FRANCE 24 has managed to obtain an interesting document that shows how much money the Gabonese presidency spent in one day on cars.

The document dates back to January 2010, four months after Ali Bongo became president of the Gabonese Republic and includes a fleet of 18 vehicles. Aside from two €1.25 million "Bus VIP" and two €992,000 Maybach 62S, the list also includes 2x Rolls-Royce Phantom, 2x Rolls-Royce Ghost, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead, 2x Bentley Mulsanne, Bentley Continental GT Speed and three Mercedes-Benz CL 63 AMG. Also on that list are a trio of BMW M models (M3, M5, M6) along with a 760 Li.

All cars from the list have a combined value of €7.84 million but the total transaction stood at €14.88 million, including service & maintenance and other related costs like a repair shop and the necessary equipment.

According to FRANCE 24, in 2012 there were more than 400 high-end cars stored in a 1,000 square meter parking lot and all of them were bought under Ali Bongo's presidency and his father Omar Bongo. It is believed all vehicles were purchased in France by using Gabonese taxpayers' money and now the French authorities are investigating these potentially illegally-acquired assets.
