David Beckham fans, brace yourself! A very special Range Rover Sport firstly owned by legendary English footballer David Beckham will be offered by Classic Car Auctions (CCA) in its sale on 5th December at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre. The 2007 model SUV was exclusively designed and upgraded for the ex-England football captain by Kahn Conversions at a whooping cost of more than Rs. 1 Crore. It’s now offered for sale at auction, estimated at between Rs. 23 Lakhs and Rs. 25 Lakhs.
With every optional extra conceivable included, inside the Range Rover features a unique interior with hand-stitched quilted leather seats (good enough to please wife Victoria), twin rear screens for Brooklyn and Romeo to play their PlayStation and a bespoke Genesis sound system. There is also plaque bearing the moniker "Designed for David Beckham", as well as the Beckham name embroidered into the floor mats. The car has covered 10,000 kilometers and offers a superb driving experience. First registered with the number plate "DB1001" the history file includes a speeding summons in the name of David’s sister Joanne, to whom he subsequently gifted the car with the V5C listing David as the first owner and the current vendor as the second.
Commenting on the car, classic car specialist at CCA, Arwel Richards, said: “This amazing personalised Range Rover with its impeccable provenance offers a unique future investment opportunity. David Beckham is arguably one of the most famous personalities on earth, and certainly a titan of sport. Recent sales of celebrity owned cars have far exceeded the true market values of contemporary models and so we expect great excitement around the sale.” David isn’t the only Beckham to lend a hand in designing a Range Rover. Notably his wife Victoria helped support the design of the hugely popular Range Rover Evoque, perhaps inspired by the additions to this very car.
The SUV is powered by a throaty 4.2L supercharged V8 petrol engine and on the outside presented in Beckham’s favourite black with a striking Kahn body kit and black five spoke alloy wheels. Arwel added: “Everyone should get the chance to drive and own a supercharged petrol Range Rover at some point, so why not one driven by one of the icons of the 21st Century?”
