Look at the Breathtaking Cars Mike Tyson Bought Just to Prove He is the Very Best
Aspiring boxers around the world look up to Mike Tyson as one of those legendary boxers who defied all odds and emerged as perhaps the best boxer this world has ever seen. Indeed, Tyson came from a very rough family background, growing up in the Brooklyn area of New York. But luckily, he was great at boxing and that too at a time when the boxing industry was at the peak of its popularity.
Through grit and sweat, Tyson came to be known as the very best, and over the course of his career managed to earn a whopping $400 million, emerging among the highest paid boxers in the history of this sport. Of course, such income allowed Tyson to acquire whatever he wanted, and indeed he started spending on luxuries which we can only experience in our wildest dreams.
Particularly impressive is the car collection that Tyson has been able to develop over the years. Reportedly, some of the cars which Tyson purchased were inspired by the choices of a very close friend of his, musician Tupac Shakur. Let’s take a look at some of these beautiful cars.
A 1985 Cadillac Eldorado
Only the best for the best! This car was reportedly given as a gift to Tyson after he emerged successful in securing a championship belt for himself. And the car came in an all-gold color, reportedly to match the color of the belt he had won.
A specialty of the 1985 Cadillac Eldorado is that there haven’t come any authentic full-sized coupes after it, making it a novelty in anyone’s garage. Of course, Tyson eventually went on to more advanced cars, but the fact that he owned this classic beauty is definitely worth a mention.
The Rolls-Royce Silver Spur
With his improving financial condition, Tyson upgraded his tastes and starting going for the really luxurious cars, and nothing defined luxury back in the 90s than the Rolls-Royce Silver Spur. According to reports, even Suge Knight, the hip-hop legend, used to own this car, which meant it was considered as the symbol of success. With an impressive V8 engine and an interior that defines luxury, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Tyson could be seen driving around in it very often.
The 1995 Ferrari F50
This one came after Tyson had served his prison sentence and had gotten back into the game. A very fine car to have come out of Italy, the Ferrari was a rare breed in the US and having one showed one’s preference for exclusivity. Although most of his vehicle purchases had been on the high end, the Ferrari F50 must’ve cost him the most, that’s for sure.
The 2000 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster
Unfortunately, the Lamborghini Diablo came into Tyson’s life around the same time that his career had started to dip. But we bet he did not regret it one bit, purchasing the super-rare blue model of the vehicle. Even today, after around two decades, this car is able to command immense respect in the automobile community for its powerful engine and timeless design.
