11 Cars Mike Tyson Used To Own Vs 11 From Floyd Mayweather's Collection

Mike Tyson is one of the most polarizing figures to ever come out of sports entertainment, and especially the boxing world. At one point Tyson was the highest paid athlete in all of the sport, and with all of that money had to come a pretty radical car collection. Mike Tyson had expensive tastes when it came to exotic luxury cars, and his collection spanned across all different makes and models from the rare Jaguar supercar to common vehicles such as the Mercedes-Benz SLK roadster which Tyson shared in common with his best friend Tupac Shakur.

Mike Tyson was around at a time when there was no social media, and when he would spend real big amounts of money on exotic luxuries such as pet tigers and supercars that he had dreamed about as a child.

Floyd “Money” Mayweather is one of the most decorated veterans to ever step foot into a featherweight boxing ring, and his net worth has skyrocketed tremendously in the last few decades which has lead room for Floyd to increase his car collection as well. The notable boxer has placed a tremendous amount of value on his all-white car collection, and Floyd is the owner to many rare vehicles including the one of a kind Bugatti Veyron.

Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather are different individuals completely, but both men are very ostentatious when it comes to their selection of vehicles and it is interesting to see how Tyson's past collection adds up to Floyd's current collection.

We’re told that upon entering the big leagues and getting his first championship Mike Tyson’s team got him a gold 1985 Cadillac Eldorado. For a kid who came up with nothing at a time when boxing was just getting exciting again, this was a big thing.

The 1985 Cadillac Eldorado was at one point one of the quintessential luxury coupes that were on the market, and being the young Tyson’s first vehicle this was a momentous time for the young boxer who was just getting ready to hit his pinnacle.

It's said early on in his career that Mike Tyson was given a matching 1985 Cadillac Seville to match the Eldorado as well. Both cars were at one point the pinnacle of luxury when it came to the modern luxury sedan and coupe, and thus Tyson’s impeccable taste for expensive vehicles began to blossom.

There is nothing standard about the 1985 Cadillac Seville, and the model continues to be a popular choice on the used car market as well for young enthusiasts who want to see the stellar products that Cadillac at one point offered.

Upon his release from jail Mike Tyson was hotter than ever, and as such he began to spend overtly. From an extravagant mansion to a collection of exotic luxury cars, there was not one product that Mike Tyson left out.

The championship boxer was often seen driving his Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, which at one point was one of the most highly sought after and very exclusive Rolls-Royce models on the market. These cars still hold their value very well, and it's not uncommon to still see celebrities owning these models.

19 Rolls-Royce Corniche (Tyson’s Car)

Also known for being a one of a kind exotic car that people tend to drool over, the Rolls-Royce Corniche was a very popular celebrity machine during the nineties as well. We like how the model offered a unique model twist on a classic design, and of course, Mr. Tyson was one of the people who went out and got one new.

The Rolls-Royce Corniche was an exotic car that was revered by all kinds of celebrity clientele during its heyday, which is partly why Tyson was so in love with the beautiful car.

18 1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560SL (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

There was no denying that Tyson had a deep friendship with rapper Tupac Shakur, so much so that the two men shared the same love for a specific car, and that was the 1989 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class 560SL.

Featured in many of Tupac's lyrics and music videos, the Mercedes was the ultimate sign that the singer had made it in the world. Tyson also came from a rough background and got himself the same car as the rapper, which the two were both quite fond and proud of at the same time.

17 1995 Ferrari F50 (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

The nineties were a popular time to own an exotic car, and the 1995 Ferrari F50 was one of the more popular options at a time when speed was just becoming a fashion point. Nevermind the fact that many of these exotic cars never leave their owner's garage, the 1995 Ferrari F50 was the quintessential road warrior and Mike Tyson was said to have bought two Ferrari models at the same time in a package deal.

The boxer had so much money that he didn’t know what to do with it, similar to the modern day Floyd Mayweather.

16 Ferrari 456 GT Spyder (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

Said to have been purchased in a package deal for the boxer, the Ferrari 456 GT Spyder was a part of the package deal that Tyson had purchased which involved two Ferrari models.

The Ferrari 456 GT Spyder is another scary fast car that was designed to bring track proven performance to the roads, and the car does it well. Mike Tyson was proud of his Ferrari 456 GT Spyder, which was also one of the many convertible models that Tyson had owned during his prime time as a boxing champion.

15 Lamborghini Super Diablo Twin Turbo (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

Toward the end of his career Mike Tyson was running out of money, and without a proper manager to help control his spending the legendary boxer continued to buy expensive exotic cars.

One of the final vehicles that Tyson purchased was the limited edition Lamborghini Super Diablo Twin Turbo, which in itself is one of the rarest and fastest production cars that ever left a Lamborghini factory. The Lamborghini Super Diablo Twin Turbo was indeed a rare car, and we think that Floyd Mayweather would buy it as well.

14 1997 Bentley Continental T (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

The Bentley brand has been rising in popularity for some time now, and during the nineties, rap stars and Mike Tyson were some of the biggest customers that the renowned luxury brand had.

The 1997 Bentley Continental T was a success in many aspects for the company, offering fun to drive and luxurious car that cemented the Bentley reputation for quality and assurance. The 1997 Bentley Continental T has lived on for many years as one of the most popular models to roll out of a Bentley production line.

13 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

During the earlier parts of the new millennium Mike Tyson was burning money at a rapid rate, and the 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster was another race car that the boxer decided to buy himself.

When you talk about one of the rarest exotic cars to ever roam the earth the 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster is a true mix of performance and pure luxury. In terms of performance, the 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster is among the fastest production Lamborghini models that have ever been manufactured.

