Miami Body Shop to Replace Floyd Mayweather’s Jeep That Burned to a Crisp
Besides being an incredible boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is also well known for his extensive collection of luxury cars, but just last week, four of his premium vehicles somehow ended up catching fire inside of a trailer headed to Florida, and were damaged beyond repair.

Police said nobody was harmed in the fire, and TMZ reported that the cause of the fire is still unknown. The vehicles that Mayweather lost in the blaze were two Rolls-Royces, a Bentley, and a custom Jeep.
The first vehicle that the undefeated boxer decided to replace is his Jeep Wrangler.
The project of providing Mayweather with a new custom Jeep Wrangler is being handled by Alex Vega and The Auto Firm in Miami, which is the same body shop that recently hooked up New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes with his customized three-wheeled Polaris Slingshot.
The Auto Firm recently shared a picture via Instagram of Vega standing with the 38-year-old boxer. “I promise you all, this will be the BADDEST ride in Mayweather’s entire car fleet… Stay tuned, and bring out the popcorn cause it’s gonna be a movie,” wrote Vega in the caption accompanying the photo.

Mayweather already owns a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita valued at approximately $4.8 million, so Vega and his team definitely have their work cut out for them.
