  1. America has done more damage around the world than Hitler did
    Murdered innocent Iraqis and destroyed the country on a pack of lies.

  2. who cares about nazis and their fu…. cars or about assasin and loser hitler💀💀💀💀💀💀💀👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿

  3. We have standard highly monopolies creativity innovation unfortunatly even soudi dubai has fell down this fields due late time out for advence policy

  4. This info is outdated and incorrect. The car has been restored and is presently in Germany.
    The car looks very sad with the star missing…

  5. Would like to see more info on the Rolls-Royce, I believe a Phantom IV, the limited edition 8 cylinder car made for royalty. This is similar to a car made for England's then Princess Elizabeth, and still in use, A similar car made for Princess Margaret was in a private Los Angeles collection. The royal house of Spain has TWO, armoured models, originally ordered by Franco. The Shah of Iran had TWO.

  6. Nice nice! They have a hot and dry climate over there which may have prevented corrosion.And the caretaker must be very efficient to have prevented plundering the vehicles during and after the regime breakdown.

  7. unfortunately it was fled out of the country and then sold in the black market by someone who is very close to the previous prime minister Nouri al-Maliki
