Floyd Mayweather is the highest paid athlete in the entire world (and he can’t even read). We know this because there are articles constantly published about how much money Floyd Mayweather earns, and how much Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather spends. Floyd makes $250 MILLION per year, and with those massive earnings he rewards himself handsomely with the most lavish gifts imaginable. Case in point: Floyd Mayweather‘s latest purchase is a 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse carrying a price tag of $3,498,000.
Just yesterday our own Brandon Wenerd threw up a blog post about some bro explaining how expensive it is just to own a Bugatti. Before you even get to the $3,498,000 price tag of Floyd Mayweather’s 2015 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse let these few giblets of information set in for a moment:
-$30,000 for new tires. If you want to replace them over three times, you need to replace the rims for $120,000 because the wheels are glued to the rim.
-$20,000 for an oil change through the Bugatti maintenance.
Here are a few more photos of what the car looks like (screenshots from Bugatti’s website):
