This could become the most expensive Koenigsegg to ever sell at auction.
Having recently bragged about acquiring not one but two LaFerraris all for himself, it’s hard not to be envious of Floyd Mayweather’s extraordinary collection of exotic supercars. The legendary boxer is also famous for owning multiple Bugatti Veyrons, but by far the most expensive car he's ever owned is a 2010 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita originally bought for $4.8 million; one of only two examples in the world. And now it’s looking for a new wealthy owner, because it’s heading to auction.
Mayweather's CCXR Trevita is the only example Koenigsegg built for the US. Setting it apart is its intricate “Diamond Weave” carbon fiber body that “literally sparkles like millions of fine diamonds” when exposed to sunlight. Originally, Koenigsegg intended to produce three examples of the CCXR Trevita (Trevita being a Swedish abbreviation of “three whites”), but the complicated production process of the Diamond Weave body proved too difficult to replicate so only two rolled off the production line, making it one of the rarest Koenigseggs ever made. The CCXR Trevita also features a double carbon rear wing and a detachable hardtop that can be stored in the front trunk, so it can also double as a roadster.
Powering the rare Swedish hypercar 4.8-liter V8 all-aluminum engine with two superchargers that produces a whopping 1,018-horsepower and 796 lb-ft of torque through a unique six-speed transverse gearbox and a torque-sensitive limited-slip differential. Tipping the scales at just 2,821 pounds (1,280 kilograms), performance is blistering, to say the least: 0-62 mph takes 2.9 seconds while 0-124 mph is achieved in 8.7 seconds before reaching a top speed of over 250 mph. Stopping power is equally brutal thanks to carbon ceramic brakes at the front and rear axles. 0-124-0 mph takes 13 seconds, while 0-186-0 mph takes just 25.5 seconds.
Mecum Auctions will be selling Mayweather’s CCXR at the Monterey auction from August 16th to August 19th. There’s no estimate on how much it will fetch, but considering its rarity, celebrity connection, and low 1,947 mileage, don’t be surprised if it becomes the most expensive Koenigsegg to ever sell at auction. It's not very often you get the opportunity to own one of the rarest hypercars in the world.
