Floyd Mayweather is giving away one of his Ferrari cars to a lucky fan, just so long as they can achieve 'greatness' like he did.

Mayweather, 44, took to Instagram to announce he is teaming up with BetOnline.ag to give away one of his beloved vehicles, but it will mean one of his followers enjoying a prolific betting streak.

"Want my Ferrari? Win like Floyd, Drive like Floyd," he wrote.

"I am teaming up with @BetOnline_ag to give one lucky sports bettor my personal Ferrari. Match my 50-0 perfect record with your bets and take home your very own Ferrari."

The post also included a video where 'Money' Mayweather further explains that the potential winner needs to make 50 correct NBA bets in a row to retrieve the prize.

The American's own boxing career ended with a perfect professional record, winning all 50 of his fights to cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats.

And sure enough, in the clip, he reminds fans of his stellar career.

"I'm a perfect 50-0. Undefeated. The greatest there was, the greatest there will ever be," he said.

"Greatness respects greatness. I'm challenging you to a perfect 50 and 0 record like mine. The NBA has started and whoever matches my record is riding away in style."

Mayweather has more than 27.4 million followers on Instagram, and sure enough, just two days after being posted the clip had been viewed more than 440,000 times.

The icon has never been shy of boasting about his wealth, and this week was ranked sixth in a list of the richest athletes in history, with Michael Jordan coming out on top.

Is Floyd Mayweather the greatest boxer of all-time? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

According to a report complied by sports business website Sportico, Mayweather earned $1.2billion during his career when adjusted for inflation.

However, that fell some way short of the $2.62bn earned by Jordan during his trophy-laden career with the Chicago Bulls.

Golfers Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus follow behind Jordan with football star Cristiano Ronaldo rounding off the top five, ahead of Mayweather.

However, the Michigan-born star was the only combat athlete to make the top 10 with Mike Tyson ($775m) back in 16th, and old rival Manny Pacquiao ($630m) in 18th.

Oscar De La Hoya is the other boxer in the top 25 with earnings of $580m.
