Duplicate sets of cars

Floyd Mayweather, Jr's carsSo there’s a boxer. His name is Floyd Mayweather, Jr. He has two identical sets of cars — a white set in Las Vegas and a black set in Miami. Each set includes a Bentley, a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, a Ferrari and an unknown fourth car. My guess on the total value (and there may be more than four cars) is about $2 million. Somehow it’s not the money spent that bothers me. It’s the identical-but-different-color aspect.

Of course I’m thinking of how one man has all those opulent and amazing cars, and how the money could have been spent on a slightly better education for kids in either city. Or how some kids in Africa might not die because they have clean water.

But somehow I mostly think of what a strange thing is is to have two identical-but-different-color sets of cars.

  1. The color thing is interesting. Maybe it’s so he can remember where he is when he’s driving.

    I’ve long thought that it would be neat to have a fully stocked house in, say, Colombia that I could visit whenever I want with a minimum of luggage. Back in 1990–1991, the Bendor-Samuelses owned the trailer next to ours at the ILC and also a house in England. They spent several months at at time in each place.
