What Floyd Mayweather wants, he usually gets … but in the case of an ultra-rare Maybach — he’s gonna have to outbid another wealthy celebrity!!
Sources close to Floyd tell us he’s in the hunt to purchase a 2009 Maybach 62S Landaulet — which features a V12 Twin Turbo Engine with 620 horsepower.
The owner of the car is famed high-end car dealer Obi Okeke — aka Dr. Bugatti — who tells TMZ Sports his ride is one of only 8 ever produced in the world.
Of those 8 in existence, only 3 are in the United States. We’re told the other 2 cars in the U.S. belong to Drake and DJ Khaled.
When the car was released, the sticker price was $1.35 million — and a Maybach spokesperson says the target buyer is “a superrich individual who wants something that is extremely extraordinary and enjoys being driven in a car with acres of sky above them.”
… which is likely why Floyd wants one so badly!
Okeke is asking for $2.6 million … or best offer.
The issue, we’re told, is there’s a bidding war going down behind-the-scenes between Floyd and another major celebrity — a high-profile rap star.
We’re told the bidding is already over $2 million … and it’s still active.
Floyd has made close to a billion dollars in fight money and he LOVES cars … so you’d think he’d just pony up whatever it takes to close the deal.
But, we’re told Floyd is waiting to see where the rapper draws the line … so he can come in slightly above and not pay a cent more than he needs to.
Long story short … seems like Floyd is ultimately going to get the car and the rapper is going to have to see if Drake or DJ Khaled are willing to make a deal.
