8. Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov Lenin, Soviet Union
As a leader of the October Revolution and a Marxist revolutionary, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin became the ruler of the vast Soviet Union, which spread from Europe to the Pacific Ocean. He initiated transforming Tsarist Russia into the Soviet Union, the first communist country in the world. As the leader of proletariat forces, workers and peasants, Lenin was not into a luxury lifestyle, but he wasn’t immune to the charm of Rolls-Royce.
Immediately after he came to power, he ordered a brand new, specially-built Rolls Royce Silver Ghost from the factory in England. The car came with one set of regular wheels and a set of half-track caterpillars for winter driving. Lenin, as a true Bolshevik who despised the capitalist way of thinking, owned eight more Rolls Royce cars.
In fact, he loved them so much, he built heated garages in his residence. In the time when people in the Soviet Union died of cold, their leader kept his precious cars warm. At least one of those cars is known to exist today.
