Former undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the World, Mike Tyson, provided DUB a glimpse into his impressive garage back in Issue 2, the early days of DUB Magazine.
The boxing titan was featured with his droptop 2000 Bentley Continental SC and the super rare 1996 Jaguar XJ220.
It was Jaguar’s first production supercar and was once its fastest model made (and fastest model made production car in the world until the McLaren F1 was made). In 1996, only 50 XJ220s were built, with the first 30 being race cars and the last 20 road versions.
Tyson paid more than $800,000 for his rare Jag that boasts a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 aluminum engine that allows it to hit a top track speed of 220 mph and accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.6 seconds. Originally, the Jag was going to be made with a V12 engine, but production took too long and was too expensive.
His Bentley Continental SC cost him more than $350,000, which sports a turbo 6.75-liter V8 that can reach speeds as high as 155 mph and go from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds.
The high-performance thoroughbred with its bold and striking style features a distinctive glass roof system, with the roof panels made of advanced, high-strength glass. Its interior features detailed touches, such as a sparkling chromed gear level and engine start button, as well as two-color upholstery.
