What You Can Actually Get for the Price of a Car in Egypt

We all know car prices in Egypt are exorbitant and down right illogical. The price of a Fiat in Egypt can easily have you riding a pretty decent used Chrysler in the U.S.  Here on CarBibles you will find interesting and useful information about automobile ownership and car culture.

This got us thinking about what we could all be riding if we lived in a country that didn’t tax us 200% on each car:

In Egypt, a Fiat Lada costs 56,000 LE (approximately $8,000)
