Floyd Mayweather recently purchased the second of a planned production run of three CCXR Trevitas that Koenigsegg has created for hyper-rich buyers. The name Trevita translates to “three whites,” representing Koenigsegg’s unique coating solution that turns traditional black carbon-fiber weave into what it calls a sparkling, silvery white.

Billed as a “hypercar” — supposedly superior to a supercar — it was the 38-year-old’s chosen mode of transport for his journey to the Mayweather Boxing Club Wednesday for his latest training session ahead of his September 12 fight against Andre Berto at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“It’s a stunning visual effect and one that Koenigsegg is unlikely to ever produce again, ensuring the exclusivity of the ‘three whites’ forever,” the company revealed in a statement.

The car features an AMG-based twin-supercharged 4.8-liter V-8 engine that kicks out 1,018 horsepower, more than enough to propel the sleek 2,822-pound machine to hyper-legal speeds on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Trevita can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 254 mph.

Christian von Koenigsegg began building bespoke sports cars in 1994, and his company has earned a niche in the automotive world despite extremely limited production numbers.

Koenigsegg’s popularity among car cognoscenti expanded exponentially when the CCX model was featured on the popular English television program “Top Gear.” When the show’s mysterious test driver known as “The Stig” suffered a high-speed spin while making a timed run in the CCX in 2006, Koenigsegg added a rear spoiler, and the revised machine set a new record for the “Top Gear” test track.

The Trevita is Koenigsegg’s most radical ride yet — perfect for a flamboyant character like Mayweather, who is so proud of his new acquisition that he shared details with the world on Instagram.

One thing is for certain: If Mayweather’s taste in cars continues to occupy the $5 million bracket, he’ll have to go to work in the ring more often.
