A TRUCK previously owned by David Beckham while he was playing for Manchester United has been auctioned for £45,000.
The 22-year-old Lincoln Navigator was purchased by the star back in 2000 and was regularly spotted driving it to the team’s training ground.
Becks was one of the first people in Britain to have the model shipped from the US during his time with the Red Devils.
The footy star loves American cars and acquired a valuable collection of luxury US motors when he joined LA Galaxy.
And next Thursday, the fuel-guzzling vehicle with a 5.4-liter V8 engine will be auctioned off.
The current and second owner bought the vehicle from Beckham in 2003 and is now selling it after a complete restoration.
The vehicle is equipped with wood and leather interior and already had air-conditioned seats and a satellite navigation system in 2000.
Also coming is a special license plate with the initials of David, Victoria and son Brooklyn, who was a baby at the time.
The current owner has added other features including no key input, a user-programmable keyboard, anti-lock brakes, and adjustable brake and accelerator pedals.
The left-hand drive engine – classified as a truck in the US – has 300 hp, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in eight seconds and is equipped with privacy glass and 20-inch chrome wheels.
If the engine itself wasn’t a catch, the sale includes an autographed famous number 7 jersey worn by Becks during a Champions League tie.
It is signed ‘Best Wishes David Beckham’ on the back and is expected to fetch between £4,000 and £6,000.
The engine also includes an original V5 signed by Victoria Beckham and has only 45,000 miles on the clock.
A spokesman for Mullock’s Auctioneers said: “The Lincoln was a flagship Ford vehicle at the time and was seen as a flagship model and one deserving of celebrity status.
“This particular model is packed with luxury extras, from numeric code entry to front doors, a roof-mounted DVD player, heated seats, power pedals and more.
“No expense was spared to ensure the restoration was of a very high standard.
“The chrome rims were replaced a few years earlier but every effort was made to source suitable American replacement parts.
“Tires are new and therefore mechanically with relatively low mileage for its age, this vehicle has many more years of life.
“Lincoln advertises that these engines are good for 100,000 miles without major service.”
