Right now you could buy an automotive heavyweight that used to belong to one of boxing greatest hitters. Floyd Mayweather's Maybach 57 is now for sale on AutoTrader.com.

Mayweather ordered the car new and promptly had it sent off to have a one of a kind paint job applied to the exterior. According to the dealership that is listing the car for sale, the paint job is completely unique and you wont find another Maybach 57 in this color.

Mayweather is known for having an extravagant car collection and has even posted his own MTV Cribs-style rundown of his cars online. Other cars in his garage include a Rolls Royce Drophead Phantom, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and a Mercedes SLR Msupercar.

Beyond his taste in cars, Floyd Mayweather made a name for himself in boxing. In the course of his career he won nine world championship titles in five different weight classes. Mayweather has been away from the ring for more than a year now, but the boxing world is buzzing with rumors of a possible comeback later this year, which would give this special Maybach even more cachet.

The Mayweather Maybach is listed at a cool $168,888, which is actually fairly competive compared to similar cars listed on AutoTrader.com. Due to the vast number of options available to Maybach owners, it can be difficult to find two cars with exactly the same specs, but for a boxing fan there are probably few more interesting rides on the market.

Even taking the car's celebrity ownership out of the equation, the Maybach has merits of its own. The Mercedes-Benz subsidiary made over-the-top luxury cars in the early twentieth century, but was put out of commission during WWII. In the late 1990s, Mercedes revived the nameplate to offer luxury cars at a spare-no-expense level that surpassed even its own flagship vehicles.

Thanks to its twin turbo V12, the Maybach 57 can launch occupants from 0-60 mph in around 5 seconds, which is extremely fast when you consider that the car weighs over 6,000 pounds.

Most cars with this kind of performance forego some creature comforts in order to provide the sportiest car possible; not the Maybach. 57 owners experience a pampering that isn't possible in just about anything else. How many cars come with standard champagne flute holders? Or carpeted wheel wells to reduce cabin noise?

One thing's for certain, after a long day studying the sweet science, we can't imagine a much better car to unwind in.
