The first auction of what is said to be the first West car owned by Chancellor Angela Merkel will be auctioned again. Interested parties can submit their bids on Ebay until April 30th.
So now the second attempt. After the first auction was called off at the last minute, the supposedly first West car from Angela Merkel (CDU) is now being offered for sale again on the Internet auction house Ebay.
VW Golf on Ebay since Friday
The 22-year-old VW Golf II was discontinued on Friday, said Ebay spokeswoman Leonie Bechtoldt. Interested parties can submit their bids until April 30th. The car is said to have belonged to Angela Merkel from 1990 to 1995. The vehicle registration document that the seller put on the Internet names the Chancellor as the first owner. This time, anyone wishing to bid must first submit a copy of their identity card. This is to prevent "fun laws".
Originally, the Berlin owner of the Golf wanted to sell it last Monday. Ebay stopped the auction shortly before the bidding period expired because many bidders were not seriously interested. It had been a question of offering fun. Secondly, the bids at the first auction were 130,000 euros. On Saturday morning, 1121 euros were already being offered for the golf. (AG / dpa)
