There were a little more than 600 Fiat 2800s made between 1938 and 1943, only about 400 of them for civilian use. The one you see above is one-of-a-kind: a 1939 Fiat 2800 Torpedo whose cushions have supported the rear ends of King Vittorio Emanuele II, Queen Margherita, the Princess of Pistoia, Pope Pius XII, Benito Mussolini, Generalissimo Francisco Franco, and Adolf Hitler. A couple of prime ministers have graced those seats as well, but with that diverse, high-profile roster who's worried about bit players?

The car will be auctioned by COYS International Auction House and is expected to fetch something north of £250,000. If you're interested in a slice of history, you'll want to be in Espace Fontvieille, Monaco on Monday, May 18.

      It reminds me of the scene from Rat Race where the Jewish family is riding around in the old Hitler mobile. XD

      King Vittorio Emanuele II and Queen Margherita both died before 1939.

      Who else rode in this car, George Washington, Genghis Khan, Moses?

        You beat me to that... Where did they get this information anyway?

        They meant the next generation, King Vittorio Emanuele III and Queen Elena. If you want news to be checked buy a newspaper. This is free after all.
        Ps. I read on another free blog that Prince Henry will buy it for his parties.

      This car is an accessory to genocide, it should be tried and sentenced to death.

      If everything goes according to Fiat's plans, in 100 years they'll be auctioning a Fiat that chauffeured a US president in 2025.
