The 71-year-old still has many other antique cars, most of which are from Chevrolet (about 50) and regularly participate in auctions to buy more. Reggie Jackson has 25 cars at the main villa in Seaside, California, 6 at another home in Carmel and 25 at Monterey Airport. The Ferrari 275 GTB / 4 in his collection costs up to 20 million pounds. It is estimated that the total value of the 71-year-old veterans cars is about £ 50 million, topping the list of sports stars with respectable car collections according to The Sun.

However, in August, Mayweather had to sell this rare car for two million pounds at an auction to pay taxes. However, the heavyweight boxing champion still has a few Rolls-Royce’s, Ferrari and Bugatti, other super luxury cars.
