7 Million Euros for a Car & a German's Soul


According to YahooNews, Adolf Hitler's original Mercedes has been sold to an unidentified Russian billionaire for several million euros. The anonymous billionaire's middleman approached Duesseldorf-based vintage car dealer Michael Froehlich and asked him to track down the dictator's dark-blue 770 K model. Said Froehlich:

"I was really torn. After all this was about the car of a horrible mass murderer."

But then 7 million euros made him stop pondering his moral dilemma and find the car.

For serious, had the billionaire already gold-plated everything in his house? Because what do even do with Hitler's car? Aside from it being weird to want anything that Hitler owned, what do you do with the car? Unless he's going to destroy it and make an awesome youtube video, I'm not sure I understand the point...

Meh. Beats drunkenly crashing Lamborghinis into pensioners. That said I agree with your oligarch-lynching sentiments.

When James Bond did it, nobody gets hurt.

I need Hitler's car!!! I see a roadtrip movie. I've already started the screenplay. Picture this: Dick Cheney driving it down Route 61. He's mad and packing heat. And...And Tom Green in the back dressed like Hitler. Then some explicit nudity; also some things that would make Eli Roth shudder. In the end Green will be humping the car and Cheny will come at him with a shotgun. But then they'll embrace and make out. The end.

Add the ghost of Hunter S. Thompson, and you've probably got your self a picture.
