Pol Pot's Merc - yours for £35k

100,000 miles, one despotic owner

Top three mobile application threats

So, you've shelled out for the eye-catching L1NUX number plate, and now need a set of wheels worthy of bearing the illustrious open source celebration.

Pol Pot's Mercedes as seen on eBayLet's face it, a second-hand Ford Fiesta isn't going to do the job, so what about a 1973 short wheel base stretch Merc, once owned by fun-loving Khmer Rouge grand fromage Pol Pot?

True, it's not Hitler's "Swabian Colossus", the four-ton, armoured-plated Mercedes 540K featuring hand-stitched leather, hand-crafted coachwork and lashings of chrome, which earlier this year went on sale for close to £1m - but Pol's rather more modest vehicle (befitting his Maoist agrarian fundamentalist ethos) does boast aircon for a knock-down £35k.

It's been on TV too, as this clip shows. According to the vid, the current owner's Cambodian missus is unsurprisingly none too keen on the car, which might explain why he's decided to offload it. eBayers seem to agree with her, and with a tad over four days to run on the auction, it has attracted no bids. ®
