Spyros’ limo sold for €16,000

FORMER President Spyros Kyprianou’s bulletproof presidential limo was auctioned off yesterday for €16,000.

The Mercedes was bought by the government in 1985 and was also used during former president George Vassiliou’s presidency. Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan used the vehicle in 2002 when he visited Cyprus in May 2002.

The car’s new owner, Andreas Orphanides, said the vehicle would now be in safe hands and that it would be placed in a museum for classic cars.
