An extensively modified 1994 Range Rover Vogue LSE commissioned by the brother of the Sultan of Brunei and used by Mike Tyson will be auctioned off by Iconic Auctioneers in the UK. The vehicle will be one of the more intriguing vehicles it offers up during the event running from November 10-12 and it expects it to sell for between £30,000 ($37,120) and £40,000 ($49,493).
This special Range Rover was built for Prince Jefri by Townley Cross Country Vehicles as the ultimate Range Rover of the day. It is four feet longer than a standard Range Rover and the roof has been jacked up by eight inches, resulting in an absolutely massive cabin that allows occupants to relax like they would in a private jet.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the interior is the seating layout. Positioned right behind the partition to the front of the cabin is a single seat facing towards the door. The rear of the cabin is then home to two large captain’s chairs, each with armrests and easy access to a pair of Sony headphones. The cabin also features two TV sets with a VCR player, a CD player, and large storage cubbies. Two of the seats are electrically adjustable and all of them are trimmed in bright red leather.

Like many other cars owned by the Sultan of Brunei, the Range Rover slipped under the radar for many years but made global headlines in 2000 when it was used by boxing great Mike Tyson while he was in Glasgow to fight Lou Savarese at Hampden Park. The car was being sold by Glasgow Car Company at the time and eventually found its way into the hands of an owner in Denmark in January 2008. It has lived out its most recent years in the UK and the listing notes it has 16,976 miles (27,320 km) under its belt.
