Additional Information After coming to power in 1933, Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist (Nazi) Party imposed a ruthless dictatorial system on Germany. This black armoured Mercedes Benz limousine, which Hitler used as a parade car, helped to propagate this regime's image of strength, power, and modernity.

Captured by American troops in 1945 and brought to Canada a few years later, this car recalls one of history's most brutal and murderous dictatorships.
