Gaddafi's Car

Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar Gaddafi or commonly knows as Muammar Gaddafi was a leader from Libya. As we all know he had a miserable death just like Uday Hussein's Family. But just like Uday Hussein, even Gaddafi had a great garage. Sharing some of the pics of his collection sourced through Google. Anyone looking for more information on Gaddafi go to the following link:

This is one car which Gaddafi designed himself, called the "Saroukh el-Jamahiriya" or Libyan Rocket. It had a 230-hp V6 and the nose and tail of a rocket. More info at

His custom Fiat 500. It was reported to have cost £175,000 and is bright green with gold trimmings. It ran on electricity rather than petrol. It was customised by a company in Milan and bears some of the bizarre hallmarks of the Gaddafi personality cult. On the bonnet Fiat logo was replaced with a black map of Africa with Libya picked out in green. The interior feature a back-lit image of a tribal leader known as 'The Lion of the Desert’ who fought Italian troops during Libya’s colonisation in the 1920s and 30s. The car was later seized by anti-Gaddafi rebels from his Bab al-Azizia compound as evident from one of the pic.

About Gaddafi
Muammar Abu Meniar el - Gaddafi was born in the North African desert, south of Sirte, Libya in 1942.The son of a poor Bedouin nomad, Gaddafi lived in his family's remote desert camp until he went away to school at age 9.

While a student at a secondary school at Sebha, Gaddafi was inspired by the speeches of Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser and became a committed Arab nationalist. Gaddafi organized his fellow students into revolutionary study groups at Sebha; he continued the practice at the University of Libya in Tripoli,where he received a history degree in 1963.Following his graduation, Gaddafi entered the Libyan Military Academy in Benghazi, where he found many of the cadets were sympathetic to his anti-western nationalism.

Commissioned into the Libyan army in 1965, he began lying groundwork for an overthrow of the Libyan monarch King Idris, whom he considered a pawn of the Western European nations.Within four years Gaddafi took control of the army and on September 1,1969, he seized power in a carefully planned coup.Assuming command of the government as chairman ruling Revolutionary Council, Gaddafi declared himself commander-in-chief of Libya's armed forces and its government, with the rank of colonel. Gaddafi soon began implementing his long-dreamed plans for Libya by nationalizing all foreign banks and oil companies and insisting on closing down all European military bases in Libya.In 1970 Gaddafi seized the private assets of Libya's Italian and Jewish residents, driving them from the country.
