1977 Peugeot 504
After receiving nearly half a million bids from all over the world, including from the U.S., Europe and Asia, the car was eventually sold to a company, which wishes to remain anonymous. A lawyer representing the company said the car was bought because of a personal interest in President Ahmadinejad’s ideals.
The sale is fitting as Ahmadinejad is widely recognized in Iran as the "people's president" and friend of the common man. Additionally, one of his election goals from his 2009 campaign was to put housing, employment and economic reform at the top of his agenda after house prices increased dramatically during his previous term.
