A cannibal’s car

Dictator and alleged cannibal Bokassa I of Central Africa’s Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman for sale for £225,000

 

Jean-Bédel Bokassa, or ‘Bokassa I of Central Africa’ as he preferred to be known, was the head of state of the Central African Republic and subsequently the Central African Empire from 1966 until 1979. Befitting of his status as a dictator in 1977, he purchased a pair of Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman limousines. One is currently for sale for £225,000.

Bokassa was a leader typical of his era and in emulating his hero Napoleon spent some £13.5 million on his coronation. His reign of terror included himself personally supervising judicial beatings and the introduction of a rule that thieves would have an ear cut off for the first two offenses and a hand for the third. After being deposed, he fled to a French chateau he owned but on returning to the Central African Republic in 1986, he was tried for treason, cannibalism and murder. Found guilty of murder in 1987 and imprisoned until being freed in 1993, this father of 50 by 17 wives spent his final years claiming he was the 13th Apostle.

 

The ex-Bokassa left-hand drive Pullman has covered just 13,000 miles and features conference seating for four. It is finished in black and is presented in immaculate condition. The car is on the market through Daniel Donovan of DD Classics and is described as “iconic” and one of the “most desirable examples in existence”.

    1. Gillian Squitters demands that the buyer of this awful car contribute ten per cent of the sale price to support Find Madeleine, to help dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their search for their beloved daughter Madeleine McCann. It is disgraceful that, repeatedly, The Steeple Times runs stories on cannibals and doesn’t support the fund. What is wrong with you people?

      • Why are you so rude and abusive Glenmore? You ought to pay penance for your crimes by donating to the Find Madeleine campaign. Support dear Gerry and Kate McCann in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine and people might like you better. I somehow expect you to write something equally pugnacious in reply but at least I’ve tried. Shame on you and The Steeple Times for giving you space to write this poisonous drivel.

    2. As for this car, why waste time writing about it? You could at least publish something in support of dear Gerry and Kate in their efforts to find their beloved daughter Madeleine McCann. Please see sense.

    3. According to Sky News, Jimmy Savile’s Rolls Royce was bought by a scrap dealer from Poole in Dorset who payed (reports vary) c £130K – £160K for it and pretty soon came to regret his purchase as a. He hadn’t mentioned it to his wife and b. Savile was outed subsequent to the sale. Just as there is a celebrity premium for cars which belonged to celebs, there is presumably a big discount for cars which belonged to the Saviles and his ilk. See http://news.sky.com/story/996611/buyer-of-jimmy-saviles-rolls-royce-gutted

    4. Whatever gave you the idea I was referring to you Miss 10%?

      You confuse me though. You say “Shame on The Steeple Times for giving you space to write this poisonous drivel.”

      To whom were you referring?

      The bile/effluent/poisonous tosh one seems read here constantly, seems, almost exclusively to emanate from you!

      The fragrant ady Meyer would surely agree. 🙂

    5. The coronation photo of the man-eating emperor is screamingly funny if it were not so tragic. I can’t imagine anyone except an attention-starved mad rocker who would find riding around it that car the least bit attractive. As for the sad case of the missing child, whatever does this (clearly good) cause have that attracts such bizarre, bad-vibe, hysterics? Dial it back.

    6. This amazing car, with minimal mileage, compares well when compared with an ex council house in Salford*

      Amongst the notable owners of these amazing vehicles you will find Idi Amin, Fidel Castro, Nicholai Ceausescu Pablo Escobar, Papa Doc, Pol Pot, Elvis, Saddam. Ferdinand Marcos, Dolce and Gabana, and Jeremy Clarkson*

      This car is international currency, but so is the Salford council house, given the proximity of senior BBC executives

      Gillian, please join Elton, Glenmore and I by boycotting Dolce and Gabana….

      * the connection here is the BBC
