A Romping Royal Range Rover

Range Rover ‘coffin car’ limousine originally used by the sex mad Prince Jefri Bolkiah of Brunei for sale for 94% less than its original £323,000 total cost

As we’ve reported before, Jefri Bolkiah – the Sultan of Brunei’s black sheep of the family brother – is best known for having had a total of five wives and eighteen children. He likes sexually graphic statues and spending money in a fashion that makes Elton John look modest and now an example of his extravagance is about to be auctioned.

 

Offered for just £18,000 to £24,000 – less than one tenth of the supposed £165,000 (or the equivalent of £323,000 today ) it originally cost to buy and stretch from a 1994 Range Rover Classic LSE into a lengthy limousine – the vehicle to be sold took some nine months for Townley Cross Country Vehicles to convert at the behest of the Sultan for his ‘Playboy Prince’ sibling.

 

Previously offered at auction by H&H Classics in March 2007 for £24,000 to £28,000 and sold by Bonhams to a Danish buyer for just £8,280 in April 2014, the lavish right-hand-drive limousine is described in the Silverstone Auctions catalogue for their NEC Classic Motor Show 2019 sale as being:

 

“Based on an end-of-the-line, soft-dash 1994 Range Rover Classic LSE… Townley stretched the chassis and body by 40″, incorporating two additional fixed Range Rover doors in the centre and a roof raised by 8″. They also installed a laminated sunroof together with darkened windows and a one-piece opening tailgate. Interior features include a full electric centre division with glass panel; three rear seats (two electrically operated); full air conditioning; stereo/CD player and two remote control 8″ television monitors with a VHS recorder. The exterior was painted in Rolls-Royce Mason Black and the interior trimmed in black-piped Oxblood Connolly hide with Wilton carpeting and Burr Walnut embellishments.”

 

Little used by the royal himself it seems, the Range Rover – registration L23 PWT – subsequently transported Mike Tyson around Scotland when he fought Lou Savarese at Hampden Park, near Glasgow in June 2000 and was then sold for £40,000 by a local dealer in August 2015, according to a lengthy article published about the car in Land Rover Magazine.

 

Silverstone Auctions will sell the “sexually charged” 4.2-litre ex-Prince Jefri of Brunei 1994 Range Rover LSE limousine at 2pm on Saturday 9th November. One can only imagine what sort of debauched antics will go on in the back of it during its next chapter, though the auctioneers more innocently simply suggest it to be perfect for simply “taking your extended family out to lunch.”
