Specced by Joshua himself, the exterior is finished in bespoke black paint, with matching roof and door mirrors. Meanwhile, the front grille, side graphics vent and door handles are finished in Graphite Atlas for a ‘stealthy’ appearance. The front vents bear the Union Flag and the number 258, a reference to the boxer’s management company.

The B-pillar features Joshua’s family crest, as well as the initials of the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles the boxer currently holds. The 22-inch alloy feature ‘Diamond Turned’ finish, with contrasting red brake callipers.

Inside, Joshua’s signature is embroidered onto the headrests, while the seats are finished in Ebony Windsor Leather with Pimento quilted inserts. A plaque on the centre console bears an ‘AJBXNG’ graphic, while boxing glove motifs can be found on the door handles.

Elsewhere, the aluminium-finished dashboard and illuminated treadplates bear the 30-year-old’s name.

Designed to transport Joshua in supreme comfort en route to his next title defence in the summer, the Executive Class Comfort-Plus airline-style rear seats feature heated calf rests and a hot stone massage function. From here, the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system can be controlled by either of the 10-inch touchscreens embedded into the back of the front headrests.

The Range Rover SVAutobiography is powered by a supercharged V8 producing 557bhp.

“The countdown to my next fight has begun and this custom Range Rover will play its part in the build-up,” said Joshua. “With family and media commitments here in London and my training base in Sheffield, I spend lots of time on the road. The SVAutobiography will take the stress out of long trips, allowing me to relax in complete comfort, and its unique design features both my family crest and references to my boxing success and I have to thank the team at Land Rover Vehicle Personalisation for taking my ideas and making them real.”
