Pol Pot Mercedes For Sale on E-bay:

Genocide Optional

Always wanted to be a mass murderer, but never had the time or opportunity? Well now you can feel like one as you ride down the road in your 1973 Mercedes-Benz Pol Pot Special Edition Killer!

[Note: The four on the floor might be bodies.]

If you got the bucks, E-bay's got the car. From der Spiegel:
He was one of the most brutal dictators of the 20th century. Now Pol Pot's car is up for grabs on eBay. A Brit is offering the 1973 Mercedes Limousine that is said to have once belonged to the Cambodian dictator for 35,000 pounds.

"For Sale - one classic 1973 Mercedes Benz Stretch Limousine (short-wheel base stretch) -- previously used by one infamous owner -- Pol Pot who led the Khmer Rouge during its genocidal regime in Cambodia from 1975-1979." This is the tantalizing, if morally dubious, offer to car shoppers on eBay. The going price is 35,000 pounds (about €50,000 or $72,000).

Want to bid on an authentic slice of genocidal 20th-century history? Here's the page to bid on E-bay.
Current bid at post: $71,799.00.
