Russian Missile Launcher

If you're the sort of person who just demands the attention of their friends, family and neighbours and - having already bought a life size Cow and Calf statue set - still don't quite feel that you're the centre of their attention just yet then, today, we have just the thing for you...

Equally, if you're the sort of person who can't stand your neighbours and want to wind them up to the point of apoplexy, then this may also be the perfect purchase!

Standing over 30 ft (9.25 metres) in length and 8ft (2.5 metres) in height, this Russian built ZIL 135 missile launcher is a left over from Cold War era and comes equipped with eight wheels and two 7 litre V8 engines.

Of course, merely the launcher alone is enough to cause the odd raised eyebrow but - when coupled with a trio of life size replica missiles on its back - it is almost certain to create a talking point when you turn up in to, say, pick your kids up from school.

There are some small drawbacks; it has a petrol consumption of between 1 and 3 miles to the gallon and, as the current owner points out:

"don’t be surprised if you have some spy satellite looking down on you!"

Personally, I see this as a positive boon - you'd have no need for GPS since the CIA would be permanently tracking you!

So, if you have a chronic need for attention - or are merely in the process of establishing yourself as a military dictator (we all have to start somewhere, right?) - then don't delay as it's currently available at the bargain price of £50,000...
