King of Italy's 1939 FIAT Used to Chauffeur Hitler, Mussolini and Franco to be Auctioned by COYS

A Nazi-era 1939 Fiat Torpedo that was used by the King of Italy to chauffeur Germany's Adolf Hitler, Italy's Benito Mussolini and Spain's General Franco (the trio of doom...) around Rome on State visits is to be auctioned in Monaco next week by International Auction House, COYS. After the end of the Second World War, the luxury Fiat model became the official transport for the first prime ministers of Italy, Einaudi and De Nicola while it remained in the fleet of the Quirinale palace until 1963.

The London-based auction house expects the historically important Fiat Torpedo that has been featured the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza in previous years to fetch more than £250,000 which is the equivalent of €283,000 or US$377,000 with the current exchange rates.
