The limousine Range Rover commissioned by the Sultan of Brunei for his younger brother Prince Jefri is being sold at auction.
The converted Range Rover sedan is said to be worth around £135,000 – but the auction starts at an estimated £30,000.
The stretched 1994 Range Rover Classic LSE is the work of Townley Cross Country Vehicles Ltd, one of the best-known conversion companies of its time.
The bespoke Range Rover is equipped with new interior features such as two 8-inch televisions with VHS recorder, full air conditioning, three rear seats and a fully electric glass panel center compartment.
They rebuilt it by stretching the vehicle’s chassis and body by 40 inches and raising the roof another 8 inches, making the Range Rover look like a 4×4 sedan.
The exterior has been painted in a Rolls-Royce Mason Black and the interior of the car is also equipped with a picnic table.
The sedan Range Rover enjoyed its own 15 minutes of fame in 2000 when world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was promoted in the infamous 1994 Range Rover Classic when he fought at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
At the time, the sedan was reported to have covered 10,000 miles, but its recent MOT in May revealed it had reached almost 17,000 miles.
The conversion of this bespoke Range Rover took nine months and many of these iconic cars were tailored specifically for customers in the Middle East.
The organizers of the auction of this car say: “This striking vehicle would be ideal for corporate and promotional events or for a lunch outing with the extended family.”
The 1994 Range Rover Classic will be auctioned in Birmingham this month.
This comes after Mike Skinner’s infamous modified 1974 Rolls-Royce was auctioned off earlier this year.
In the meantime, an engine owned by Top Gear legend James May and tuned up by Richard Hammond could be yours.
A Range Rover that once belonged to Queen Elizabeth II is also up for auction… and will cost ten times as much due to the royal connection
