Classic Car Auctions (CCA) claim the 1980 Range Rover Classic was one of two owned by the Jamaican music legend, adding that it was obtained via an agent who dealt directly with the Marley family.

Despite having a smashed windscreen, a battered body and an engine that currently resides in its boot, the SUV is expeted to fetch around £150,000 (around $181,000) when the hammer drops.
