According to Afran facts, “Gabon’s former President Omar Bongo had 70 bank accounts, 39 properties, 2 Ferraris, 6 Mercedes Benz cars, 3 Porsches and a Bugatti in France. He ruled for 42 years from 1967 to 2009. He was elected Vice President in 1966. His son, Ali Bongo has been Gabon’s President since 2009.”

In 2014, Courtesy of France 24 comes this report on one car purchase on what looks like one day in January 2010 when the recently elected president Ali Bongo son of longtime ruler Omar Bongo bought a passel of luxury cars via a Swiss company.

FRANCE 24 has obtained documents and photos, and conducted interviews, which show that the total order came to 14,882,000 Euros for 29 luxury cars, or roughly $18 million. That includes a pair of the big Maybachs, B-series Mercedes, Vianos, three CL 63 AMGs, an M3 and an M5 sedan, an M6 coupe, a couple of busses, and, oh, why not a pair of Rolls Royce Ghosts in different colors.

Gabon is rich by African standards, sure, but that money doesn’t go to the majority of people. Instead it goes to the elite.

While all of these cars are fine, I’d argue that Ali Bongo doesn’t have his father’s good taste.
