going to be able to take the phone calls in the middle of the night. I don’t know if they’re going to be able to open up their showroom in the middle of the night for him.”
“I try to give him service that nobody else will provide,” he added.
Certainly Mayweather, who stands to earn as much as $180 million in his highly anticipated matchup with Manny Pacquiao this weekend, can afford such luxuries. Currently, his estimated worth is $420 million, which seems like enough money for Money to spend on many more high-end vehicles.
