Saddam's '88 560SEL for sale in New Haven, CT. $2,000,000 (ebay) noted on Benzworld.
 
Hattie, can you drop buy and check it out? Don't you live near it?

Looks like this is really the real deal. Russian site VIN# confirms original selling dealer on it is in Iraq, 1988.

Well it looks like he got it out of the governments hands. I remember reading about this in the paper. The government was going to seize it because its a war trophy.


The car needs tons of work, I should offer him $2k so he can sell it when he comes to his senses.

I read nothing in the ad stating this was Saddam's car. Even if so, why would anyone spend 2,000,000 bucks on a beat to ***** MB.

I wonder what oil Saddam used dino or synthetic...



I would buy it for $1500 where are you going to get a replacement window?

Does it come with the Saddam montage?

Does it have any documentation?

What an incredibly lame auction. Everything about it sucks, description, pictures, layout, design. If your're going to try to cash in on the "celebrity"-owned status to the tune of $2MIL you'd think you'd put some effort into it.

That Saddam montage was very Arrested Development-esque.

Too bad Nick moved to NC, he could have snatched it up.
