Description

This bullet proof Mercedes, which was owned by Gorbachev, is being sold by the current owner who no longer has use for the vehicle.

  • Make: Mercedes
  • Model: SEL 560
  • Mileage: 126,156
  • Interior: Gray Cloth
  • Features: Manual, Electric Windows, A/C & Heater, Stereo

More Details:

  • Hood, trunk & tires are NOT protected by armor. (Only the passenger compartment is protected)
  • This car was actually registered in Gorbachev's name (usually the government nation assigns a government official/ head of state a car, but not in their name).
    • Seller has a copy of the car's registration showing Gorbachev's name, address, etc on it.
  • Gorbachev's bodyguards told the previous owners that German Chancellor Kohl gave this car as a gift to Gorbachev as a thank you for his role in bringing down the Berlin Wall. There is no way to verify this information though.
  • The model year of the car is 1991, but it was serviced in Germany until 1995 since there wasn't a facility in Moscow until then to service the vehicle (according to the bodyguards).
  • The video attachment is of the previous owner riding it on a farm in 2006. It has only been started a handful of times since then.

***The vehicle's previous owner, Gorbachev's girlfriend, reportedly rejected an offer of $150,000 for this vehicle. She gave the vehicle to the current owner in return for years of professional legal services.
