Muammar al-Qaddafi may have called himself a simple Bedouin, but when it came to transport, camels were not his thing. In 2009, he unveiled his own custom-designed supercar, the Saroukh El Jamahiriya, or Libyan Rocket, a five seat sedan shaped (oddly enough) like a rocket. But speed wasn't quite the Brotherly Leader's goal: with an amemic 230 horsepower engine, it wasn't designed to tear down Tripoli's highways. Instead, it was designed to be the safest car in the world, complete with pop-out bumbers and double digit airbags. Sadly, only one was ever built. And he could have used it.
