9 most expensive presidential cars in Africa in 2022


African leaders will go to great lengths to make sure they travel in protected, top-of-the-line cars that say something. This makes sense, given what they do and how important they are to the country. So, they'll choose a vehicle that can move quickly, handle rough terrain, and be very steady and safe around turns.


On wheels, only the big leader has access to wine chillers, coolers, high-quality TVs, and interactive media, as well as all the comforts they need while traveling. However, this is not cheap, especially when there are a lot of them. The people will have to pay for this. All things considered, cars are just toys.
