Report: Russian billionaire buys Hitler's Mercedes
Unidentified billionaire buys dictator's dark blue car from private owner for between $6 to $15 million.
A German newspaper reported on Monday that German dictator Adolf Hitler's original Mercedes was sold to an unidentified Russian billionaire for several million euros.
The Express daily wrote that a middleman for the billionaire approached Duesseldorf-based vintage car dealer Michael Froehlich and asked him to track down the dictator's dark-blue 770 K model.
"I was really torn," Froehlich told Express. "After all this was about the car of a horrible mass murderer."
Nonetheless, Froehlich told Express he tracked down the car in Germany.
The paper said the billionaire flew in by private jet and bought it from the private owner for between $6 million to $15 million.
