Do you now consider yourself a stock gangster after taking down GameStop hedgies? Well, then it’s time to start acting like a real gangster and take dead Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s 2010 Maybach, for sale at a cool $964,000, and roll up to the nearest GameStop you saved from a shorting death.
Gaddafi, killed in 2011 by rebel fighters who beat him and sodomized him with a bayonet before shooting him several times, had great taste in fine things like a car that boasts a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12 under the hood and that pumps out an astounding 621 horsepower. The bad news for Muammar is that he didn’t have the car at his disposal when he tried to get away from those rebel fighters.
The good news for the stock rebel fighters out there is that now one of you can blow your AMC earnings, pulling this bad boy into the 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath ranch you purchased with Bed, Bath & Beyond earnings. Imagine bragging on Reddit about how you stuck it to the hedgies and now you’re driving Gaddafi’s car. Your Reddit karma points would go through the roof. You could pretty much front page anything you post for the next 25 years.
Now for some bad news. According to MSN, the Imported Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988 seems to be in play here. The act prevents cars that weren’t originally sold in the U.S. from coming to the States until the ride is 25 years old. That means you’d have to figure out a foreign land in which to store your dictator Maybach for the next 14 years until you can unleash it on U.S. streets.
So have it sent to the Caribbean. St. Lucia wouldn’t be a bad place to drive around like a dictator. Have some fun. Blow some money.
