If you have $1.6 million burning a hole in your bank account and don't want to spend that hard-earned money on a house or a supercar, luxury goods site James Edition has another option available. How about a 1989 ZIL-41052 armor-plated limousine with previous riders that purportedly include former Russian leaders Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin?

According to the listing, this limo was reportedly part of the Russian government fleet from 1989 until 2007 and was one of just 13 made. With just 18,271 miles on the odometer, the ZIL didn't seem to get driven much. All of that armor certainly packed on the weight, though, at a claimed 12,125 pounds. To move that huge mass, there's a 7.7-liter V8 under the hood making a purported 315 horsepower.

The massive ZIL certainly makes an impact with stately, though imperious, styling. It's just a mass of hard-edged lines with barely a curve to be found. Inside, the driver gets a leather seat to control this beast, and the rear shows acres of velour with a little wood trim for contrast.

The listing claims the ZIL is located in Moscow, and you would probably get some very interesting looks from locals during the test drive. Of course, that's only if you think the importance of the alleged previous passengers and rarity make the limo worth the astronomical asking price.
