No, it's not Floyd Mayweather.
When you hear about a boxer owning a supercar, you probably think Floyd Mayweather. But boxing has been around long before the time of Money May, and those who came before him also had a taste for expensive cars. George Foreman was one of the greatest heavyweight boxers ever, and the year he retired from fighting he bought a Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster. Now his ’97 Diablo is up for sale, with Mecum expecting it to fetch between $285,000 and $325,000. The car has only been owned by Foreman and has just 1,907 miles on it.
According to Mecum, only 66 VT Diablo Roadsters were made in 1997, which undoubtedly adds to the valuation of this vehicle. In addition to buying an all-wheel-drive supercar with a 5.7-liter V12 engine making 492 horsepower, the winner of this auction will also get a ton of Foreman memorabilia. This includes a signed George Foreman Grill (seriously), signed boxing gloves and a framed picture and ticket stub from the infamous “Rumble in the Jungle” fight where Foreman was knocked out by none other than Muhammad Ali. Although the boxing memorabilia is cool we think the greatest thing about winning this auction is the fact that this Lamborghini has an awesome gated five-speed manual.
