NOW SOLD – The stretch limousine offered here is the work of one of the best known, Townley Cross Country Vehicles Ltd

The stretch limousine offered here is the work of one of the best known, Townley Cross Country Vehicles Ltd, which in its day was responsible for converting several hundred, many of them tailored to the specific requirements of wealthy Middle Eastern clients. Taking nine months to build, this example was originally commissioned by the Sultan of Brunei for his younger brother, Prince Jefri, and reputedly cost around £135,000.

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 VHS recorder. The exterior was painted in Rolls-Royce Masons Black and the interior trimmed in black-piped Oxblood Connolly hide with Wilton carpeting and burr walnut embellishment. In June 2000 ‘L23 PWT’ enjoyed its own ’15 minutes of fame’ when it was used to ferry World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Mike Tyson around Glasgow when he fought at Hampden Park (press cuttings on file). At that time is was reported that the car had covered 10,000 miles from new and was being offered for sale by the Glasgow Car Company. At receipt on file dated November 2001 records the purchaser (from Waterside Classics) as one Tom Shanks of Netherley, Stonehaven. The vehicle passed to an owner in Denmark in January 2008. Since returning to the UK, the vehicle has been re-registered on its original registration ‘L23 PWT’. This vehicle would be ideal for corporate ventures, being unique and in pristine condition. £49,950
