Topic: Nicholas II
The purple 1914 Rolls-Royce Ghost, formerly owned by Emperor Nicholas II is up for sale in Germany.
Autoscout24 who specialize exclusively in the sale of luxury automobiles has listed the historic car for 5.5 million euros, which is equivalent of about $ 7 million.
After the murder of the Imperial family the car was transported to the United States where it made its way into the collection of John Ringling (of Ringling Bros. Circus). It was later exhibited in one of the casinos in Las Vegas.
After the death of its owner the car was purchased by a German collector in 2010. He reportedly kept the Rolls-Royce in an "nuclear bomb-proof bunker” in the basement of his mansion."
