Jimuel Pacquiao, Manny Pacquiao’s son, has more in common with his dad than just his looks and passion for boxing. Like his father—who’s owned several luxury rides in the past, among them a Ferrari 458 Italia and a Mercedes-Benz SL550—he’s into nice cars as well.

The eldest Pacquiao was recently featured on David Sisson's YouTube channel, together with his first brand-new ride: a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with a Torch Red exterior finish.

By the looks of the video, Pacquiao is a big fan of the vehicle’s 6.2-liter V8 engine. He plays around with the throttle and gives it a few revs before proceeding to take it for a quick spin around the neighborhood—though he doesn’t really make full use of its 455hp and 621Nm of torque.

The Philippine-spec Corvette Stingray also comes with a handful of other niceties including a premium Bose 10-speaker sound system, an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, competition sports seats, and suede interior trim.

So, how much is a Corvette Stingray? The vehicle comes with a P8,546,888 price tag. Not cheap by any means, but it should be chump change for Manny Pacquiao. The Philippine Senator and Filipino boxing champ is ranked by Forbes as the world’s 92nd highest-paid athlete for 2019 with $26 million (over P1.3 billion) in earnings as of June.

What do you think of his first ride?

Looks snazzy.

I have no thoughts...
