Dictator’s car for sale – only 500 euros

The Renault Fuego GTS, which former Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu gave to his daughter Zoe for her marriage in 1983, is about to be auctioned. The starting price of a coupé with such an unusual history is only 500 euros.

This version of the GTS coupe is powered by a 1.6-litre 96 hp engine, a manual transmission (instead of an automatic as advertised), a white exterior and a light brown cloth interior. The ad does not contain any information about the mileage, condition or how it has been maintained.

Recall that Ceausescu’s regime was overthrown in December 1989 and he and his wife were executed by court order. Their properties, including the Renault Fuego GTS, were seized by the Romanian General Prosecutor. The car was returned to Zoya Ceausescu and her husband in 1996. After that, it was used for trips outside the city – the dictator’s daughter and her husband preferred to drive Dacia 1310.

Zoya Ceausescu died of cancer in November 2006. It is not known what happened to the coupé between 2006 and 2022.
