Famed fighter Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is as well known for his automotive bling as he is for his championship titles, as E3 Spark Plugs noted a few months ago. According to one of his few dealers of choice, Josh "Chop" Towbin, who owns Towbin Motorcars in Las Vegas, Mayweather has purchased well more than 100 ultrahigh-end rides from the dealership, including nearly 20 Rolls Royces. But just like the Regular Joe, the guy has a bad day now and then.
One of those bad days happened earlier this week when a trailer transporting Mayweather’s Bentley, two Rolls Royce Whips and a highly customized Jeep caught fire, burning all four rides to a (very expensive) crisp. The trailer had left Miami and was headed to Vegas when trouble started just outside of Phoenix, Arizona around 1:30 am on Oct. 7.
The good news is that there were no injuries. And considering that Mayweather’s estimated net worth is upward $400 million, we’re guessing he’ll recover nicely.
