Found: 2009
Valued at: $15 million

It was inside a barn in Bielefeld, Germany, that an armoured limousine used to chauffeur Adolf Hitler was found resting last year. Almost seven decades after its last trip, a Dusseldorf vintage car dealer stumbled across the Nazi leader's Mercedes 770k, which appeared not to have been driven since the end of World War II. The limo is actually a long-lost twin of the same car that sits in the Canadian War Museum, the gallery's most famous exhibit and one in a short fleet of armoured vehicles Hitler was known to have used between 1940 and 1942. Shortly after the Bielefeld limousine's discovery, German media reported a Russian investor had bought the car for $15 million, according to the CBC.