12 Jaguar XJ220 (Tyson’s Car)

Via: Bing

Originally regarded as the fastest production car in the world during the nineties until it was overtaken by the McLaren F1, the Jaguar XJ220 was a beautiful and very rare supercar that was designed by a group of designers who wanted to create something truly special.

The Jaguar XJ220 has been extremely rare and features one of the smoothest running V6 engines in the world, and since the car has exploded in value we can only assume that Mike Tyson might be upset that he gave the car up.

11 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC Coupe (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

One of the cool things about Floyd's collection of vehicles is the fact that he has focused on creating a collection that is all white, similar to how rapper Tyga has done as well. The 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC Coupe is a two-door that has been making the rounds for some time now, and with its Ferrari powered performance and signature styling who could blame it.

Floyd Mayweather has a taste for expensive vehicles, and the 2018 Maserati GranTurismo MC Coupe is just another notch in his already impressive belt.

10 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach S 650 Base (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Mercedes is not one to be left out of the big car market, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach S 650 Base is a fine testament to how the brand continues to improve on their flagship luxury sedan. Floyd Mayweather has an expensive taste when it comes to luxury cars and exotics, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach S 650 Base is one of the more refined choices that the superstar athlete has chosen.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz Maybach S 650 Base still manages to be a pinnacle in the automotive industry, and we think Tyson would choose the S650 as well.

9 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 AMG S 65 RWD Coupe (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

In addition to his beautiful Maybach sedan, Floyd Mayweather is also the proud owner of a 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 AMG S 65 RWD Coupe, a car that is known for its spirited driving characteristics and one of a kind styling.

Many in the automotive community have said that Mercedes-Benz has lost its way in the roadster market, but take one look at the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG S 65 AMG S 65 RWD Coupe and you will be greeted by a one of a kind vehicle that was designed exclusively with the driver in mind.

8 2018 Bentley Flying Spur W12 S (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Floyd Mayweather is like a modern-day Mike Tyson in many aspects, one of those many aspects is the fact that the superstar boxer likes to flaunt his money and show off his success. The Bentley is obviously one of the most popular exotic cars to flaunt, and the 2018 Bentley Flying Spur W12 S is the newest in the long line of legendary Bentley models that have made their way onto the market.

Floyd Mayweather loves cars that are both luxurious and offer a good range performance, which the Flying Spur does in style and substance.

7 2018 Rolls-Royce Wraith (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Another popular exotic car that has been making its way around the celebrity community is the 2018 Rolls-Royce Wraith, which is the long-awaited replacement for the Phantom.

We like everything that the Wraith has to offer, from the long signature nose to the light up stars that are throughout the interior roof of the car. The 2018 Rolls-Royce Wraith is said to be the newest addition to Floyd's all-white collection of cars, and we have to say that the Wraith is a stellar choice.

6 2018 Bentley Mulsanne Speed (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

The Bentley brand has come a long way in the last decade in terms of offering heart-pounding performance and stellar styling, and the 2018 Bentley Mulsanne Speed is another vehicle that builds on this stellar reputation.

The 2018 Bentley Mulsanne Speed has a new exterior styling that really separates the vehicle from the previous models in the Bentley line, and we really like how the model has come along. Floyd Mayweather has a beautiful 2018 Bentley Mulsanne Speed in his collection, and we think that Tyson would approve of this car as well.

5 2018 Rolls-Royce Ghost (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Perhaps one of the most famous luxury cars of all time, the 2018 Rolls-Royce Ghost is a trendsetting car that has been flying off of dealership lots for some time now. The Ghost came onto the scene as a full-featured Rolls-Royce that looked to attract a younger clientele, and the car did it quite well.

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Ghost that Floyd Mayweather owns is a signature vehicle in his all-white collection, and we can only assume if Mike Tyson was still at his prime, he would choose a Ghost model as well.

4 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Not to be left out, the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom is another well-known luxury sedan that has been making the rounds for some time now. With the Phantom, you have one of the most well known Rolls-Royce vehicles on the market and one that has been around for a decade now and improves with every new feature.

Mike Tyson had his own collection of Rolls-Royce models during his heyday, and the 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom is a reflection of the great cars that the brand offered in the past.

3 2019 Land Rover Range Rover (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Of course, no all-white car collection would be complete without the Range Rover, which has been a staple of luxurious car collections for some time now. The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is one of the more low-key vehicles in the Floyd Mayweather collection, and for the most part, he hasn't been seen driving this one a whole lot.

The Range Rover has always been a car that you can take wherever you want, and it offered a good amount of standard features and luxury for what you get. We think that Mike Tyson would approve of the current generation of Range Rover, back in the day Tyson had more than a few Range Rover models.

2 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

Also known as being one of the more exclusive cars on the roster, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a full-featured large sedan that even Mike Tyson owned at one point back in the nineties.

What makes the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class unique is the fact that Mercedes has poured millions into revamping the car to keep it competitive with a flurry of new large luxury sedan options. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is among the top flight in large luxury sedans, and we can’t help but be impressed by Floyd's taste in cars.

1 2017 Aston Martin Rapide S (Floyd’s Car)

Via: Bing

We love the Aston Martin brand, from the beautiful shape and style of the two-door sports cars to the naturally aspirated performance that the brand is famous for. The 2017 Aston Martin Rapide S is a step above what you might have come to expect out of an exotic two-door, and we can’t blame Floyd for wanting to improve his already impressive collection of cars.

From the jaw-dropping beautiful design to the signature performance, the 2017 Aston Martin Rapide S is a beautiful mix of luxury and style.
