Even if you aren’t a follower of boxing championships, you will know who Mike Tyson is. The legendary boxing champion has punched his way to soaring heights of fame and given the boxing fans some memorable matches that they will never forget. Although he lost out on many fans when he chewed off the ear of his opponent Evander Holyfield in the famous 1997 match, there are some who still respect the guy.
If you are one such fan who still goes crazy on hearing the name Mike Tyson, then this Bentley Continental T might be interest for you. It boasts a 6.75-litre turbo-charged V8 engine producing 650 lb-ft of torque, is one of only 322 copies ever made, and Iron Mike bought it just a month before infamously biting off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear.
The Bentley Continental T was a tricked out Continental R with more power and ‘sportier’ handling. It’s a 2+2 coupe that gets its sporty image courtesy the 10cm shortening of the wheelbase and the extended front and rear wheel arches. Car is equipped with two-tone red and black Connolly leather interior, a polished aluminum dashboard with a red starter button and a McIntosh sound system. Tyson bought it from Rolls-Royce of New York in 1997, and since then it has accumulated 40,000 kilometers and has undergone an overhaul at the hands of England’s Phantom Motor Cars.
The car is being sold from Cologne, Germany, for €130,000, ($170,000) which is a pretty fair price for a car that packs such a punch, don’t you think?
